Why not? Let's see the medical evidence if that's the case.

Your answer sounds like one of the "traditional" answers to me.

My brother is an M.D. and he says that a sixpack a day will not harm anyone's liver at all.

We're all individuals, which means we are all different in every way. It's not a one-size fits all solution to life's pleasures.

Problem? Doesn't sound like one to me, anyway, unless someone expects it to automatically be one... Right?

This is just my way of thinking. I do not mean to ruffle anyone's feathers, so to speak.

I probably average 6 beers a day I have dropped 15 pounds in the last year. It's all in what you do. Like was said before, if you're not turning into an a**hole when you drink I don't know what the problem would be.

Your liver is what metabolizes fat and enables you to lose weight. By drinking six beers a night, you're tying it up by forcing it to metabolize the alcohol in your body instead, this decreasing (or stopping completely) carlorie burn during that time (not to mention taking in at least 100 calories/beer).

The effects of drinking go further than just damage from alcohol.

If the original poster is seriously considering sneaking a drink in the woodshed, that pretty much defines "problem" in my book. Yeah, it's an individual thing, but if the person who is closest to you thinks there might be an issue, well... it's time for an open, honest examination.

I won't dispute much of what you say. But if you are suggesting that the taste of a homebrew (or any good brew) can't be as enjoyable on the sixth bottle as on the first, I do disagree with that.

There are few occasions when I drink more than four beers in an evening between getting home from work and going to bed, but I often drink more than six beers on a whole day when I'm off work. I don't notice any difference in my ability to appreciate the taste whether it is my first beer at 10:00 AM on a Saturday (e.g. breakfast), or the last one at 11:00 PM at night.

Bottle in 16 ounce bottles (16.9 or 500ml) instead of 12 ounce bottles. Cut back from a sixer to only four.

Or for a real sacrifice, bottle in 22 ounce bottles and only have three.

Works for me also. Then you can tell her that the glass you drink from ( that she must never touch) don't hold a full 12 oz of brew and that you can drink more of them and still not add up to the 6 you previously used to drink. lol.

Bring her over here we'll get my SWMBO to train her. She's figured out that if she keeps up I don't become annoying....

I drink out of 330ml bottles most of the time and I enjoy the taste otherwise i would not drink as many maybe I should also point out the fact thaT when a guest comes to visit the miss's offers them a home brew as well as me when I accept I cope it when the guest leaves whether it be my old man or some 1 else
I dont like the fact that she could give away my home brew and go made when I want 1 so I have 8 cases/cartoons 24/375mls left to go and I am not attempting to make any more till they r gone so I can come clean and steady my drinkin but while its their I'll drink it cause it's nice taste.

I also have a 3 yr old how hates my brew but loves to get her dad a beer from the fridge in dads bar

Do you have a beer gut yet? If not, your ok. If so, trade her in for a trailer trash queen with a beer gut too, then you can both drink alot.
