    If you could, what beer would you kick off and which beer not on the list would you include?

    I think it's fair to say...NOT ENOUGH!

    Now let's ask how many empty bottles I have....tack on another 50ish.

    Its been a while since I've checked but I'm pretty sure Expedition stout is still on there, so yeah got one of those. Most of the beer I buy doesn't last very long and I haven't been buying as much lately anyway as I've been expanding my Scotch and Armagnac horizons and that has a tendency to put a dent in my wallet

    Of stuff sitting around the house in various areas -

    12 ✖ Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)
    19 ✖ Bourbon County Brand Stout
    63 ✖ Hopslam Ale (Unfortunately forgotten in fridge...)
    149 ✖ Péché Mortel (Imperial Stout Au Cafe)
    187 ✖ Founders Imperial Stout
    212 ✖ Stone Imperial Russian Stout
    214 ✖ Founders Backwoods Bastard
    237 ✖ Chris Banker / Insurgente / Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout

    Not too many from current top 250. I'd bargain even fewer on top new beers. But heck, since we are on the subject, let's look at the beer of fame list.

    37 ✖ 90 Minute IPA
    48 ✖ Duvel
    51 ✖ Double Bastard Ale
    61 ✖ Burton Baton
    62 ✖ Bell's Expedition Stout
    79 ✖ World Wide Stout
    80 ✖ Schneider Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock
    83 ✖ Orval Trappist Ale
    104 Duchesse De Bourgogne
    107 ✖ Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout
    108 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale
    117 ✖ Three Philosophers Belgian Style Blend (Quadrupel)
    134 120 Minute IPA
    159 ✖ Third Coast Old Ale
    196 ✖ Founders Dirty Bastard
    211 ✖ Brown Shugga'
    219 ✖ Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    247 ✖ Weihenstephaner Kristallweissbier

    Little better but looking at these short lists and knowing what's in my cellar, I think I've either got a wildly different pallet or I have a lot of underrated stuff sitting around. Either way, it's interesting to see what I've got when placed against the top lists.
