Depends on the day, week, or month.

Sometimes I'll go a couple weeks without just to clear the system. I'll also hold off before we have a get together with out friends, so it's easier to enjoy the side effects during a festive occasion.(There is no driving involved, we get all we need before hand)

Now this week, I'm over my average, but only because I've been doing a heap of beer research for my own brewing. So I've had a couple of 3 beer evenings. Because I had to go retry a few "standards" and retry a couple of styles with a new found knowledge.

Had a couple "recreation" beers just because beer's been on the brain this week. hehe

Usually 2 a day. Sometimes 3 (Imperial Pints)

I'll have one with dinner with the exception of Tuesdays and Thursdays (class nights) and one (sometimes 2) before my boy goes to sleep.

Weekends its whatever I feel like.

And the only time I drink before dinner is in the summer when my friend and I go fishing. Then we drink a growler before 9 lol

I try not to drink more than 6 a night during the work week, but then once the weekend gets here I will drink about double that.

2-3 at most usually if at all. If i'm at a party, watching a Colts game with friends, or at one of my favorite breweries I'll indulge and drink 4-5 if I have a DD. But that's generally once a month or so.

One thing I will say though is I don't like having JUST one beer. I tend to drink my beers 2 at a time.

Bringing this thread out of retirement....sitting here at work enjoying this threat so I will chip in on this conversation haha! I usually drink 2 beers a night, sometimes 3. I just like to come home and get a nice lil buzz of my homebrew, relax and watch some tv

Wow, zombie threads!

My beer drinking is regular, but not heavy. I'm pretty consistent with 1 per day, with dinner. Almost never more than that, and some days I don't feel like drinking anything alcoholic. For me, any more than that on a regular basis seems unnecessary. That was my consumption pattern long before I began brewing, as well. I like my beer, but don't feel any urges to drink large quantities to show my appreciation. :-)

Incidentally, I'm not fond of the stereotype that home brewers are all heavy drinkers. "Mostly" maybe, but not "all!" My reason for brewing is not that I want more beer, I just want better beer. So far so good!
