It’s a double header!

The more bottles and cans I add, the harder it is to hit numbers that allow for a better description (such as 1000 bottles or 500 breweries).  In my latest cataloging session I hit two of these within a few beers!

First up, I now have 750 breweries represented in my collection. The beer/brewery that topped it off was Tiny Bomb from Wiseacre Brewing Co.

Within a few more beers being cataloged, I came across container 2500.  The beer that got me to 1/4 of 10,000 was Fireberry from Shipyard Brewing Co.

The collection has grown to staggering proportions.  I have gone far past filling the shelves in my office to a point where I literally sit surrounded by cases of empty bottles and cans.  I’m either going to have to suck it up and pay for off site storage somewhere, or find a brewery somewhere that needs a display idea (and a ton of room).

Here is where the collection stats stand at the moment.

Containers Added 2504
Repeats 80
Size Difference 19
Still to drink 64
Cans 655
Bottles 1849
Unique Beers 2405
Breweries 752
Classic Cans 44

I am a labeorphilist (one who collects beer bottles) looking to discuss the adventures often involved in obtaining the bottles and the challenges that accompany the hobby.
