When I saw Double Dead Guy on the shelf I had to buy a bottle even though I have 15gals of homebrew at home.

Mostly, the beer i make is for home consumption. I rarely bring any with me when i go out mostly because i dont want to lug a growler or two around and that i'll have nothing to drink when i get home!

I'm fond of grabbing a 4 pack of Heady Topper wherever i go.

I think homebrewers are probably the largest consumers of commercial craft beer. I know I still buy plenty of beer just because I want to try it.

Not sure about that but I have a few buddies that brew now and they really only drink what they make. Unless you offer them something ells.

I call it "research". There are some great beers out there, why not try them and then try to replicate?

I still buy beer often. I like what I make, but im not the only brewer in the world that makes delicious beer. I want to try them all! I feel like only drinking your own homebrew is ridiculous. I understand the money saving part, but there are too many great brews out there to limit it to your house IPA, cream ale (which are boring bu nture to begin with), stout, and ESB. Get out and live!

I pretty much only drink homebrew at home, but since I don't like to bottle I will pick up a 12 pack when I go to a buddies house.
Other than that I only buy beer if I'm at a bar.

The last store bought beer I brought home was a couple months ago. I made a clone and wanted to compare.
I split one bottle with a buddy, then we drank what I made. I still have 5 from that 6 pack sitting there.

I started to brew because crappy beer is expensive.
Decent beer, doubly so.
None of that has changed, so I still don't buy much beer.
Fortunately, I'm a member of a homebrew club so I can still taste a wide range of beer styles and types for pretty much free.
I can say that most of the members though have taken to buying more beer as a result of their brewing.

I enjoy the variety of great beers so yes, I buy commercial craft beers often. Makes going to grocery store much more enjoyable!
