I'm a recovering beer hoarder. I'm getting much better though. I used to buy beer by the case at Costco and drink a few and have a most of the case left sitting there taking up space. I still have about 2 cases of beer that's at least 3 years old out in the shop. I think I'm passed that now. If I want a commercial beer, I'll get either a big bottle or a six pack, 12 pack if I really like it. A couple months ago I saw Red Chair at Costco (in cases, of course), I love the stuff. I went to another store and bought a 12 pack. I think I still have a few left, but they'll get drank.
I guess I've finally figured out that my fridge space is valuable. More of theirs means less of mine. I try to have a variety of homebrew for guests (and me) on tap.
When we go out, if there isn't a beer of interest to me it's JD or just water as I not a pop drinker.
