I learned that we should store Bromine in brown coating glass bottle. But, I heard that halogen liquid is so reactive that it can melt even glass. So, I want to know the practical storage method of halogen.

I assume liquid halogen to be bromine. From here:
Glass, ceramic nickel or lead containers are suitable for bromine. Lead-lined steel tanks can be used. Only highly fluorinated plastics will resist corrosion. A free space of 8-10% by volume should be left in the container.
We know now that bromine can be stored safely in glass (with appropriate glass handling, of course). Now for the "brown" part.
Bromine can break down on exposure to ultraviolet light, a reaction shown here as part of an alkene bromination. Uncontrolled, this process could release reactive atoms; these may degrade surrounding materials and the products then contaminate the bromine and the surroundings. The brown glass commonly seen in chemical storage bottles is designed to screen out this radiation.
