Default Oh Nooooo!!! I am all out of homebrew!

and I had to go to the store and buy some Sam Adams. I am not against all commercial brews but I prefer to drink homebrew. I am still a noob at brewing and apparently I need to work more on my pipe line. I just went to kegging my beers and for some reason it feels like the beer gets consumed more quicker.

Question for everybody....what percentage of the beer you drink is homebrew? Do you sometimes take time off from brewing and go commercial for a while? Or do you prefer to drink nothing but YOUR beer?

I drink ~80% or more my beer, but always have some bottles of something commercial on hand. My wife drinks about 95% my beer.

I'd say it's about 70% homebrew here. I still love getting and trying new things. Lucky for me, the stocked beer at the store over here changes weekly. Always something new to try.

Haha that's classic. My wife is not a beer drinker, but a wine drinker. I wish she drank my beer so it would be easier to justify my brewing obsession

Just had the house painted while I was away. The painter is a good friend, told him to help himself. Well, never imagined he will polish off 2 kegs. Plan on brewing 2 batches this weekend and next to catch up.

Probably 90% homebrew here these days. I've been brewing every other week this year, and the pipeline is fat these days.

What did the paint job look like?

To answer the OP:
About 90% Homebrew, and when we go out we prefer to get craft brews. Sometimes the pipeline dries out then it's back to Yuengling Amber Lager (wife) and Black & Tan (me).

I love Yuengling but it is not sold in CA! Damn! I just brewed an EPA and Irish Stout. Sounds like the perfect recipe for Black and Tans

My only commercial beer purchase in 2012 (outside of pubs and such) was a couple of half-cases of SA's Hopology (and I did the same thing a month or so ago). Otherwise it's all home brew, with a fairly broad and deep pipeline...

Cheers!
