It sounds like your husband is having four beers a day. Although I'm not recommending it, if he is healthy and eating well perhaps he can handle it spread over the day like that.
Granted, beer is a diuretic and in this hot weather he needs water and other liquids too.
Can you make a deal with him for every beer he consumes that he drinks an equal amount of water?
It sounds like he is a happy well-adjusted man who enjoys life and neighbors. Sometimes people who drink a lot eat light and miss the proper nutrition.
Is this a new habit with him? When he is not as hot or in the winter months does he drink as much? If his health is good and the amount doesn't increase Webby wouldn't worry, but if you do, have him check with his doctor.
And of course he knows not to get behind the wheel of a car after having more than a beer or so, right? That should be non-negotiable.
Webby also hopes that you often join him in the yard; if not for a beer, for pleasant conversation.
