Originally posted by Dave Tong: Bacar in San Francisco has a pretty good selection - typically around the 65 mark. They also pour by the glass, by the 2-ounce pour, in 250ml and 500ml decanters, and in "flights".
Plus they often have wines that you wouldn't expect to see by the glass, such as Rafanelli or Dalla Valle.
Never seen 100+ by the glass though. I'd wonder how they manage to keep them fresh.

I don't think so. I doubt they have much more than that by the *bottle*.
If they have more than a few wines by the glass, I assume they use a nitrogen blanket system like Cruvinet
although I'm in Alabama, my thoughts on btg programs might still be relevant. I'm a wine buyer for a restaurant in Alabama, and we don't have the volume of big city California restaurants, but I find that my btg selections move correctly at 20 glass pours. I change my wine list 3 times a week, not because i want to, but because I have to..
I only buy the best wines, and use volume to lower the price... for a few examples.... I've done the following wines in the last two weeks...all 6 ounce pours...
I think number of wines btg is less of a concern when the value of the wines is very high..and allocation is low so the selections change constantly... give me a holler if you are ever in LA (lower Alabama)... I'll be happy to taste you through my BTG and see if it stacks up to the 100BTG'ers
