I was just reading the thread about Store owners and how they handle beers that are beyond their sale date. I've discussed this so many times with customers and I think it warrants a try as its oun thread here. I do cellar some beers, some most people would understand and agree (High ABV, Stouts, etc) and some that people would frown on (High IPAs - Sculpins,Resins, etc) then some just for the sake of keeping them around. Since I deal with customers daily, I want to be able to tell them first hand what changes to expect in a beer that is past the sell date. I am not talking about those 30 packs that are 1 month or 2 past the date, but some of the craft beers. I bought a case of Sculpin last year. Every month a few of us would taste ito see if we could notice any changes. For the first 6 we really didn't notice anything. But soon afterwards, the freshness and approach of the hops started to diminish. The beer was still very drinkable and enjoyable, but it did loose some of that special feel that made it so outstanding in the beginning. That type of information I like to share with our customers.
