    Pretty much we bring/have a keg made for every special occasion lol.
    Same! If there's a function coming up he will make something special and take the whole kit and kaboodle!
    He brews every 2 weeks and it takes 4-5hrs 💤💤💤 in our family room there is a special brewing fridge which holds the fermenters to keep them at the right temperature and the keg fridge and the microbrewery 😳 I think I am a very supportive wife lol. At least it is so much cheaper than buying beer I guess! He also likes it as he knows everything that goes into his beer all natural grain no preservatives. It's quite self sufficient really 😀 If your DH is on Facebook there is a grainfather microbrewery page he should get onto!

    I get a Dan Murphy delivery of six wines probably once a fortnight which is around $60-$100 depending on what I get. Then we will usually have gin and rum on hand too, but don't drink that as often- might buy a bottle of each a few times a year. Every now and then DP will buy a 6 pack of beer or cider as well. So I would say roughly $50 a week.

    Nothing. Maybe a bottle of wine or some beer at Christmas/New Year but in general we just don't really drink.

    Default How much per week do you spend on alcohol?

    Sorry, DS thought he'd add to the thread!

    zero for me. If my dh feels like a bourbon he will buy a pre mixed bottle when we are out, or he will take something like that to a party. I don't drink, I have had one or two glasses of champers, in my lifetime. Marie.

    Up to $50 a week. Depends if we're drinking ciders / wine / spirits or a combination of all three. I usually have 1-2 drinks per night and df would have 2-3 so it adds up.

    I just went through our bank statements and we are averaging $50 per week on alcohol (from the bottle shop, so this is not alcohol purchased when out).

    I am shocked to be honest, that is over 2.5k per year!
    A week? Nothing.
    We buy it every few months- the same things and about $200.

    Now DS is in bed I can respond. We spend very little on alcohol. About once a year we buy a bottle of plum brandy that is for special occasions (DP is Serbian and this is tradition). We don't purchase wine for gifts etc as we have quite a decent wine collection and we select from that. (Regifting 😱). We only eat at restaurants every few months and DP might have 2 beers on that occasion. Guess we are a pretty dry household!

    Not a lot. We generally get a carton of beer for DH and a six pack of cider for me, and that would last us around 2-3 weeks. DH also drinks scotch every now and then, but he rarely ever buys it, he is often given a bottle as a Christmas or birthday gift.
