    Do you know how old Straight Bourbon is?

    The Forum has been here since 1999. This appears to be the first post/thread on September 7, 1999 http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...hp?271-Welcome!

    And on September 8, 2003 it reached 20,000 posts here http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ght=1999+posts

    Today we are at 305,086 posts. And some of those 305,086 are even worth reading before posting .

    Re: Do you know how old Straight Bourbon is?

    Archive.org has the first historic page as December 1998 and the earliest join dates of members is 1999. Alexa says it is "over 15 years old."
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    And the funny thing is, the Boss isn't Member No. 1. He has explained this earlier and the answer is, well, in the archives!

    And If I had joined earlier, I would have known what to bunker; things like ER 101.

    Wow, the first page was 17 months before I could legally consume bourbon in the United States.

    It's grown a lot, hasn't it? I joined on 11/07/1999. Still kind of proud to be Member No. 8. Sounds like a bourbon brand.
