How do you mean? I brew between sept and around April or may usually, as I don't have a fermenting fridge and the house is a bit warm after that (saisons excluding!).
I don't really brew styles for seasons. And I don't brew at set times, mainly when I can get away with it! Once every month maybe.

I don't, I just brew when the mood takes, and I brew what the mood takes, but it would actually be a good idea to plan ahead and have a proper organised routine, recipes planned, and then just order the stuff I need! Instead of ordering a lot of random stuff and then playing ready steady brew on brewday - working out what to make.

I don't plan to a calendar but I do have one up on my brew fridge, easiest way to keep track of when I brewed stuff and whats due for dry hopping, bottling etc etc

As above, I just brew what I feel like drinking next.

The only brews I could call "calender" ones would be my really big Xmas brews - on one level down to tradition (eg : Sammiclaus is traditionally brewed on the 15th of December) but in the main that they will need very long conditioning times (6-8 months +) so I want them for a specific event , say, Next Xmas.  I used to also have set times of year for certain styles, but this went the moment I built my first fermentation chamber.
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

I don't, but I want to get a bit more organised and do that going forward.  I especially need to plan ahead for the bigger brews and think about when they'll be reaching their best.

I tend to brew fortnightly, though that isn't always possible with family & other commitments. I used to plan up to six brews ahead, but now I tend to make up my mind just a day or so before. I haven't done any brews that needed long conditioning times, so brews are ready in anything from two (kolsh & wit) to six weeks. Of course some of the higher abv beers benefit from three months plus, but it's pot luck if they survive that long [smile]
