Ok - I'll try to make this as much of a variety as possible. . .it's multiple choice (should be if I remember to select the option).

ARG - I KNEW I'd forget to select multiple-choice . . . can a mod fix that? I tried to change it.

LOL

In short, every day I have some hot tea, a lot of water, and some kind of milk (be it almond, coconut, or whole).

Oolong or Green tea at work, a couple of mugs of it. And it must be sweetened, but I use agave. Then water the rest of the day.

I drink almond milk in my protein shakes and in my "recovery drink" (chocolate milk) I was drinking non-homogenized whole milk in both, but I'm not allowed to have lactose right now.

I have a pepsi a couple of times a week. Or more often when I'm feeling sick like I have been today and yesterday. (settles my tummy)

I have wine a couple of times a week too.

I can agree with that one, mainly because I am on probation and am not allowed to drink beer. LOL.

My own urine. Like Patches O'Hoolihan from Dodgeball, I do it "because it's sterile and I like the taste".

I drink a lot of water, and maybe 5 or 6 cans of diet pop a week. Anything else is less frequent than that.

Water every day, tea almost every day, coffee every day (2 cups), soda about 2x a week, homebrew about 2x per week and rarely hard liquor as my stomach just can't take it any more. I have mead about 2x a month but even that's difficult sometimes.

homebrew about 2x per week

I used to homebrew. A lot. My cousin and I brewed about 500 gallons in a year and drank it all. It was crazy as we had 2 closets COMPLETELY full of bottled beer and a HUGE variety of styles, plus we had 12 5-gallon kegs we used. We were drinking 2 kegs, conditioning 2 kegs and filling 2 kegs from the carboys, every week! Our favorite styles were Pineapple Ale, Eisbock, and Kolsch.

What are you into?

Pinapple sounds interesting - got the recipe and willing to share by chance?

My and my nephew are hop heads - I've got 6 plants growing outside and taking over my garden as we speak - Columbus and Kent Goldings - so we make a decent amount of IPA but we're recently into the Belgian's - Golden Strongs and even some Farmhouse ale. I have a small cube freezer so right now I have one keg of Honey Lager and 1 keg of dark belgian. Last November I made my seasonal Belgian Persimmon which is around 10.5% abv and has a very righteous kick to it. I'm doing a SMASH high hopped ALE in a week or two to use up the rest of my Galena and Columbus pellets in my freezer. Next on the list will be a blueberry wheat, and then in the fall, I have an elderberry farmhouse ale. Since I grow all my own fruits - I like using what I have around the house. Next year when my current bushes are more productive, I'm planning a black currant porter. I have so many excellent recipes that I just don't have the time to try them all... for example ... a nettle beer recipe I'm dying to try.

I'll be having a belgian persimmon with dinner. Here's a few of my labels.

My mouth is watering! :)

So the Pineapple Ale is basically "dry hopped" with pineapple. We used fresh pineapple, about 2 cups and put it in after the wort was cool, before fermentation. As I recall, it has been ten years ago!

Nice brewhouse, with your own fruits and hops! Sounds damn fine.

I drink Lipton Brisk Zero Calorie Juicy Peach Green Tea every day-- about a gallon a day-- and unsweetened iced tea two or three times per week. Every couple of weeks or so, I'll buy a four-pack of energy drinks and polish them off in an evening.

I drink tons of tea... green, white, black and rooibos. All black, no sugar.
I drink about 2 cups of coffee a day, cream only.
I also make fruit smoothies, mostly banana. I think I am part monkey.
I also love beer, wine, martinis, and margaritas, mostly on weekends.
I drink about 3-4 Frescas a week.
I don't drink enough water, though. Only when and after I exercise.
