Default Increased Beer Consumption

So does anybody notice a rise in their Brewing/Beer consumption during the winter months. Or during any other times of the year?

Not here, we have the rainy season and the not so rainy season. I did notice an increase when I built my kegerator though. Does that count?

I always run at 100% beer drinking efficiency. No room for seasonal fluctuations.

Are you sure it is not just the election season? This election has got me drinking more.

But, yes. I find it much easier to have more than a couple beers in the cooler weather.

Allow me to be contrary. I drink more during the summer months because I'm not working as much. Sitting around watching TV and drinking beer is a pipe dream for me during the winter. Way too busy at work.

Really, I'm about the same. I hate that it's true, but my drinking fluctuates more with my stress level than the weather.

Definitely!






Wait, No.

Like Joe, if I drink tooo much I get the sp......Oh. He didn;t say that did he?

Ummm..Okay.

I used to be pretty conservative. When the keezer was outside I found it to be a chore to go "out there" to get a beer. Now, it's like 3 foot from my sofa in the TV room so, I am assured to have up to several pints before beddy-by-time.

This has also prompted me to brew more.

The weather may have a little contribution to motivate me as well but, I am not so sure anout that either because I have yet to brew the fall. For certain it will be more comfy in the garage while heating and boilung but, I dread the cleanup bit.

Brrr. Cold and wet does not appeal to me at all.
