    If I'm having a beer flight or at a tasting, I'll use the same principle as wine tasting. Light to heavy. But honestly, I tend to drink seasonally. I crave hoppier beers in the summer and heavier stouts or porters in the winter.

    I rarely the same one all night long unless inventories can handle it; it's all about variation around here. The general rule is start with a IPA hop-monster, then try something new or something I have few examples of or something less liked, and then, if the try was a bust, flip back to an IPA for a corrective dose of a quality brew. ABV is not really a concern.

    I'll only ever have three in a day, tops, but not dictated by ABV either (allows for minor cheating). My simple rule is this: Always, usually, sometimes, never! Always one, usually two, sometimes three and never four! No exceptions.
