How many of you out there drink Home Brewed Beer only? I love home brewed beer, but wouldn't it be a commitment to drink solely what your hands produce.

With so many good craft beers out there, how many of you stand by your commitment to drink only what you (or another home brewer) have taken the time to make by hand?

Nope. You said it, too many other great beers out there. I gotta research, ya know.

And even though I usually have multiple styles on hand, sometimes I dont. And sometimes it's all weird stuff.

I drink my homebrew almost exclusively when I have a bunch on hand. I will get some craft brews when my pipeline gets low. I didn't brew much mid summer when it was too hot. There are so many recipes that I want to do that, if I brew often enough, I have no need to buy anything.

I would like to get to the point, that home brewed is all I consume. I am not there yet. but give me time. I need more refrigerator room for a keg system. (future project).

I am pretty much on homebrew unless it is a special occasion. if I run out of homebrew I generally don't drink untill more is made
The way I see it, craft beers cost too much to buy just for everyday beer and is reserved for those special occasions (it's $10+ per 500ml here), and cheap beer actually costs more to buy than it does to make my homebrew ($15 for a dozen BMC type beers on special vs. $20-25 per 15 litre batch ~ $7 per dozen homebrews)

I'm almost pretty much drinking only homebrew too. No matter how much I have on hand, I find myself stopping occasionally at the local candy shop to grab a bomber of something special.

Yeah I don't think I would ever go 100% homebrew - what would you do at a bar, sneak homebrew in and get you hit in the toilets
They have just installed a "growler filler" out my local liqour store - basically it sounds like you can take you bottle (growler, 500ml swingtop, etc) and fill it with a selection of craft beers for much cheaper than buying the pre packaged (about 1/2 the price I think).

I drink mostly homebrew at home, but I like sampling other things when I am at restaurants. Last night I tried 3 Oktoberfests in a flight, plus 3 IPAs. Was pretty awesome.

I do pick up the individual bottles at Trader Joe's, as I can try several options and reuse the bottles.

I drink homebrew 99% of the time. Biggest reason is cost. I can brew 10 gallons for roughly 40 dollars or buy roughly 4 six packs. Going out is even worse....5-7 bucks per beer!! I still have commercial beers that I received for Christmas sitting in my fridge that I am slowly working my way through. Homebrewing can be expensive enough without tacking on buying commercial beer.
