    Being a LNBA (Late Night Beer Advocate) myself I am not sure if such acronyms exist for earlier first to post advocates and or mid-day/afternoon advocates. So I kinda just created place holder names for earlier and mid-day advocates for the poll. So what kind of "WBARDNer" are you and is their a particular acronym for you choice ?

    I always want to have a beer in the afternoon, but often get distracted by other things. I find that most of my brews don't come until usually after 8pm for one reason or another. Weekends are a different story, but I still don't start too early.

    I chose “it depends” which means whenever I can get it in. For much of my life it would have been LNBA but now I’m old(er) and have a wife and toddler and a “straight job” (spent 20 years as a freelance musician in NYC) so 5pm is prime time to get started and if I’m Drinking , by 6 or 7 I mean business. Ideally I am asleep by 10, because it starts all over again around 6am - 7 days a week.

    I have been enjoying posting mid-afternoon when I can and early evening. There is still part of me that miss when the thread was LNBA!

    My afternoons are often when I start, but the East Coast folks are well along the path, so I'm a combo of Afternoon Delight and Early Evening WBAYDNer.

    Plus, let us not sully the memory of the OG, Old School, Bad Ass LNBA, by referring to the things that happen here now with that noble acronym.

    I can totally understand that. I am not at that stage in my life yet but I am sure I would change my answer if I was.

    The current version is indeed a pale imitation.....

    I can't remember the last time I saw a discussion on the best way to make love to ones Chevy Suburban on the current version.

    Kids today are too sheltered.

    I feel we still get some decent bullshit/shitheadary on WBAYDN on the weekends, but LNBA was more fun. I think it helped that people would be entering the thread already drunk when the thread opened:stuck_out_tongue:

    Pinz412 Disciple (336) Nov 20, 2019 Pennsylvania

    That's the other thing with me personally. On the weekend I'm more focused on posting in the NBW thread, and rarely cross post those beers mostly out of laziness. I'm more of a weekday WBAYDN participant. Speaking of, time to make another entry.

    And, I generally only crosspost new brews, especially those I get in BIFs/LIFs/Ninjas. I rarely post my 427th Cedar Dust.

    @Pinz412 and @beertunes bring up a great point. For me personally there are many times I too am too lazy to post and upload an image on WBAYDN. Like right now for example I am drinking celebration ale at 10:53 EST truly living up to the LNBA within me although I didn't post it :scream:

    I start too many of those threads, meaning that I am a late morning/noon WBAYDN user. Usually stop drinking at 3-4pm GMT+1.

    Rarely have a beer in evenings anymore.

    I start browsing the thread around 7am most mornings although when I start drinking varies. Generally I drink sometime between 1pm-10pm although I'm down for whatever... Can't say I've never had a breakfast stout for breakfast

    I miss LNBA. Part of what made it a complete shitshow was the fact the thread would be deleted in the AM. Anything goes at that point. I usually dont start drinking until after 9pm. Gotta get the kids to bed before I can think of unwinding.

    First thing in the morning, after my dogs and chores are tended to...not as early at home as when we’re traveling sans dogs...most mornings, but I do try to take a day or 3 off from drinking each week. Cheers!

    ps. I like “AM Advocate”...sounds classier than “morning beer drinker”, “before noon boozer”, etc. :rolling_eyes::sunglasses:

    I always seem to post mid afternoon now, if I have the chance. I use to have a pretty crazy work schedule, way back when it was actually called LNBA and would definitely be up all night then if I had the chance. Though work and me have changed since then so I'm happy with some afternoon beers, book and music now :slight_smile:

    Afternoon delight for the most part. There's something genuinely satisfying about being to drink while the sun is still out. Cheers.

    AM of course. It's a matter of timing - I'm up hours before Mrs Lizard and have to be quiet, so what better time to have a brewski. Since I reduced my consumption several years ago, I decided to use the AM quiet to write reviews of New (to me) Breakfast Beers and to have my second drink of the day (beer, mixed drink, liquor) in the evening prior to hitting the rack. The rest of the day it's dragging my sorry ass around doing non-drinking stuff.

    I checked "it depends" - because during the week when I am at work until 3 or so, I often crack a brew as soon as I get home and walk the dog etc....then often, another one later in the evening before bed.....on weekends or time off though, I could be popping something in the late morning or anytime during the day......I am an old fart, so I do not stay up late much these days, as I get up at 5 am for work etc....
    Cheers to drinking a brew anytime!

    Mostly "lapsed" for me, so I guess it depends. :wink:

    I used to hang out in the basement where my desktop is so it was better to load the thread and participate. Now I'm mostly upstairs on my phone so it's become less of a thing, sadly enough. :slight_frown:
  25. MistaRyte

    MistaRyte Zealot (566) Jan 14, 2008 Virginia

    During the week when drinking I'll startafter work, usually around 3-330 PM (I start work at appx. 430 AM each day)

    Weekend I'll wait til a few minutes after noon.

    All bets are off if I'm on vacation or out of the country.

    An oddity here with “I don’t care”. Never really got into the thread, but I suppose it would be fun, there’s nothing stopping me from joining the conversation

    Yea, there are also the majority of BAs that just don’t use this thread and it’s not an obligation.

    Keep in mind however that posting just about your beer even once a week, along with what you are up to and share an artist of your choice would certainly make us - namely the WBAYDN community/family happy. There’s always a seat at this bar.

    Yeah, me too, and thanks.

    Now that I think about it, things may be as simple as seeing if #2 Son has a spare laptop that I can use by the couch. Heck, he's the one that made me move upstairs as it is so he owes me :slight_smile:. I'll have to give it a shot.
  30. ChicagoJ

    ChicagoJ Meyvn (1,250) Feb 2, 2015 Illinois

    With the COVID routine of infrequent friend/family gatherings or brewery/pub visits, I typically have two beers each day, one in the early morning and one with a meal later in the day.

    If I'm out with friends/family or visiting a brewery/pub, I'll typically have 2-4 beers on those days, and try to post in the act if conditions allow.

    I save new beers consumed at home to enjoy on weekends, for the weekend NBW/NBS thread. For new beers consumed during the week, I sometimes post a review in WBAYDN.

    I voted LNBA, but it varies. For instance, I like to get my posts in early during the Christmas season, and I'll have the occasional lunch beer. Overall, though, I do most of my drinking at night, and I rarely have liquor or cocktails before 10 p.m. Besides that, I'm not nearly as active on WBAYDN as I used to be. I've cut back quite a bit due to health concerns.

    But don't worry. I'm working on this year's 12 Days of Christmas series as we speak. :wink:

    With a kid, I will have a couple beers here and there after he goes to bed. Have cracked open a beer once or twice before he went to bed, but drank it slowly as to not get a buzz of any kind.

    Total LNBA here, as I don't usually start drinking at home before around 8pm CET and I pretty much only post in WBAYDN when drinking from home.

    I'm retired, so no job requiring my presence. I am usually up for the day at 6am and in bed by 10 pm, and typically have 1-2 beers/day. I am an AM Advocate.
    @DoctorZombies: You're right, Dave. AM Advocate sounds much more genteel than the other choices for drinking in the morning.

    For some reason I'm more of a lurker when it comes to WBAYDN. Glad my presence can be known through the likes for instance. When I'm actually having a beer seems unpredictable. It's several, one or none, early or late. It comes in periods, seems to be partly connected to if I'm having new beers waiting.

    I don't drink much during the work week and I'm usually always catching up on home chores/tasks during the weekend so late afternoon or late night is when i usually participate but since my work and chores constantly intrude on my free time I'll take whatever opportunity presents itself so my personal acronym above is spot on.

    I'd definitely a LNBA (European time...), rarely getting started before 10pm here. I pretty much drink 1-2 a night, every night, but posting on WBAYDN doesn't happen as often as I would like. Unfortunately, I'm quite often still working at that hour and can't be bothered. 2020 has pretty much destroyed my work-life balance...:sob:
