he aim of every scooper is to reach 10,000 ticks.  When you first start, it seems like it's impossible.  As you storm through the middle thousands, it becomes more of a beacon, beckoning you onwards.  When you reach the late thousands, it calls to you like a siren, and when you finally get there ..... was that it?  Seriously, it's a tremendous achievement to reach this figure, and full credit to the growing number who have now done it.  Drinking 10,000 different beers takes time, dedication (or should that be desperation?) and a lot of ching.  It's worth it; no money can buy this kind of prestige!

Listed here are the people who have completed this marathon in hopefully the order that they finished.  If you think different, let us know.

Remember, it's no use just saying "I must have had 10,000" - no date and gen, no appearance on the scoreboard!
