    Well that's 2 on my "want" list. I was promised a bottle if Hunahpu from this year's festival that has yet to materialize, and I'm hoping my local stores get Pirate BOMB! any day now.

    That's a great looking cellar. I like your avatar BTW. I had that BOMB! label last year on a trip to Dallas. That's the only place I've ever seen it.

    Thanks, and yeah I've only seen this label in San Antonio. Haven't seen it in Houston (hometown) yet

    Keep checking, I got mine yesterday. My bottle guy said FL didn't get that much. That the distributor is doing only a case per store.

    Thanks, I plan on checking today. One beer manager in my area is usually pretty good about tweeting out any new arrivals. He always gets Prairie beers so hopefully he doesn't hold out on me about the Pirate BOMB!

    I used to have/had quite a few 2-3 years ago. It sure has evolved since then. I would be surprised if I have had more than 15 at this point.

    I've got 14. I thought I was at 15. I've come to the conclusion that I'll never hit all 250. Way, way to many rares. I've been chasing a full list for a while and picked up a few only to have them drop of the list and be replaced with more to chase.

    Off of the top of my head:
    Bourbon County Stout
    Zombie Dust
    Barrel Aged Bomb!

    If I've had any it was by chance as I stoutly maintain that lists are a restriction on my right to swallow whatever swill is on sale.

    24 but off the point slightly, whats the criteria for a top 250 beer as i have a single shot for example, rated 4.4 and not in top 250?

    103! And a few more in the cellar. The back end of the list changes so much though. Seems like my number drops if I don't stay on top of it.

    Very nice list. Last Snow in New York? Have you tasted it? Funky Buddha isn't too far from me. Really good stuff.
