I think the answer will depend heavily on which forum you ask it.

IMO - Your consumption is no different than mine or my friends...I work out regularly and eat healthy, so I see no problem. (All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy)

I think you have a problem on Monday thru Friday.

Try these folks for the other extreme..

Focus and motivation is what I lose when I drink too much. I don't feel like getting on the trainer. I like to train in the morning and after 3 beers the night before it makes it easier to talk myself out of exercise.
I think we all have different red flags.

I have often asked myself the same question and have come up with a foolproof test that I use every 30~... days.

1, If you burn out your breathalyzer the next morning after brushing your teeth.

2, If you forget your spouses name more than twice a day.

3, If you forget your name more than once a day.

4, If you sleep just as well on your front lawn as you do in your bed.

5, Your spouse won't sleep with you.

6, your dog won't sleep with you

7, If when writing a check you need to ask the cashier “What year is this?”

( And the all-time classic)

8, If you wake up naked in a police cruiser ,,, and you are driving.


Cheers,
Nostrovia,

(burp)

24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day, coincidence?

For the past year or so, I've been having 1-2 a day, sometimes 3. Depends on how much room is needed in the fridge for groceries

Girlfriend has had the conversation with me. To her, 1 a day is "being an alcoholic," which definitely makes this hobby a challenge at times. She hates the smell of brewing, so I can't get her involved, which kills off that idea.

In the end, I feel as though 1-3 a day is acceptable, without it being harmful to my health. I take some days off every other week mainly just to balance out any potential negative effects.

However, I do want to make a note. With the high gravity trend in craft beer, I'm having a hard time enjoying a new beer every day without running into things around 8-10%.

TLDR; 1-3 a day, a week without alcohol every once in a while

I have one a day, maybe two on weekend days.

Of course they're 64oz's each. But seriously folks.

I actually do try to limit to 1-2 per day. I'm trying to keep the weight down, and too much beer over time gives me the gout.

Anyone here ever get the gout? I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

Speaking of the smell of brewing. My wife and a girlfriend of ours says it smells like rabbit food. They're both cool with the brewing hobbies of their husbands. They just think it smells like rabbit food.
