Can I store my beer in "antique green" colored bottles?

We are concerned that long term storage in anything other than Amber glass could result in unwanted flavor changes in beer.  Please let me know!

For a great example of beer bottled in Antique Green bottles, see Community Beer in Dallas, TX for their 750ml bottles. Bottles supplied by All American Containers.

Your concerns are well founded. Amber prevents penetration by UV light far better than any other color. There may be some protection from UV with green compared to clear glass, but I think you'll run a higher than necessary risk of having beer become light struck.

Sure.  Some antique green bottles are darker and more resistant to skunking.  as a manufacturer we can make whatever you need

The most important is your storage conditions
...Little side note,
 Think of any major brewery in Belgium and you will see that most of them are using green glass..and this for many years.

Storage conditions and quality of beers are important factors.
The type of green and the thickness of the bottles are also important.
