    My wife's name is Katherine. The One They Call Zoe is the name of the beer. It's a hoppy lager. It was a big hit with everyone from out of town... easy drinkin'. One of my faves.

    That is 586,738.826 L, 155,000 gal., or 19,680,000 fl. oz., which equals 1,640,000 bottles worth of beer. Something is off here.

    Well, there was a recent thread asking for Wedding named/related beers, so it would be convenient if your wife was named Zoe.

    I wouldn't call it luck, I'd call it...well luck I guess so what?

    I can say the same about your avatar. Strage Brew. What a classic.

    Between cornys and bottles probably 300-350. It always goes a little faster than expected and wanted though.

    I dont really have a "cellar" but I do have "overstock" shelves in my basement. The most I've ever had was probably 7-8 cases of mixed bottles, right now I probably have 5 cases or so. Only about 20 bottles in my makeshift "cellar", which is just another box in the basement.

    The most I've had is around 150 different beers aging in the cellar - currently around 35.

    Currently there are 110 bottles down there. The max was probably around 250, but I drank that down in an attempt to reduce. I try to keep it around 100, and am working towards a mostly lambic cellar ( I believe that 35 or so of those 110 are lambic currently).

    What about infinity! ^ infinity! ^ infinity!

    The ! denotes factorial :stuck_out_tongue: (for example 6! = 6x5x4x3x2x1)

    To answer the OP's question, I drink beers almost as fast as they arrive. My most is probably when two large boxes arrive at the same time. +- 40 bottles.

    Two mini-fridges full, a little more trickling into the food fridge, 3 cases of cellarables, and ~3 cases of homebrew is the biggest my stash got. I've drank it down to about half of that thus far.

    Probably right now. About 80 750ml bottles (mostly Belgians, and 5 Hunahpu and half a dozen other CCB 750s)), Probably about 60 4/6 packs (half Belgians [St. Bernardus, Duvel, Chimay, Scaldis, Delirium], half Imperial Stouts).

    about 70 bottles. I definetly buy more than I am able to drink. it's just that anytime I see something I can't buy in my area, I have to get it, even if not for immediate consumption.

    I have about 60-100 bombers but am now a trading addict so it fluxes. The problem is that there's so many good beers I need to try.

    on a beer run in college, i think i had about 18 cases of Iron City Light longnecks (i think they were on sale, 24 for like $6 or something) in my truck at once. it was terrible and yet simultaneously awesome.

    Sitting on about 160 bottles in the cellar right now, that fluctuates with things like Bruery orders, BCBS/KBS releases, DLD, etc... probably been up to 250 when there were a bunch of 12 ozers

    Not sure what the most I ever had at one time was, but I'm currently around 3-4,000 bottles. It's certainly not the highest nor lowest the count has been.

    While I wont get into the semantics about how cheap getting a tv and free basic networks is, I'll say both my comment and the one you quoted, were quotes from an At&t commercial. The commercial is one of probably 8 or so which depicts a focus group with little kids asking them questions and the kids giving hilarious answers.

    Half a case of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, an Allagash Black, an Allagash White, a six-er of Cadillac Mountain, 12 bombers of my god-awful first attempt at brewing an Irish dry stout, 30 bombers of my better attempt at brewing a dry stout, and 20 bombers of a decent attempt at a Russian Imperial Stout. All totalled, about 12 gallons of sweet, sweet intoxication.

    I'm right around 225 currently, including 750s, bombers, 12 oz, etc. I'd say the most I've been at was about 250.

    I'm guessing (because I have no excel file/list lol) I have 300+ 750's and 22's and another 100+ 12's.

    And I do drink 2+ a week, I'm just buying more than that :grinning:

    I'm at about 250 and am trying to get it under 200 (and eventually down to 50). My friend and I have a bet on whether or not I can break 200 with my bottles before he does with his weight!

    For the most part mine are all single bottles of different beers. I get "trade locked" a lot because I don't want to trade a bottle I haven't tried yet...so I go to the store to buy tradables (ending up with others, too) and further perpetuate my problem.

    I should call off this bet because I'm pretty certain my friend will lose 40 lbs before I net down 40 btls!

    EDIT: I realize that I shouldn't trade until I drink what I have.
