The Beer of the Month for
Bottle # 4,000 and 25th Anniversary
Well, after 25 years of bottle collecting, I finally reached bottle #4,000 this weekend. I celebrated with some friends with a 6L big boy of St. Bernardus 12 in the final moments of August 2019 which marked the month 25 years earlier I started the whole crazy thing with a return business trip to Antwerp, Belgium. Turns out it took exactly 5 years to the month since #3,000. Thanks to La Jolla Public House for hosting and allow us to bring the bottle!
2018 turned out to be one of my biggest years of the bottle collection, clocking in at 210 bottles. In January when I was putting up the beer shelves I got the bug to go big this year in an effort to get to 4,000 bottles in 2019, which would be the 25th anniversary of the collection. Should be in great shape to get there in the summer time for a big celebration.
Dogfish Head Master Collector
I wanted to make a post about a fellow collector, Victor from Delaware. To say he's a big Dogfish head fan is a bit of an understatement. He is a vertical collector, meaning he wants one of every bottle and product they make, including various years where they changed the label. His collection is 245 bottles strong, plus spirits and schwag.
1000th Brewery added!
After 24 years, I finally hit my 1,000th brewery! I was getting close to it last year, but after the audit I reshuffled several and had to delete a few.
The milestone brewery is Foothills, from Winsten-Salem NC. Bottle by my friend Jeff Becker.
