What are we supposed to be trying to beat? The amount of empties?

If so, how many are there?

I did bottle collections in college, until I learned the danger of beer-bottle-stank.

yeah, I am in college now, and we are renting this apartment. We had to drill anchors in the wall, so goodbye deposit. The shelves are starting to bend too...

Within these assorted pics are over 700 bottles and at least 3 more cases in the garage. I also have over 20 mini-kegs and 25 cornies...

#1 has 14 - 20 bottle cases = 280 bottles
#2 has 70
#3 has 240 bottles in 12 cases (under the bottom shelving)
#4 has 140 or so...

That's about 730 showing...but I wouldn't call it a "collection" since most of these are "working" bottles . They've been emptied and refilled many times..., but hey, you asked.

Close enough?
