Default Do you guys set a limit on your drinks?

Just curious.

I've been trying to have a beer a day except on the weekends. I usually keep to it, but every once in while I might throw down 2 or 3. I'd say I pretty much drink at least 6.9 days a week =P
Do you guys limit your intake in any way at all? Always curious to know.

I drink pretty much every day, but I hardly get drunk. I suppose when I start feeling a little buzzed, I'll stop, but 2-3 beers a day isn't really out of the question.

I'm in the same boat. When I'm having beer it's like 2-4 a night. I try not to drink every night and might go a few days in between without having a beer. Once I start thinking about craft beer though, it's just to easy to pull out a great homebrew and dive in.

I must drink a lot more than you folks....4-6 beers or so then go to gin and tonics ....although I prefer a good homebrew or craft beer but a good gin and tonic brings me to the level of satisfaction I like.
This is on weekends of course. Weekdays it typically 2 craft/homebrews and a couple G&Ts

I average 1 per day through the week. On weekends I have more but usually no more than three spread over a whole day.

Nope. All in moderation. From scientific studies (I know, I know) it has been suggested that a brew or two a day is actually good for your long term health! You know, antioxidants and other stuff I know nothing about. So. keep it to one or two a day and you'll live longer!
I read that on the internet, so I know it true!

New study says some positive results from coffee and beer. ( moderation)

Just like food.

To keep down the number of brews you can try larger bottles and brew higher ABV. A single 7% 750ml does me nicely for an evening.

Otherwise brew up some low alcohol beers.

I don't set limits, but I notice during the week my body tends to feel like stopping after two beers.

That is if I have a couple with dinner about 6ish, I kinda hit a wall after two (unless I'm at a beer tasting or a brewpub after work or something geared towards drinking.) Usually it's when my sweet tooth kicks in, and I want something dessert like, at that point I'm done with beer for the night.

During the weekend I'll probably start earlier, and drink throughout the day. Yesterday the Baseball game started at 4, and I started brewing a small batch of Midas Touch while the game was on, so I think I drank 4 or 5 between 4 and 9 pm.... Only about one an hour or so....
