I will never buy a sixer again...ohmmm....will buy a pint on draft...but no bottled ever again....ohmmmm.....with the occasional "not on draft anywhere" bottle or so...oh ok...occasional sixerI am so happy and committed to my pipeline.

Best right now has to be a black and blacker mix of my dark side stout and my pumpkin seed porter.

That's what I keep saying to myself, but I can never settle for a limited selection. I have a DIPA? I want a different DIPA. I have a stout? Well, I want another kind of stout.

I have yet to feel any real draw to purchasing any commercial beer since I've been brewing my own. I'm perfectly happy with having three brews on tap at all times. Gives me a good selection to work with. I am looking forward to having my mocha porter on tap soon.

IIPA, Dark as HELL stout, PS Porter on tap. Pale ale fermenting away.

Only laziness would let me go down to 2 again.

Tennessee's wine/liquor/beer laws suck.
Unless you are looking for a middle of the road, 5.5%, overpriced IPA, don't even bother going to the store.
That's the primary reason I started homebrewing.

I have found that if I keep at least one fermenter going at all times that I never run out of pipeline. The hard part is finding the time to brew!

I thought that would be the case, but I still buy craft brew... possibly more now than before though I try to limit my beer purchases to while on work travel (per diem isn't just for food ). Mainly I like to try beers before I make something in that style... lately for me it's been sours.

I totally commend you on your pipeline, though!! Mine fully supports a beer or two a day now, so I don't "need" to buy beer at home.

Aye, I live about 80 miles west of Knoxville. Here all craftbrew is $9-10 per six pack minimum. Hell, Guinness is $10 for a sixer. Rasputin RIS is about $13 for a 4 pack.

I know it's a dangerous conceit to get into homebrewing to save money but with the prices around where I live I might actually make it.
