    Usually 2-3 times a week.
    It is entirely dependent on how much I drink, but I never run out.

    Once a week. Usually a variety 12 pack or a couple mix 6 packs. Bomber here....bomber there.

    Once or twice a week, depending on release dates. I have lots of beer in the cellar, so mostly looking to pick up another edition to a vertical or limited release.

    I probably hit various bottleshops by me about 4 times a week, I buy maybe 2 of them. Whenever I visit a town I try to hit their best shop(s) to see what is available, can find some nice gems. Scored some Grit and Grace while in Natchitoches La this weekend, along with one of their Collaboration series, Nice job Great Raft. Also that liquor store will sell singles, so I grabbed a Guinness IPA, thank goodness I wasn't in it for a six pack.

    I buy beer (to drink on premises) at least once a week at a local taproom that brews their own. I usually only have about 10 bottles max in my refer (unless it's imp stout then I have more aging). I bought a 6er today. The beer prices in the supermarket are getting scary.
    $9.69 for a 6er of Leinenkugals... GTFO!

    Usually once a week for a couple of six packs unless I take in a large haul, such as my recent visit to Jungle Jim's where I picked up 13 six packs and 3 four packs.

    Store Runs: 99% of the time, once a week.
    Weekly Date Night: cpl beers
    Growler Runs: pretty infrequent, once a week tops on a "cheap fill day"

    Way too often. On a good release week, 3-4 times (buying small quantities) but usually 1-2 times a week. It is starting to add up so I'm trying to cut back...or not.

    I usually buy a few bottles a month, nothing extreme. Just enough to keep some variety and allow for quick turnover so things don't get old.

    I try to keep my home inventory light because my home-brewing fills the fridge up... That and we usually go out to breweries or taprooms to get our drink on.

    As of recently its been a lot more. Thanks to my job promotion. But I really need to sort out a budget, and find a few good sixers that are relatively cheap.

    3-4x a week...I know when my favorite stores get their deliveries so I'm usually always there for that besides my normal runs..

    I tend to stock up with bigger runs, so usually once every couple of months.

    I should for what I cook everyday, so I typically with pick up a few singles daily to drink at night. Drives the GF nut's but oh well.

    1-2 times per week, mostly small buys. Unless I am traveling, in which case I stock up on things I cannot get at home and all bets are off on frequency.

    I'm trying to buy beer no more than once a week, but I'm failing miserably so far.

    It varies wildly. Some weeks I might go every day. Other times I'll make a beer run and load up. But even after that if I see something I want I might go right back out a few days later.

    Once or twice a week. Once if nothing new came out, more if there are special releases or something new arrived at LCBO

    1-2 times a week, I can admit that I like buying beer more than I like drinking it and I really like drinking it!

    Once a week unless I accidentally stop while out driving in the delivery truck while on "lunch break" and mistakenly walk into a liquor store, and oddly enough end up with a few bottles behind the seat of the delivery truck.

    Almost every day. And I homebrew. Sometimes I drink just to make room.
