I average about 2 a night during the week. I'll have one with dinner around 5:30 and another once my son goes to sleep around 8. I usually never catch a buzz during the week. On the weekend I may drink up to 4 a day, but usually not more than that.
Drink what you like and share when you can. Support your local breweries.

Sooooo.........If I drink 30 on fri/sat nite and maybe a couple on wed. My per/nite average would be like almost a sixer. I kinda like the sound of that. I think i'll go look at my carboy and have a beer.

depends who you ask,
the brewer makes the beer, not the equipment
let the beer tell you when it is finished

Hmmm that's funny, I do the opposite. Check FG but not usually OG.

I drink 8-12 5-8% beers strictly every other night.

My issue isn't with how much alochol I'm getting but how may calories. If I do more than have 4-8 on the weekends total I lose the battle of the bulge. Currently have 2 beers fermenting and nothing in the keg so will be taking a break for a couple of weeks since I've got a 1/2 marathon coming up and the less weight up the hills the better.

I drink 1-2 a night during the week. The weekends I tend to drink more. I wake up on the weekends and would love to have a homebrew for breakfast. It is so tempting. I fight the urge though and hold of until noon (most of the time).

3 - 5 12 oz, either craft, Homebrew or the occasional BMC ( gotta get bottles from somewhere, right ?) on a week/ work night. ( As I post on the third Grolsch of the night as a matter of fact.....)

Friday night, Saturday, Sunday? Hell, who knows? So long as I don't run out, I ain't counting bottles.....

( And yes, serious post, not jokes )
