Just out of curiosity, I've noticed that many of those who have signatures seem to list A LOT of beer in process and bottled/kegged.

My question is how the heck do you drink that much beer? I've read about people brewing every week. That just seems like a lot of beer to consume!!

That being said,

I share more than I enjoy myself. I enjoy sharing it and helping others realize there's more than budwiser out there.

Give a LOT away to family/friends/neighbors.

And drink a lot, that too.

I only do 2.5-3 gallons at a time which ends up being roughly only a case bottled. I also share some it.

You don't have to drink a lot to keep a lot of varieties on hand. In fact, it's easy to keep more kinds of beer around if you are not an alcoholic.

You hit the head on the nail with this one... If someone has a large variety they CAN'T be an alcholic... Its the guy who brews with no beer in the house to worry about.haha

Good to hear that most people are balanced

I do share a lot as well, but for the most part most are not 'adventurous' when it comes to beer. They want the generic store bought lagers, and think that's what beer is supposed to taste like.

I'm slowly converting them!

Alcoholism is defined by the consequences. If there are severe repercussions from your beer drinking, yet you still do it, you are an alcoholic. This could be anything from not showing up to work frequently due to hangovers, to spending all your money on beer, to getting fat or destroying your liver. In other words, you need to have your priorities straight. That said, if you (and friends/family) can stay happy and healthy drinking a sixer of lagunitas IPA for breakfast every morning, you are not an alcoholic. I guess my point is that you can't easily tell whether someone is an alcoholic or not just by looking at their beer consumption.

I am in high gear competition brewing right now - hence brewing every week. My roommates and friends will drink about 3/4 of it. We have football parties most every week.
