    One or two really good ones at home. If we go out, I drink one, two if it is a good draft. An old English taxi driver told me he drank a Guinness every night and that was it. He was driving me from a pub in Banbury to one on the Oxford Road near the Cotswolds. He was 83. Something to be said for one a night.

    Well, lets see...Monday through Wednesday I worked my way through a sixer of Lil'Sumpin...and I stopped by RR for a Pliny after work on Thursday. Friday night I had 2 bombers of Enjoy By 420, and tonight I'm really loving a super fresh bomber of Hop Stoopid I picked up in Petaluma. So that's, what, 4 beers? So yeah, I have about four beers a week.

    Damn this is tough. To the guy who said 50, props to you man, that is impressive if we're talking real beer and not Bud Lights. I probably average close to 20 over the week which I do feel is too much, but hey, I love beer and it makes me happy.

    I guess a typical week would be 10 or so.

    I could probably easily go much higher than that, but drinking good beer tends to be a bit rough on the ol' wallet.

    Somewhere between 4 and 10 in a typical week. More during A-Typical weeks, like holidays or other celebrations... hoping for more A-Typical weeks.

    For me personally it's usually between 10 and 14, and rarely more than 2 a night, unless I'm with friends or it's a weekend where I don't have to be up early the next day.

    about 13/14 good beers a week. Sometimes more but only rarely. However, if I go out and there's only crappy beer on tap I resort to Rum usually, which never ends well as you can imagine!

    probably average in the 20 range of 12 oz servings lately, but I'm getting fat (interpret as got fat but having trouble accepting it) so that needs to change.

    Usually around 15-20. I never really binge, but whenever I'm sitting at home watching TV I tend to have a beer or two.

    I find that my beer consumption is directly related to the amount of overtime that I work. If that logic applies to others, you guys must work alot of OT! :grinning: All kidding aside, 6-12. Usually no more than 2-3 at a time.

    I'm doing this for myself. I just want to keep an eye out for my alcohol consumption. I find that I want a beer every day. I can go for multiple days without one, and I'm "happy" to do it, meaning I don't get the shakes or become irritable, but the only times I do this are the times I "have" to do it, like if I'm at my parents. When I drink, I'm fine sticking to just 1-2 beers. They aren't strong beers either. I'm a noob homebrewer, so I'm beginning to drink my own beer now and buying a little less at the store. I don't care for getting drunk, but drinking just 1 sometimes can get a buzz going. If I'm out with friends who don't drink as much as I do, if they even drink at all, I still want some, and get it. I know I'm driven home DUI, but never found myself driving off the road or into another lane, nor do I drive excessively slowly. I've been in a car with people do that - driving 45mph in a 55-60. You have to tell them to speed up. The driving part is what bothers me the most. I have a home breathalyzer but haven gotten out of the habit of keeping it in the car.

    I have one beer every day when I get home from work. Always have. And then comes the weekend.

    I drink one or two per night, trying to stay below 120 ABV-oz. I'll take a day or two off before and/or after any day I know I'll be drinking a lot (e.g. wedding)

    In a week where I'm home all the time, about a dozen 12oz (Thur-Sun, 3 a night, Don't work Fridays) However, I've been doing a fair bit of traveling the past 6 months, N&S Dakota, Minnesota, Florida, Tennessee, and that's where the trouble starts. Every day is off work, and I'm on vacation. No limits! Wife unamused. How soon she forgets I give up the ale for Lent.

    I average between 15 and 21 (5-7 three times a week).
    With a couple bourbons sipped alongside.
    Perhaps a fattie.

    I've been on a small bender for a bit, so I would say... 45-55? 6-8 an evening with an occasional afternoon couple, 6 or 7 days a week. My usual routine is 6-8 with an occasional afternoon couple, 4 or 5 days a week. :grimacing:

    I generally have at least a 12 pack and a bomber or two over a week at home, if not more. At bars, it depends on whether I've driven or not. I do share a lot of my beers I open at home though.

    Generally around 15-20 a week here too. It depends on work and Uni to be honest. And if friends are around. I'm happy if the standard drinks are under 25.

    Usually five per week, I like to keep things slow, leading to even more enjoyment when I finally decide to have a beer (usually drinking days are thursday to saturday for me). That being said, I like to convice other people of smaller breweries and therefore share a lot, which rises up the beer amount slightly.
