    Probably $100 per YEAR on me, provided I'm not pregnant.

    Hubby probably goes through a carton of beer ($40) every fortnight, or just under.

    Default How much per week do you spend on alcohol?

    We probably spend $200 a year. That's on grog that we take on camping trips. We don't drink any other time unless we open a bottle of wine we've been given (we are teachers so have a cupboard full from the past few Christmases). That might happen once a term.

    Not big drinkers here clearly.

    Probably $10 a week on wine for me and $10 a week on grain, yeast and hops for DH - he has a serious microbrewery setup at home and brews all his own beer ($10 in supplies makes about 1 carton of premium beer so it's much much cheaper!).

    You also have a home brewer lol.

    Keg or bottles?

    We have a keg system with a fridge and taps.

    We have young children but would spend $30-50 a week? Sometimes more sometimes less.

    DH has just started drinking ultra light beers which are only 0.2 standard drinks each and $25 a carton. A carton usually lasts a week. Previously he would drink drink midis after switching from full strength about a year ago due to health reasons. No matter the drink he'll go through a carton a week/fortnight. I'll go through a bottle of wine a week or 4 pack ciders

    Yeah he started about 2-3 years ago and basically hasn't bought beer since! He started with the basic kit brewing with bottles then a year ago we got him a grainfather microbrewery for his 40th! At the same time upgraded to a keg fridge with taps too. I say 'we' but I don't drink beer, it all tastes the same to me 😂

    I love wine. I like a small glass (would be less than a standard drink) at night. Probably 5 nights a week. One bottle a week or so. DH has occasional beers. I'll buy 6 Heineken and they'll last over a month for him!
    Probably $10-$20 a week.

    Hmmm about... $75 per week (1 carton of beer = $45 and 2-3bottles of wine!) Now that I have to type it out, it seems a bit much... I try to stick to having a drink Fri - Sunday only...

    Hahaha me too!

    This sounds a lot like DH. He has made his own little set up. He is about to upgrade his fermenter (finally) to some metal one.

    He uses a beer program thing (maybe called Beersmith?) with his precious books.

    Pretty much we bring/have a keg made for every special occasion lol.
