    Acctually it happens all the time but, as mentioned before typically only for BMC products, becasue BMC brewry reps will come in and chew thier ass if there is old product out there. I work closely with distributors in my area and, when it comes to craft, they typically only swap out old seasonals that are just to obviously out of code to leave in the market.

    How about longest expired or out of season beer you've seen served on-tap?

    A local place here had Red Chair on tap here in October still. I asked if they had gotten an early 2013 batch and they said 'nope, we have a bunch of this from last winter yet'.
