    Not trying to compare dicks... Just something a large group of WI beer geeks do every once in a while. Fun looking into others cellars.

    I want to post mine up but I have no shelving right now, its out of control. Nice cellar! They may ask you to put this in the cellar section of the forum.

    My cellar just looks like two old full-sized refrigerators in my garage.

    Nowhere near that good (59 bottles in a fridge in the garage). I do, however, immensely enjoy seeing everyone else's cellar/collection.

    It's become an addiction haha. But yeah, I love looking into others cellars and seeing what they have/what they choose to cellar. Cheers!

    My cellar is a bunch of styro shippers in my crawlspace. Not very sexy to look at unfortunately.

    My cellar is quite pitiful. I have mixed Belgian Trappist Ales (6 or so) aging on a small shelf with a few bottles of Fullers Vintage Ale 2014

    If I lived in California, I'd wrap all my bottle in bubble wrap or there would be no reason to cellar. :flushed: Have you lost any bottles yet?

    Are you saying this because of earthquakes? If so, I can't live in fear my friend...I would probably break more bottles trying to bubble wrap them, then just leaving it to fate. After all, if my collection was destroyed cause of an earthquake, I'd probably have a lot bigger problems on my hands with things that actually matter (family safety, house, hysteria in Los Angeles, lol)

    Drank a Pretty Things barleywine and a Jackie O's BA brick kiln so far this summer. Added a Hand and Seal this past week. Pretty sure we're going to get into a BCBW tomorrow night. After that, we don't break into anything until the snow falls. I'm not rushing it!

    Just starting to build a cellar, what an awesome endeavor! Just traded for Abyss, some Tiny, Supplication, among other things. Really excited to keep trading and try some aged stuff!

    Lived in CA for 34 years, 11 of them in the bay area. I have felt less than a dozen earthquakes, and have lost or damaged exactly zero possessions. Yes, we have active faults up and down the coast, but it really isn't what the East Coast makes it out to be.

    [now that I say this, the big one will probably hit and I'll be stuck in the City all weekend. Good thing I brought my Cellarmaker growler into work today!]

    I used to stalk Criagslist for fridges more obsessively than beer forums. I miss those days when i actually needed three fridges....

    How's the temperature btw . Does it hold steady or is there big variation now that the fridge is so full?

    My cellar is about 90 or so bottles, packed in boxes in my upstairs hall closet. Hangs around 65-75 degrees year round, but I haven't experienced any real bad bottles even after 5 years at room temp.

    It really helps me that my cellar is a bunch of boxes that are unorganized and unlabeled. I'm imagining me going down to the basement, seeing all my beers lined up and organized (like many of the pictures), and being unable to help myself. The way my basement is, I can go retrieve a hammer or lobster pot or whatever and not even think about grabbing a cellared beer.
