I'm just curious as to how many beer per night you guys drink?.. I see some of you guys with 4-6-8 taps.. to me that would mean 4-6-8 beer a night at least and that's not the including the weekend!

SWMBO is worried that as soon as I get my fridge and taps set up I'll be downstairs I'll be passed out on the Foosball table everynight.. I told maybe only for the 1st couple of weeks..

what say you?

It varies...sometimes none, sometimes 4 or 5. Depends on the mood I'm in, what I've got going on, what's going on the next day at work, how my kindey is doing...I let my body tell me how much to drink that night.

At least one almost every day... No more than 2.... (maybe 3) .... course there are exceptions

My SWMBO shares this concern about getting the kegging setup, but still she is right there with me. (likes her nightly IPA)

I usually have a couple each night with dinner....maybe one more for "dessert". Never really get "drunk". When I first got the keggerator.....well that was another story. But like everything else... it lost it's 'newness' and you get back to normal....

you have to pull the taps each night so they don't stick

I don't drink a lot during the week. Depending on my mood, I'll have one or two, but typically I just don't. The weekends tend to get really silly for me.

The multiple tap setups aren't necessarily to increase volume, just variety. My intake wouldn't change just because I had the ability to keep more beer cold. I'd still have the occasional weekday beer and a few more during the weekends.

+1 on the multiple taps being for variety I have 4 taps always going and it doesn't increase my intake, most nights I have a pint.
