Me tooo...

Based on experience it appears many of us HB'ers also like to limit our consumption during the brew session. I generally won't pour a beer until the wort is chilling.

I always pour one at the beginning of a brew session, but I'm pretty busy on brew day. A lot of times I won't finish that pint until after pitching, 4-5 hours later.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I always have a pint or two during the brew session.  Hard to relax and not worry without one  ;D

I'm with you. I absolutely refuse to pop a top until I finish my coffee and start thinking about setting up for the day.

I usually start my brewday around 6am, so coffee is the beverage of choice.  I will often crack a beer somewhere during the boil. 

As far as work goes, I think we should be able to have a beer at lunch, but there are always idiots that ruin it for the rest of us.

I usually start during the "coffee hours".

I have several friends that are on the wagon.  A silly rule that I impose upon myself is to remain dry between the time I awaken and noon.  So I generally crack one open at 12:00:01.
