    Top 5 Most:
    28 from DFH
    25 from New Belgium (and they don't even get distributed to my State!)
    21 from Matt (Saranac)
    14 Sierra Nevada
    12 Each from: Brooklyn, Evil Twin, Harpoon, Hill Farmstead, Sixpoint

    *edit + 12 on Saranac as yet another variety pack was just put out...
    **edit 2 + 12 more because yet another Saranac variety pack was JUST put out.
    (not bashing Saranac, as I do like them, but they do seem to put a new variety pack out every day)...I wish Evil Twin would put out $10.99 variety 12-packs...

    Just to clarify (and I'm pretty sure you're being facetious, but just so everyone's clear on the intent here): the poll's asking how many different beers you've had from the same brewery. I guess that's a pretty important modifier.

    How anyone would know how many total beers they've had from a specific brewery is beyond me, and now I'm wondering whether everyone within the relatively large percentage of people responding to the 46+ option even understood the question.

    Well, I took this to mean how many *different* brews you've had from a single brewery. If we're going by total volume, the top is still Boulevard, but the number is exponentially higher than 23.

    I was a little disappointed that my high number is so much lower than so many other peoples', so I compensated by doing a longer list. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Also: these numbers represent what I've had on BA. I've only been a member for 10 months, but I've been drinking craft beer for about 15 years.

    • 23 - Boulevard
    • 16 - New Belgium
    • 15 - 23rd Street Brewery (Lawrence, KS brewpub)
    • 11 - Sam Adams
    • 10 - Free State Brewing
    • 9 - Green Flash
    • 8 - Avery, Deschutes and Kiuchi (Hitachino Nest)
    • 7 - Great Divide, North Coast, Odell, Stone and Lakefront
    • 6 - Sierra Nevada and Schlafly
    • 5 - 21st Amendment, Ommegang, Goose Island, Sammy Smith, Tallgrass and McCoy's Public House (another local brewpub)
    • 4 from The Bruery, Lagunitas, Bell's, Unibroue and Mother's
    It's no surprise to me that my top two are the two breweries that paved the way for me to find a love for craft beer.

    Sam Adams has come out with a lot of new beers fairly recently. I've tried many of them.

    Proximity to the brewery makes this one for me, 28 from fff.

    I'd say 11-15 range from Stone. Unless you count every years release of say old guardian, double bastard and IRS, then the number would be much higher.

    76 from Sierra Nevada. And I know there are dozens more that I've tried from them that aren't in the database.

    Had 6-10 of Founders, Bells, New Belgium, La Trappe, and DFH. I tend to look for particular styles I like and try as many of those as I can as opposed to sticking to one specific brewery.

    81 different beers from Kernel (London), including collabs.

    Ahhh...nope. That wasn't clear. Considering that, my stats will change to the other side of the spectrum.

    I have not reviewed them all but after counting I realized I have had 52 different Bruery beers.

    55 different beers from The Bruery, according to my Untappd check-ins. Number is not inflated by different vintages of the same beer.

    General question - for those of you above, say, 25 for a given brewery, am I correct in assuming most of those are either brewery-only on tap or from brewery-only releases? I'm wondering how many breweries actually put more beers than that into general release. Well, other than Sam Adams.

    Of those 25 I would say that I'd buy 20 of them again... they rarely disappoint

    I've had 38 different Sam Adams beers and that doesn't count the long shot series, no way anyone else is close to that. When I was a brand new beer geek I loved Sam and went through their entire collection as fast as I could. Now, I don't often drink Sam, but when I have a lot of friends that like the mix-packs so I get to try their newer stuff pretty regularly.

    I've had a good chunk of the beers Dry Dock has ever produced. At least 40-50'ish.

    Wow. I never even considered the possibility that anyone would interpret the question that way—although I guess taken literally it could have been read that way. Common sense, though. I mean, seriously.

    I think I'm going to discount basically every vote for 46+, which would give the graph the much more expected bell shape.

    Out of 155 Brewers I have had, only 4 are double digits. I have a great deal at 6-9 beers each.

    21 Dogfish Head
    14 Sam Adams
    13 Elysian
    10 Lagunitas

    Not sure off the top of my head, but every two weeks I buy at least a six pack of what Shorts is offering, so I went with 46+

    Common sense would be to clarify what you're asking. "Beers" is ambiguous and can mean drinks or styles/brands. Had you used the words unique or different I would have answered as you desired. But in the end, I've had over 70 beers from RR. of those, three were unique brands.

    I think we need a new poll for the people who answered this poll:

    How many interpreted the question as "unique" beers, rather than total beers?

    Personally, I have reviewed the most from Tired Hands, with 9 total. It's more intriguing when the brewery is a brewpub and there is no guarantee that they'll brew it again. Hence more reviews...
