I will have a beer in the privacy of my own practice room, but never in public.

There is no public transportation in this area, so if I'm playing a rehearsal or performance I've driven to it.  I don't drink and drive.  This is a cultural thing that has changed drastically for the better over my life - when I was young it seemed to be perfectly acceptable.  I am sure I could drive after one beer, but I don't. 

The second reason is that I don't have a cushion of skill to spare.  I need to be on top of my game, as well as do all the extras (be early, be sober, be easy to work with, etc.)
