    I'm wondering how CCB "dates" their beers. Just finished a can of Jai Alai dated 24OCT12 on the bottom. Anyone know if that's a best buy date or a canning date?

    its a canning date...seeing the bottling dates on the cans is much easier than on the bottles...i do believe they just started distro on the cans in early fall thsi year so that may have been one of the first few beers canned by CCB.
