along the same lines. I drink probably 80-90% of my own beer, which i vastly prefer. I do, however, go to my local brewery for happy hour most fridays after work.
most times i am disappointed by what I buy, because i inherrently like the way i produce that particular style better. the cigar city you pictured is a good example - I know everyone is gaga over them, but they all too often let me down. I guarantee you, if you hone your craft, you can make a better IPA than Jai alai.
there are also a lot of breweries coming out now that make mediocre beer - beers that i will try to give them a chance, but won't be buying a second time.
i do tend to buy a few things every year - at least one 12 pack of Celebration and a six pack of Bigfoot (I guess 4 pack now) because of nostalgia/tradition for me, and I have much admiration for SN. Everything else is either 1 off stuff that i have a taste for but don't have on tap now, research, or simply i dont' want to make 10 gallons of that style.
