I would say that my Fiance drinks more of it than I do. I probably drink about 15% of it. I'll guestimate that she drinks 25%. The rest of it I give to friends or it gets drank when folks come over.

Hard to guess on this one, but I'll take a stab:
Me 50% Friends 30% Wife 20% Brew Club 0%
10-15 gal/month

99% me, 1% Misc others. Unless it's the Hefeweizen I just made (scored a 36 at the Cascadia Cup Homebrew Competition), then it's a fight! They love that stuff!

Right now: me 90%, friends/family 10%, SWMBO none (she's pregnant).

Brewing anywhere from 0 to 15 gal a month.

On average: Me 90% Others 10% but it varies with the season. We have a lot more company in the summer.

100% me. My wife doesn't drink beer so the 13.5 gallons I have right now will all be consumed by me. Maybe a friend or two will help, so I guess I should revise the figure down to 95%.

100% me at a rate of about 5 gallons per month. Although, I started working out (swim 1500 yards three times a week, raquetball twice a week), so I expect consumption to increase significantly.

If it is my English style Barley Wine 99% me. (Great stuff. Scored 42 at the Cascadia Cup Homebrew Competion. Number one in the flight and went one to the best of show round.) All other beers about 75% me and the rest to friends and family.

There were two points to asking this question
1. How much beer do some of these/you guys drink?? There seems to be continuous brewing.
2. I don't yet have much friend approval for my brews yet(one mate is happy to drink but my good brews never coincide with his visits). I was wondering how many mates approve.

Hmm I wonder what is an acceptable quantity to imbibe in a month - current UK guidance is ~20 units (10 pints of 3.5-4.0% beer) per week I think. If I want to drink a gallon a month, I think 40 pints is about right.
Oh I forgot about all the bottles of wine too. Oh and the brews are seldom under 4%.

This household (Me, my SO, one large macho housemate) goes through *about* a keg every 2 weeks with no parties. However I have seen my housemate and one of his buddies kill a keg in one night!! My last steamer? I had ONE glass of it! He got spanked BIG time (hes scared of me ;-)) My friends really do prefer our beer to commercial, so they bring decent beers or wines to take the pressure off the kegs.

My SO and I typically drink 1-3 drinks per night, more on weekends. We also drink cocktails and wine in that formulation.

I average about 30Gal a month.

I drink 75% of the beer
Friends 20%
SO 5%

Now, I don't drink 25 gal a month (not usually). Of the 30Gal or so a month I would say 30% ends up aging for a good period of time before it ever sees a bottle.
