    Doing some drinking research. Just post bottle numbers and if you desire how they drank.

    Had a friend who had 15 of them. Seems a little excessive.

    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'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.

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

    Only ever had one bottle it's at my apartment still #105. Not a big bottle collector, but that one is pretty cool.

    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.
