    Doing some drinking research. Just post bottle numbers and if you desire how they drank.
     
  2. Had a friend who had 15 of them. Seems a little excessive.
     
  3. I recently had bottle 1455 and it was pretty shitty.
    I had bottle 461 in June 2012 and it was godly.

    I remember seeing a pic of a bottle with a number around 10000 in the forums a while back.

    'Had'?

    On second thought, I guess 15 bottles of Rare would probably end me too.

    I think he means the bottle number, not how many someone had. but damn man, 15!? i thought I was lucky enough coming across 3 in my time!

    I'm holding full bottle #11,862 in my hands. On Saturday it will be empty. It is the last of 5 bottles I've owned spanning numbers in the 2,000's, 8,000's, 9,000's and 10,000's.

  26. 11, 862? WOW! I thought they only bottled 11,280? That is incredible.​


    They started the numbering at 11000 so everyone outside of Chicago could say it isn't really rare and is easy to get.

    That is crazy. I have 11,714. I sent an email to Goose Island inquiring about the bottles that were numbered higher than 11, 280. Will see what they say.
