I like to peruse the Cellaring/Aging board on Beer Advocate and you do come across a lot of people warning of building up too much and stuff ends up going past its prime.
I can see it happening. In my closet or fridge, it seems like I always have at least 5 or 10 bottles waiting to be shared with others. So, I never even think about grabbing something from the cellar when headed to a tasting.
I have a couple cases of bombers and about a case of smaller bottles cellaring, but I have no idea why at this point. I keep saying I'm saving them for a special occasion or some such, but never seem to break them out. I plan to start drinking it down soon.
I don't have a whole lot. Some Grand Reserves 12 and 13, some Bruery Bois, GI sisters, a couple Fantomes, random assortment of homebrews, and random barleywines. Recent additions are a few SP Barley Legals.

I keep a dorm fridge for some of my "higher end" brews that I want temp controlled and then a couple boxes in a closet for everything else. Honestly I don't take it very seriously but I do have a couple beers that are going on a few years now, for whatever reason I have like 3-4 years of Narwhal, Founders Breakfast, Black Butte and the Firestone Anniversary beers.

I was keeping track at one time. But now I have no idea what I have. It's some decent ones. I have a dorm fridge with a thermostat on it set to 55. I also have boxes of stuff set away. I really need to go through all of it soon.
