The only bottle I bought this summer was Brux, which I had to justify by adding the dregs to my Saison. I do like to hit the Beer-Fests though.

I probably purchase the equivalent of a six-pack a week to supplement and add variety to my homebrew supply. I also go to out to the local beer bar about twice a month. They have 60 taps and I like to see what's new. I also tend to make the rounds of the beer and wine stores once a month to see if anything new catches my interest.

My commercial beer drinking has slowed down a lot over the last year or so for several reasons. First of all, we just had a baby, so the weekend binges have all but ceased. Also, I've gotten to a point in my craft beer drinking experience where I've tried most of the standard releases available in this region. So, I no longer have the need to try as many different beers as possible driving my drinking. Finally, now that my wife is no longer pregnant, we are dipping into our wine supply.

My husband and I drink mostly what we brew. From what I read on here I am beginning to think I am the odd wife lol I brew the beer for my husband and he makes wine. This is a hobby we both enjoy, I get to wip up something new in the kitchen and he helps me bottle it.
We don't buy much beer or wine any more.
All tho I did ask him to pick up a 12 pack of what ever Sam Adams looks good on his way home today. I am running low on bottles and I like the idea that I get new bottles for my brew that come pre filled.

I buy about 2 six packs or four bombers a month. Used to be more before I started working 7 days straight every other week. I have 3 kegs full at all times plus atleast 3 cases of various homebrew so I can't justify spending a lot of money on commercial brew. I love variety. Currently have an APA, American Amber, and a Oktoberfest IPA hybrid on tap, and Belgian Blonde in bottels.

I buy beer for the bottles. My LHBS sells 12 empty bottles for $12.. I can go to the store and buy 12 bottles of Widmir Bros Hefe with beer in them for $13. So for the same price as the empty bottles I can buy bottles with beer in them..

Oh my, $12.00 for 12 empty bottles. My LBS sells cases of 24-12oz bottles for $13.90. And I thought that was a rip off for empty bottles. You just made me feel better about the prices I pay for my bottles.

+1 Especially in the Summer/Fall IPAs and pale ales shipped from the west coast seem to be crappy as soon as they hit the shelves in Florida. It must be the heat. In the winter/spring the're not bad. Belgians, Stouts, Porters, etc. don't seem to have that problem. My homebrew IPAs and pale ales may not be super great, but better than anything you can buy in central Florida (except on tap in bars).
