Sours...expensive and delicious, also one of the styles I haven't gotten around to brewing yet. I tend to drop a fair amount of coin on limited release IPAs as well.

I donīt know why but it just seems that I canīt enjoy some sours (I like flemish reds and berliner weisse) but I canīt deal with any kind of lambic, been in Brussels a couple of times, tried everything that I could try and still I canīt develope a taste for lambics, these annoys me cause Iīm the kind of guy that basicly likes everything and when I donīt like something I keep trying it until I develope a taste but this has been impossible with sours. Off topic I know but waht the hell!

I really only drink Home Brew..... I guess I should buy craft beer to sample what's trending, but I can't even drink everything that I brew so I find it hard to justify spending money on store bought

I typically buy styles I'm interested in brewing, and other styles I know I probably won't brew because I dislike bottling and don't want anything north of 7.5ish abv on tap - so I'll by big beers as I don't brew many of them. Same goes for the occasional sour beer too.

I must say, I buy substantially less beer than I did before brewing. I, however, do not deny myself something that I see on the shelves! It could be anything really from DFH, Stone, Founders, Six Point, Lagunitas, Schneider's or pretty much anything else that looks interesting!

+1

I only drink non-homebrew about once a month with buddies. Three or four of us split a while bunch of 650ml bottles, that way we can sample a lot at once and figure out what to brew. Other than that, I have to be at a pub to drink anything else.

I drink slowly, so I tend not to have more than 4 different beers on hand ready to drink at any one time. Right now that's a red, an Oktoberfest, a hefe, and a blond ale. If I want anything else, I go grab a few at the store. (Planning a dark Belgian and maybe a Christmas stout as soon as I clear out some bottles...)

Also, some things I don't drink enough of to warrant brewing, like IPAs or royal imperial anythings...

Been there... several times. It's never pretty.

I buy commercial on a pretty consistent basis because even though my pipeline is starting to get back to where it was before I transferred, I still love trying new beers and some of my old favorites from the before times. I just had some DFH 90 last week (first time in a couple years) and that was the second craft beer I ever had.

I wish that DFH was more available out here on the West Cost.
