Default Noob's pointless post 1

I had such a noob moment last weekend I thought I’d share it. Though I’m sure I’m not the first one to experience this. I went to a friend’s house for a party this weekend. There were several of us drinking beer. Finishing one, I went to the kitchen and put my bottle in the recycle area. Something niggled at the back of my mind. Paying it no mind, I finished another and put it in the recycle area. That’s when it hit me. I was setting my 12oz next to two orphaned 22oz bottles, of which I had none at home in my horde. A quick rinse and they were mine. It seems bottling brewers are by default, bottle collectors.
Hey man, can I have that bottle?

YOu have no Idea. I was up to 12 cases of 12oz bottles and 3 cases of 22s once. It was rediculous. THen I bought a kegerator.

That is how the obsession begins.1 bottle here 1 bottle there before you know it you have a whole closet full of bottles.

I asked my brother inlaw to start saving his bottles for me and in return I will give him beer. In less then a month and a half, him and his friends had about 350 rinsed bottles for me. I owe him some brew.

Very True. It seems unfortunately hard to find people who enjoy pop-top brown bottle beers. I have 6 cases full right now and need 9 more in the next 30 days. I only have maybe three cases of empties on deck. By my math, that's a lot of Sam Adams from BJ's in less than a month. Anyone thirsty?

My sister works at a sushi restaurant and she had people save the 22oz for me. This combined with what we drink and I am set. Until I can afford a kegerator this will have to do. I don't mind bottling, getting good at it.
