    I usually have anywhere from 2-5 a night, I can never have just one, doesn't seem like enough, but there are probably 1 to 3 nights a week I don't drink every other week or so.

    1-25. Most weeks it is 2-3, but last week I had happy hour with friends, then a couple came over for a beer tasting, and out to dinner on Sunday with a few cold ones.......needed detox after that weekend.

    Classic binge drinker......

    I drink beer, tequila and bourbon every night, almost.
    Then again I don't kiss and tell, so.............................
     
  7. 3-5 most weeks. More some weeks. Less never.

  8. Although I'm trying to cut back, at least a good 15-20 a week. Shameful when I visit the doctor and he asks me how many drinks I have per week
     
  9. Typically 3-4 on average. Just depends if I'm in the mood to drink I'll have that many, if I'm not I won't. I'll also drink more if I'm drinking with other people on a weekend or something. I mean I am 21. But during the week a couple days I'll sit down and have one at night usually.
     
  10. Also usually 3-5...unless I am on vacation..

    Depends on how much money I have. Right now about 5 or 6 a week, but when the beer is flowing, about 10 a week

    no one in this thread likes beer or is a picture of moderation.

    i feel like a useless degenerate. i guess i am. how do you like beer and drink less than 20 per week. will power, discipline i guess. maybe this question should be coupled with "how much red meat do you eat per week?" if you ear a lot of meat and fat i think you're gonna crave beer a little less..... are you guys all MEAT EATERS? cause i don't hardly eat meat...... but darn it - i need another brew....

    maybe this isn't the website for me! if you're not drinking a case of beer a week, why are you here?
     
  23. The average week would probably be 7 - 14, but depending on sports, holidays and going out during the week it can quickly climb higher.

  24. I'll go with will power and discipline. Also, not a ton of money. I was recently called a "flexitarian." I guess it's some exotic, majestic beast that eats meat, but only rarely. And not cause I don't love it.

    If I stopped caring, I could almost entirely subsist on pork belly and Double IPAs, but, as I enjoy riding my bike, having a job, and (mostly) being alive in general, I try to keep the meat to a minimum and beers to a 10-12/week.
     
  25. I'm a weekender,
    anywhere from 6-15 on fri. night and anywhere from 6-15 on Sat.

    Other than that I don't drink much during the week, maybe 1 or 2 sporadically.

    Here lately it's been ONE a week since I'm on a diet. Just over a month ago it was probably closer to a dozen though. Probably be right back up to that number when June hits.

    Hmmmmm...prob around 20ish.
     
  29. 5-10. Some weeks, I'll only have one beer a night for five days. Other weeks (most weeks), I'll have one beer a night for five nights and then 2-3 on the other two.

    i find it hard to belive that only drink a couple beers a week. here we are on BA were the drunks and beer worshipers unite. i love beer and i also love supporting a nice healthy buzz while drinking my ipas
     
  35. Really depends on what's going on for me. I generally work nights and don't like to drink when I get home, so my beer drinking is pretty much only on my days off. I guess I average around 2-4 a week.
     
  36. I wish. If my wallet and course load would allow yes but for now around 25 per week/end

    I would guess about 30 or so but more if I'm tailgating & going to a game, going out, etc.
