When the wife and I go out we generally drink a couple of beers each. Any town we're in, that has a bar, is at least a 17 mile drive home.
There is a a little pub that has a good selection of craft beers. However, they're about 6 bucks each. We can have the PBR's for under $5 total, go home and drink home brew. I can make 10 gallons of beer for what those 4 craft beers cost. We do go there every once in a while, but you just can't beat a cold, draft, PBR for a buck.
