I gear my beer drinking to the place I am going and what I want to get out of it. Most restaurants have something I like and I will have two beers or if my wife wants to stay there long enough, maybe 3. While it pains me to overpay for beer, we now often invite the group we are with to come over to our house after the meal - it has become the way things go, now - mention homebrewing in conversation at some point in the dinner and many folks will be glad to visit with you at your taproom!
Just be sure to have a lighter ale or lager available to them for their start, but be ready for the occasional experimenter who will want to take a growler of aged, blended Flanders Red home with him....I keep 16 ounce PET bottles handy for that type of thing. It's hard to part with a lot of the good stuff.
