So Hounds, How many Beers?

was just doing some self-refleting, and was wondering how many beers/drinks does everyone consume over the course of an evening of dinner and so on? Me I seems to be on the "alot" side of things yikes

  1. Depends if my wife is counting or not.

      Get a one liter mass krug.

      "Honey, I'm not drunk, I only had two beers."

        LOL, I tried that last Saturday. I had 2 Belgian seasonals at 8 oz each and then came back with a liter sized Pilsner. It's only my 3rd I said.

        1. re: JAB

          This is of course all relative as to whether I'll be out and driving or drinking at home where there is no limit.

    2. I have three levels:
      1) Daily - 1-2 beers after work
      2) Going out - 3-6 drinks watching a game with buds or out to dinner with wife
      3) Getting hammered - 3-6 drinks with whisky and shots, typically after a huge win by Phils or Eagles or after an argument with the aforementioned wife.

      1. I avgerage about 3 beers a day. Sometimes less, sometimes more, and sometimes none.

          When i'm drinking more than 6 I can "avgerage" up to 12...........typically Torpedo's these days ..........when i head past 12 things can get dicey/ murky............mass consumption these days must be done with a quality beer like any SN............in the past,mass consumption of a non micro has led to head splitting hangovers.......in my youth.
          Also i have found that some days the brews just don't go down like ....i'm into it......other days they seem to really flow.........as I've mentioned in other threads.....good quality micro's , particularly SN's (in my opinion) do not leave me hurting the morning after.......

            I think Saddleoflamb and I need to go out drinking.

        2. Similar to Chinon, but I only use his level one and level two. Mine likes her beer as well so our arguments center around who drank the last Porter, Stout or Belgian Sour in the fridge.

          1. It depends, anything 'Big', Troegs Mad Elf, Founders KBS, Dogfish 120....only 2 maybe 3. 'Regular' beers (up to 7 or 8%) I can do a good 5 or 6, the really rare nights may see 7 or 8...but those are few and far between now that I've 'grown up'
