I learned something the hard way. I was moving a case of beer on a basement shelf containing two cases of beer. It was apparently too much weight. The shelf collapsed. Only four bottles of beer broke, however, flying glass gave me an approximate 1 inch laceration at the back of my ankle. Make sure your storage shelves can handle the weight.

I stack mine in the master bedroom,as it's the warmest room in the house. Right next to my half stack. A 4X 12 fender rock pro 1000. Seemed right to me...:rockin:

Hmm...My Master bedroom has a shelf with dozens of antique teddy bears on it. Their beady little eyes follow me around the room. It's a little creepy.:D

I checked your profile and you are married. I'd have bet money you were single based on the fact that you're allowed to stack beer in you master bedroom. I know I could never get away with that.

You sir are a lucky man!:mug:

I have a cabinet I specifically designed to hold beer, along with people I kidnap and rape from Craigslist, but yes those shelves can get heavy.
