Can we come to some sort of standardization between brewed by date and best by date? I suggest that all breweries begin putting an either best-buy-date (subjective) or a brewed-by-date on the beer (freshness depends on the style). Right now a date on a can is incredibly confusing, not knowing whether it is brewed on the date or best by this date. A brewed-on-date would be nice as a standard to know when the beer was brewed and based on the style, one can conjugate how fresh the beer is. If the beer has a best-by date then they can add that. But for consistency, I think a brewery should be required to post a brewed-on date on the bottle/can. A best-by date should be optional. This would clear the date confusion on beers. Right now, I am often confused whether the date on a beer represents the brewed-on or best-by date. Please, we could easily make this standardized.
