I have the problem that I cant drink as much as I brew, so I enlist the help of my friends. I have a beer a night and maybe 6-10 over the whole weekend.

My consumption varies a lot. It depends on the day, my mood, and what I'm doing on any given day. Some weeks, I'll drink 2-3 beers multiple nights a week. Some weeks, I'll have 1 beer all week.

That is how I see it and I am sticking to it!!
Agree. My beers are usually in the 5.5-7.4% range so 2 of those guys about the same as 3+ BMC light beers? Good Trade!

Well, you are a Fetus, so you shouldn't even be drinking!

I have no idea how much alcohol is in any of my beer. I check OG to see how my mash went, and I typically target the 1.050 to 1.055 range, but I don't ever check FG.

1 bomber a night is typical for me, sometimes two if I'm sharing. I know that some people think it's a lot, but we, as North Americans, are programmed to think that daily alcohol consumption is always alcoholism, while we encourage binge drinking at special events or in bars.

I hardly ever get buzzed (or, let alone, trashed) and instead savour every sip. Way healthier than banging 8 beers night every Saturday while dancing to crap music in douchy bars.

1 beer with dinner and a couple other beers throughout the work evening. Usually no more than 3 in one night. Every couple of weekends will have one night of pretty severe intoxication and there's no telling how many are consumed then.

I probably have only 2-4 beers a week. I prefer a cocktail before dinner and have a beer with dinner only with certain (generally spicy) foods. A homebrew batch usually lasts me about 5 months but I enjoy the process and enjoy the compliments I get on the ones I give away.
