How many of the Top 250 have you had?

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by BrewddhistDrunk, Mar 31, 2013.

  1. so the recent top 10 thread got me curious as to how many of the current top 250 beers i've had. using the square root of the quadratic equation of the function of the circumference of pi i came up with 28/250 or about 11%. let me be clear this is not a friendly general survey to guage my consumption in comparison to other BA's, it is a competition. go. ;)
  2. Not competing because I will not win but 227/250

  6. Only 60, but considering I've only had 382 different beers up to this point that's a pretty good percentage of my total beers had (15.7%).

    61. Considering a year ago I've never even heard of any of them. Unfortunately a lot of them are sours.

  9. The new top 250 is childsplay and boosts the offshelf balllers considerably in comparison to the previous ultra punitive top 100 list that had like Vanilla Coconut Speedway, Double Nelson, and other ridiculously limited offerings.

    I have had 248/250.

    Too lazy to track down both of those offerings from Columbus Brewing Company.

    40 with about 18 in the basement. A few of those I probably tried before I kept track.
  15. 69, plus there is a Bell's Black Note in my fridge, waiting to share with friends. Only 2 of the 69 were foreign beers.

    31 which is pretty good for Louisiana I feel like
  17. Until I went through the list, it was 47.
    After review it's now 53, as I found 6 on the list that I never marked (I just did quick hads)

    I was also surprised that I have 25 more on the list in my cellar that I've yet to try.
    I'll kill a couple of those tomorrow with the family.

    Reviewed 120, I've had 170 of them or so... not "had" in the BA sense of the word. Like, I've had them in or around my mouth.

    lambics, saisons... things w/ that bit of funk. Don't like it. Even if they're supurb examples of the styles. my palate rejects it.

  23. Jpark and MarkintheGwar have offered, I just haven't gotten on my shit to review those.

    I have been too busy freezing beers, boiling barrel aged barleywines, that kinda immature attention seeking shit.

    257. You may think I'm making this up, but the list has changed since I started typing and I'm going to include all of them.
    Alright, I'll go count and give you a real answer.

    50-something, with a few more of them in my fridge or in my basement. My budget will not currently allow me to expand that, sadly.
  33. 116 right now with a couple in the wings.
