    23... so just less than 10% which, I feel, is acceptable.

    62 :slight_frown: lol

    Psst! Beers of Fame: 119 (almost half :stuck_out_tongue:!), including 8 of the top 10 and 19 of the top 25 :grinning:...

    FWIW, my numbers are basically from drinking what's available in my area, not by trading or traveling or ordering online.

    Back when there was a Top 100 list I had made it to about 90, then BA changed the criteria and blew it all to hell.

    I've tried 50. Which is at the same time too many, and not enough. Truly, I miss the old Top 100 list circa 2006. I remember casually encountering and trying 70-80 of those beers, and had a great time doing so. I'd like to see more beer of the quality the Top 250 represents, but in a wider range of styles. I'd also like for the common BA to acknowledge that completely great beers can be found within a wide range of styles.

    Since I started on BA in January 2014.... 19 of the top 250. I thought I had more at one time but they may have dropped off the list.

    42 of the HOF list. Not bad for a 7 month period IMO.

    I really do hunt them down when I am shopping.

    158.

    The list keeps changing and therefore it obviously gets harder and harder to get a higher number.

    I've only had or currently have 21 off the top 250. After browsing through it to count em up I think we should change the name to the Top 250 whalez !!! Some of those beers are unobtainable unless you have deep pockets or are a trading genius

    53 of the top 250

    A few years back, I began focusing a lot more on homebrews than grabbing the most sought after commercial craft beers. I have to admit, it was kind of exciting trading with people from Europe for Westys and several De Struise selections.

    so far only 2 (Old Rasputin and Old Stock) didn't really care for either. They were both brewed by North Coast Brewer. I had no idea that they were made by the same brewer when I got them. I bought them at different places and at different times. Since then Old Stock has fallen out of the top 250.

    At exactly 100 with 13 in the cellar to hit up at some point. Also planning to head up to Hill Farmstead in August so hopefully that will knock a few more off the list.

    I am at a whooping 37 as of today. But as of last week at this time I was only at like 33, so at this rate I will be through them sooner than later.
