Do you keep it for special occasions or are you a daily drinker?

I am a semi-frequent drinker myself allowing myself a pint on at least 5-6 nights a week.

Lately I've been putting a 12'r of home brew in the fridge for the following weekend. Except when I might need a lil rhumatiz medicine.

When I was younger beer was something I really only drank when going out, at a BBQ or something like that.

Now I tend to have a beer most days but usually only one or two.

More of a weekend drinker myself. Weeknights I hit the gym and a beer would just dehydrate my body further.

I think the answer is "Yes!" or maybe H311-YA!

I don't drink much so I would consider it an occcasional thing.
Some brews I save for special occasions and others I may have a few here and there.

Depends on the beer. If it is hard to get/make or pricey then it becomes a special treat. If it is easy to find/make and pretty cheap then it is just a common drink. I would never try to make DFH 120 my daily beverage of choice but I do drink beers almost every day.

No way dude. Are you not drinking any water throughout the day? I drink water all day, ride my bike both ways to work, sweat plenty, I'm never dehydrated. I think a beer or two feels GREAT after a longer bike ride. You earned it.

Aside from that, I drink everyday. Would like to cut back to 1 or 2 pints a night during the week instead of 3. And cut back to maybe 4 pints on the weekends. So I'd like to think of it as a treat, but a daily treat. It's not good to over indulge.

Almost wish my beers were ready now! Forgot to give the tow guy the damn car key,tow guy didn't check,they said the'd have a driver stop by IF they're in the area,got no friends,no family anywhere near here,no other car...SONOFABIIIIIII***!!!!! Life sucks when you make a dumb once in a blue moon mistake & can't do anything about it. And then the beer ain't ready yet,just about out of vodka too...They can't start on the car without keys...Damnit,I suck out loud sometimes.

Every night, usually not more than one or two pints. The way I see it, if I'm not drinking beer at night, I'm not learning anything. If I can't remember the beer I drank, I drank too much.
