    Me too. I still drink beer socially, but that's now more on the order of a bottle over couple of months.

    I've replaced it with Chocolate as my vice

    My Dad and I homebrew together and to be honest, beer doesn't even bother me a little bit. I'm in college, so I'm young and probably consume beer more often and in larger amounts than most of you do. Maybe my body is used to it? By college standards, I'm tame though. Usually two or three quality brews. If I actually want to get drunk I then switch to a drink that rhymes with frisky. I haven't had a drop of either since the beginning of May and feel no better or worse.

    So to actually answer the OP: no I haven't given it up and no I don't plan to.

    IMO college is an absolute horrible time to even consider giving up booze. However, if your drinking the swill I did as a college fella then that is not actually beer....it is piss with alcohol added for flavor (Pabst, The Beast, Natty, and a couple others).

    Mostly wine and vodka now, but I still down a frothy pitcher or two every now and then. Beer gives me such a happy drunk...

    Giving up beer is like.. giving up the main glue of our brotherhood.

    Haven't, and probably never will. I cut back severely though. I'll have one or two nights a month where I have a couple...enough to feel good, and that's it. I also don't ever drink anything other than Guinness.

    I only drink Guinness and red wine now. And way less Guinness than I used to. According to my food diary I am drinking about half a pint a day but that's maybe 3 pints on a Sunday lunchtime skewing the week. At 30g carbs a pint I find it best avoided. Red wine is a far better proposition.

    Gave up beer and brewing beer about 3 months into paleo, I'm better without it but it really is my drink of choice. Spent most of last summer really drunk because I'm not used to drinking wine (or being low carb). I was recently in Portland/Seattle so went to Hopworks and Pikes and enjoyed the beer, will keep it for brewery crawling, high end, good stuff only.
