How much commercially produced beer do you still buy as an avid homebrewer?

Just as much as I always did, guess how many fridges I have?
6 (6.5%)
No more cases!  Only 6 packs and bombers for this guy!
25 (26.9%)
I'm down to single 12 and 22oz bottles, some old and some new!
17 (18.3%)
Only very rarely, and only known favorites or stuff I can't make myself.
17 (18.3%)
Why buy what I can make myself?
7 (7.5%)
It's variable, man.

At home.... none. Only my own. Now, since I spend half my life on the road, I do buy beer commercially, of course. It doubles as research for the home brewing.

I don't count, but . . .


10-12 6-packs roughly every other week.

The standard reply when SWMBO asks "How many have you had?"

"I don't count them, I just drink them!"

I still buy sixers now and then and dirty 30's of PBR in the summer.  Most of my money is spent going out to bars though.  I definitely buy less beer from stores than I used to, but my consumption at bars hasn't really diminished.

+1.  The new case packaging of PBR tall boys is a winner, IMO.

The more I think about it, lately most of the 'commercial' beer I buy is purchased/consumed at bars. 


This is where most of my beer purchases happen.

I maybe buy a 6 pack once every 2-3 months, I am more apt to buy the more obscure small batch singles, as well as certain belgian imports.
