A beer that someone likes (generally from a brewery other than BMC.)

I still buy beer, cheap or craft depending on the situation. If it's just me and a few people I'll look around for new belgians or Marz styles and try to make a clone of it if I can find a recipe. If there are going to be a lot of people I'll just get keystone/busch since most people in my peer group don't care what they drink or are too used to light beers and don't like the heavy ones I try to brew.

Off topic, but I saw John Lennon's NYC concert last night on TV and he was drinking beer on stage and I am pretty sure it was a can of Miller. Just found that interesting.

I started brewing more often this year to avoid buying anymore overpriced, and pretty bad supermarket beer here in norway.

I have stopped buying generic supermarket beer in the lat 6 months, although I still wander off to the local wine monopoly here in Norway and buy the odd bottle of something special.

Im only now starting to brew more styles of beer, so maybe a year from now Ill not be buying so many from the "pol" either.

I still like all of it. Normally at the store, I am buying either a seasonal micro or good ole PBR, or even bud light lime! Life's too short for me to be too snobby about it. Enjoy all of it!

I am lucky that I live near a Total Wine & More store that has a great selection of craft brew. The prices are pretty solid too! I was walking around and saw a case of SN Pale Ale for $27, thats pretty darn good! The store also sells singles, which is where I usually spend 40 minutes of my visit ooo-ing and ahh-ing I love this hobby and the fact that I can brew 5 gallons for about $20, but I find I am buying a lot more craft brew than before! I was strictly natty light before this hobby! I know, I know...im frugal

Usually when I run out of homebrew I will buy a sixer of something to hold me over, and also get to use the bottles. I still buy my seasonal favorites or beers I have yet to try, even if I do have homebrews in the basement.

Though since I've started homebrewing, I definitely buy less microbrew beer.
