    Not everything was pushed all the way to the back. There was room for about 8-10 more bottles (though I've now added 5 and drank 1, so that number has decreased). I don't plan to have more inventory than this (hah.. plan anyway..) and short-term storage can happen in the main fridge for a few beers too.

    I love the Salty Scot, had one and picked up 4 more just to have on hand. Not very expensive compared to the RIS's etc. Quite sweet, lots and lots of toffee flavour. Lighter bodied than most scotch ales which is what I like about it.

    I have not, for as much beer as I have, there is still so much more I have not tried.

    I find that while the boxes look cool, they take up too much valuable real estate.
    I thought I had a pretty awesome beer 'frig- but JFryauff... DooD!!


    Klurejr- you need a full refrigerator, bro! (no freezer)

    The boxes really don't take up any extra room. Besides its what's in them that counts. As you can see I do have a liking for Firestone Walker beers. My top shelf is full of DBA,14,15,16 annv and Parabola. I took the photo with my Iphone so I couldn't fit the door in the pic but it is full of Parabola and I have a case of the 2013 on the way. I will have several bottles of each release. To me it seems to age well with time but is just as good fresh. Some people think otherwise. The second shelf down was full of Abyss and Deschutes 23rd and 24th. The wife keeps drinking them. Its about time to put a lock on the fridge. Good thing she is not fond of the Firestone beers.

    I currently use the Freezer to store frozen mugs for drinking water or milk out of (not beer mind you, I am a purist), it is also an extra storage for ice bags when we have parties and such.

    Also the Fridge was free, I simply moved it out of my kitchen when we bought a new one and rolled it into the garage.

    Thanks for the compliment. Some people just don't seem to understand good beer and the cost associated with it.

    Nice! Do you get Cantillon locally? If so, how much does it cost you?

    I do, availability is not good (pops up every now and then), I pay $8-18 for a 375 and the 750's are typically $25

    That's solid. They get distributed here too, but usually disappear the day they are put on shelves. And usually more expensive - $5-10 more per bottle. Bummer, because they are really drinkable beers that I'd like to pair with dinner more often.

    Picked up these fine bottles today to add to my rotating storage:

    Some delicious ones in that lineup, in addition to one Iíve not yet tried.

    Back from the dead!


    Current State of the Beer "cellar", Feb 2015:




    Just found a bottle of 2010 Jubel and Parrot in a Palm Tree, paid too much for them, but they are impossible to find and a local bottle shop found some old cases in the back of his storage. He only had 6 bottles of Parrot in a Palm tree and I picked up the last one around 4pm yesterday, he put them up on the facebook feed at 10am that morning.

    I need to start hoarding more beer and sitting on it and then selling it.... no wait, I would just drink it....

    Of course you would see that Josh.... A friend brought them to the house as a sorta joke, and that drawer specifically holds some beers I am saving for a friend who moved to Australia, I am saving it for the next time he visits as a continuation of the joke.

    But don't let it go too long...I found these in the back of my cellar a couple of nights ago:

    Your Beer Collection / Storage-img_1774-copy.jpg

    That's an '08 HoTD and an '03 Rogue Charlie 1981. The Fred was still kicking pretty good; but the Charlie was, as expected, well past its prime. I drank most of it anyways, of course.

    WOW! Some amazing collections here. I've only started hoarding in the past year or so, and it has made an expensive hobby even more expensive as I now have to buy double of anything that isn't super hoppy so I can drink one now and put another in the cellar [ie spare room cupboard].

    Got a couple of treats in there though, not sure how long I'll keep this one, probably not 25 years...

    Tagged and added to BEX to track what's in the frellar. Maxed out at around 77 bottles. What gets opened is posted to Untappd.

    I like that Tag idea. I have a few in the back that need to get opened up.

    Yep. There's plenty of info out there on keezers (same thing but for home brew tapping) and cellaring using freezers with external controls. I've not seen a name laid down for this use yet so I opted for "frellar" last night. I keep the mean temp around 55 F.

    Here's a good into that includes a link to Amazon for the controller I'm using. Beer cellar/fridge help | Community | BeerAdvocate

    My buddy has two of those setup in his Garage, one can hold two 5 Gallon Carboys and a few bottles for storage, and his other is a full 8 footer, we can put 4 or 5 full 6 gallon carboys in it plus room for bottle storage. We use them for Fermentation, keep the beer at a specific temp for the entire fermentation cycle.

    Yeah, I really should do this as well. I've tried it a few times over the years, but don't keep it up. But I HATE storing beers so long that they pass their prime. (Not my Hardy's or Samiclaus- those last decades, but the other stuff...)
    Hmmm- maybe instead of tagging them w/ when I got them, I should tag them w/ when they should be drank?


    BTW- your beer fridge and my beer fridge could be brothers.

    HAHA! Yep.

    I tend to only "store" beers that can be aged, Stouts, Barley Wines, Sours, Porters and Barrel Aged goodies. If it is a pale or IPA or anything hoppy, it gets drank pretty quick.
