Just did a head count of how many bottles of alcohol I have in the house. 101 bottles of beer 3.5 bottles of wine 22 bottles of liquor I usually don't keep nearly that much beer on hand, but I've gotten a bit backlogged lately. Reasons: 1. I trade beer on another beer forum that I frequent. That's probably 20 or so bottles. 2. I stocked up on Oktoberfest beers while I could still get them. I love Marzen beers, and I refuse to drink Christmas beer (currently on store shelves) until around mid December. 3. I always purchase rare/limited beers while they're still available. 4. I don't drink on weekdays anymore, that only leaves 2-3 days a week to drink beer, many of those times I'm at the pub or out socially. Anyway, way too many beers/liquors to list but here's a few highlights: Beer: Surly Darkness Westleveren 8 Westleveren 12 (Delicious. Maybe the best beer in the world.) Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2006 and 2007 versions Stone Ruination IPA Weyerbacher XIII New Glarus Unplugged Bohemian Pilsner, Unplugged Berlinner Weisse, Unplugged Smoke on the Porter, Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart Port Old Viscosity Tyranena Hop Whore and Rocky's Revenge Sierra Nevada Hop Harvest 2008 Avery Grand Cru "The Beast" 2007 Three Floyds Behemoth Barleywine Dieu de Ciele Peche Mortel Bells Expedition Stout 2007 And many more. If you're a beer geek, you should be drooling by now. Wine: Nothing real special. Just some random bottles of red. One is by a Chilean winery called Viu Manent, the wine is Secreto(Secret). Hard to find in the US, good stuff. Liquor: Most of the usual. Rum, tequila, bourbon, etc. About 8 types of gin. (My girlfriend loves good gin and martinis) I did buy a bottle of Macallan 15 year recently, which is super delicious. So there you have it! Any BITOG beer geeks out there, come over and party sometime!
