I love my home brew but still buy beer. I like Bud to, I'm a big fan of the Diamond Knot IPA's that is made locally. Yesterday I bought 6-22 oncers of it, Saving the bottles, a 6 pack of Steelhead Double IPA and some of that Dog Fish head Pumpkin. I've been wanting to try that pumpkin stuff.

So what do you buy and like out side your Home Brewing

What do I like that's not homebrew? It's a long list. How much time do you have?

Everything I don't have on tap or in bottles at any given time. I probably buy more beer now that I brew. I'm always trying something new. Plus, sometimes I just want something I don't have.

I've got 4 full kegs + about 150 bottles of home brew sitting in my basement and somehow I managed to accidently spend $70 at the local beer store...

The only beer I've actually bought in the past number of weeks has been a case of PBR, 4 pack of La Fin Du Monde, and a 750 of Tank 7. I've been pretty happy with what homebrew I've got in stock, so my trips to the beer store have gone down drastically.

Going out on a limb here, got to say my favorite beer is still Carlsberg. But mostly I support craft breweries for superior flavour and beer more often than not. But every now and then, I'll still get a hankering, get some Carlsberg and watch some footie.
