Default Do you only drink what you brew??

I know it's hard for the newbies to answer this question, but do you only drink your own brew? Do you drink any commerical beers? I was at the liquor store today looking to buy a couple ( just a couple) imports and i felt alittle guity. I mean i have a bunch of beer going at different stages, but a few batches available to drink. I was looking to buy a few German beers that i really like.I like the beers that i have ready but....In all honesty. i have two batches that i've been drinking. one i like the other was a shot in the dark and it is just ok.

Am i being unfaithful or what?

Of course I do! I even drink BMC.

There are so many great styles and breweries out there I feel you'd be doing a disservice to yourself not to drink them. Just look at the thread about Sierra's Celebration Ale. It's a wonderful brew that every beer lover should pick up.

Oh, I think you'll find that most of us buy commercial. We appreciate fine beer and recognize that there are commercial brewers out there that make a fine product. I often will buy several different premium brands to enjoy or try for the first time. I think it's important to sample in order to broaden your horizons and come up with ideas for the next brew.

I keep Michelob Ultra in the cooler for when I don't want something heavy...

I buy the beer I could never drink 5 gallons of. And you have to buy the best commercial examples of your upcoming brews...it is research!

Yes, and even some lite. Nothing quite as gay as Mic Ultra , but I do occasionally like a light beer.

We work hard to make our great brews, i was wondering if anybody felt as i do...
I guess i'll keep drinking some others, while i enjoy my homebrew.

Cheers guys...
