We're slowly getting away from commercial, but this time of year has always been my favorite for craft beers so we've bought more than we planned. Too many good holiday brews out there to try this year...Once the holidays are over, its back to homebrew only.
Primary: Innkeeper
Secondary: Dawson's Kriek, Wee Heavy
Bottled: Spiced Holiday Ale,
Drinking: Moose Drool Clone, Irish Red, Oaked Whiskey Vanilla Porter, Milk Stout, NB Innkeeper Kit (West Yorkshire), NB Mild Ale (West Yorkshire), American Wheat
Planning: Irish Red, Patersbier,

Depends on how many commercials are played.

I will buy a case every couple of months if my pipeline gets out of whack...which it is right now. But I usually get an Arrogant Bastard Bomber every other weekend, or something else that is fun if it catches my eye - most recently it was the Sam Adam's Double Voyage. I'd say probably 90% of the beer I drink is made on my property - unless it's one of my friend's beers.

Very rarely do I purchase alcohol since I started brewing. I will go to Keg n' Bottle or one of the other places that have craft/micro on occasion though and grab a six pack for comparison purposes.
