Seems like there's always a thread about green bottles, 2 month old "expired" beer, bottle shops with dust, not buying beer without best by dates, laser etched glasses, the perfect pour, etc. I'm not claiming that oxidation, shelf-life, skunking, and what-have-you shouldn't be genuine concerns... they are, but people seem to get so caught up in this stuff at the expense of just enjoying a beer. At this moment, I'm drinking a 5% ABV brew from England, that I found sitting in a non-temp controlled warehouse in Brooklyn, completely covered in dust, 8 years past expiration date... and from a coffee mug... ... and it tastes fantastic. I've bought lots of dodgy stuff over the years, but I've probably had to chuck about 1 beer for every 200 hundred for being off. Beers change over time, skunking is not a total myth, proper glassware matters somewhat, but it's also possible to relax at bit and just have a beer without worrying so much.
