I was flattered yesterday to receive a wee bit of press on Eater.com for all my beer geeking & drinking. Aren’t you proud of me, Mom?
It got me thinking…with three separate beer programs at three separate locations running at once, maybe I should take a moment to take stock. I’ve become my frickin’ childhood self again, but instead of collecting M.U.S.C.L.E men or baseball cards, I’m stockpiling beer like ‘Prohibition II’ is just around the corner.
The beers change constantly, and certainly with the seasons, with newbies making appearances as much as possible. I guess it would be easier to just lock it down and re-order each time, but that’s as painfully boring to me as watching the Jersey Shore.
So far all you fellow beer geeks out there, I’ve posted the pages from our respective beer lists, and here’s a brief sum up of dorky facts that make my pulse quicken like when I scored the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card:
- Total beer selections (3 locations): 82
- Beer selections at Hearth: 26
- Beer selections at Terroir EVil: 24
- Beer selections at Terroir Tribeca: 32 (25 bottled, 7 draft)
- International: 32
- West Coast/Colorado/Mid-West: 26
- East Coast (not including New York): 10
- New York: 14
Here’s a closer look at the lists (just click on the jpg’s to enlarge them)
*Warning: looking this over without a pint in hand may lead to rash & fever
The moral? I’ve got a sickness. And I need your help to feed me the medicine. Come on down to the East Vilage and Tribeca. Let’s share a pint.
