So how many here drink at least two beers a day? This pace seems to keep me brewing often enough and doesn't allow for a buildup of HB. Obviously this is a average as the weekend I have a couple more and weekdays are sometime dry out days. And on the weekends friends visit for a couple beers.

Like you said, it depends on the day of the week and the circumstances. Weeknights, yeah maybe 1-3. Weekends anywhere from a 6 pack to a case or 2. Again, depending on the circumstances...

Not very many days go by where I don't have at least one, but I rarely have more than 4-5 in a day, even on weekends. I go through about a case a week on average.

average of about 2-3 per day. Weekend days are just other days ending in "y"... not any different, unless I am brewing in the AM, which means I get a much earlier start on my drinking.

Then again, I do drink wine and spirits occasionally, for a change.

I might not drink more that 1 or 2 during the week. But on the weekends, I may drink up to 1/2 case or only have 2 or 3. Having 4 children, I don't over do it on a regular basis. But if several of our neighborhood end up in 1 garage on a Friday or Saturday night, then all bets are off!

Typically 2-3 a night as well. Usually I will grab one as soon as I get home from work to unwind. Then I'll find some chores, have dinner with a glass of tea, then 1-2 more beers after that.

Typically 2 or 3 a day.......half liters mind you. Weekends........double that. Triple it for BBQ, or friends over. This Saturday two old friends of mine are in town.........we'll sit around a nice big fire in my back yard and drink beer all night on Saturday.......typically we kill 3 cases in these marathon sessions.

I cannot keep up with it brewing. Every other batch I'll brew a light grain bill pale ale, usually with some corn or rice added, that I can ferment for a week and bottle for 2 weeks......makes an excellent quick, easy, and cheap session beer that's still better tasting than 90% of the stuff on the shelf at Safeway.

Even with brewing 3 or 4 5 gallon batches a month, I still end up supplementing with a case of BMC (actually, usually Michelob Amberbock).

I would say my typical after-work routine is:

1. Check CO2 pressures
2. Taste a couple ounces of any beers currently carbonating (usually just one)
3. Fill up a beer of something else for drinking while cooking and eating dinner.

Once a week I'll have 3-4 beers if a buddy shows up or if I take some brew to a friends house.

They lock me up each night in the Mayberry jail and let me out in the morning to go to work.
