    So over the many years I've been tracking my consumption and am coming up on the #500 milestone (I'm at 499 to be exact). What are your best suggestions to make #500 memorable? I live in SE Michigan. Thanks.

    Something from Indianapolis? (that's a real place, right - typing that it sounded like a made up Star Wars place.) :wink:

    Bud Light Chelada or Mama Mia! Pizza. Milestone reviews should either be something really special that you've been holding onto, or a stupidly hilarious beer that makes no sense. There is no middle ground.

    See if they'll let you lean your head back under the tap and just pour the BB4D right into your mouth. Polish off the barrel.
