    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. :wink:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
