I brew mostly in the summer. The weather here is too NICE to brew the rest of the year. Instead I mountain bike, hike, and do things outside this time of year.

I still do about 1 batch every 2 months or so though.

I brew as soon as my water spigot is no longer subject to freeze temps. Living in england this is pretty random.

underground and under the influence

Year round. I either IC or on occasion, "no chill", and I keep my house at 70 degrees pretty much year round. We have a spare room with a closet that I keep my ales in. If I am trying to knock the temps down, I can "garage lager" at around 50* from about December to early March. In the summer, say from June to August, I can't wait to try some funky bretts, saisons and lactic weiss'es in the garage. I think it will be pretty good for that, as it will stay around 80*-90*.

I like to brew when the nights are cool. I'll do 48hrs of brewing and fill all 6 kegs, 8 carboys and one 1/2BBl, then I take a break for the hot days of summer. If the heat breaks, I'll brew a little in summer. One nice thing about living in Chicago is we have good water that is cold all year long.

I brew every time I swap out a keg. Currently I have 14 five gallon kegs cold,12 on tap 2 conditioning + 2 three gallon waiting to travel. In the wings I have 5 sitting ready to go into the keezer with 15 gallons in fermenters in various stages. I consider this my version of Hurricane Prep. My only goal per year is that I never run out of beer, hit the 55gallon mark yesterday!

Now that I have a chest freezer just for lagering, I can now store a bunch of kegs. I probably wont brew in the dead of summer, like July and August...
