You know you're a true homebrewer when the style of bottle affects your decision on which beer to buy, hahaha. I love Stone but I find myself buying their beer less and less now because it's a PITA to reuse their bottles.

I still buy beer pretty regularly, just not in large quantities at any one time. There are too many good beers in this world to drink only mine.

I love Sierra Necessary beer too, not just the bottles. I'm not crazy. Thanks for calling me a true homebrewer. After 29 batches I feel like it.

I get disappointed too often when buying craft brew, so I don't bother much any more. If my pipeline gets bust, then I'll buy some BMC and bitch about it. At least it's not costing me a fortune. Much of the craft brew is over hyped and over priced IMO

Yup. Just bought a 4 pack of DogFish Head 90, and a sixer of Sierra Nevada Kelerwiess yesterday. $26 bucks.
I am running low on homebrew.

I still do, but once I am able to get my kegging going it will slow way down. I like how many commercial craft beers taste, but would not want 5 gal of it so I by a 6er.

I still buy lots of commercial beers. I love Hop Czar IPA, so I always have that on hand. I am building a pipeline too, so i need the bottles. I also usually keep a case of Coors light on hand for when friends come over, drinking games, etc.
