1-2 a night, except if I'm having 1-2 whiskeys or wines. Always one night a week where I'm alcohol free. If it's a big Belgian or something, I treat it as dessert and don't eat cake or ice cream as well.

I usually have 3 a night after work. (in the 6.5% abv range)

>4, and I have a hangover the next day.

<3, and I feel like I'm wasting beer because I don't feel any of the effects.

Weekends are sketchy for me. I usually have around 4 or 5 on a saturday, but I can space them out farther. Helps with the hangovers.

I love kegging- but there are no dead soldiers around so you can count your empties. I switched to a small glass (involuntarily I might add), so it's easy to refill a small glass more than once.

It's probably "too much" beer. But I'm extraordinarily healthy, fit, and active. So I don't care!
Kegging will totally screw your count up, but you can tell SWMBO you have only had a "few", and not really be lying (imperial pints rock)

I was drinking 2-3 a night but my metabolism is slowing down and I'm getting fat, even though I do a lot of physical work at work and haven't really changed my diet. I'm trying to keep it to one a night unless I have a friend over or I'm out, but I kinda like getting a little buzzed by myself. This is also helping me keep my pipeline a little fuller.

I drink 12-15 a week and sometimes a few more if I have friends over during the weekend. When I was a BMC drinker I was a 30 and a half pack a week, since I started brewing I have cut back. I guess since its better beer I don't need to drink as much.

I average 5 or 6 a week. I use 8oz, 12oz, 16oz, 20oz and 22oz bottles so those could be anywhere in there.
At the monthly club meeting I usually splurge and drink the equivalent of 3 or so.

1-2 pints on 2-3 days during the week. 1-3 on the weekend. Drink plenty of water.

I usually work from home and am off by 3pm in an open (one room) industrial loft. My kegerator sings to me like a siren.

I'm going to go have one now.
