    Sure this has been asked before ( quick search didn't pull up)but I have a few beers that were once in a cellar at my old place but due to moving I had to put them in a beer fridge at my new place. I have a chance to move them back into a cellar. Will this harm the beer? Beer in question are stouts and one 2008 smuttynose saison I bought at the brewery cold.

    No worries at all. Can you report back when you drink that saison...I can't imagine that would hold up this long...but hey, good luck.

    I will. I was surprised to see a farmhouse saison from 2008 for sale at the brewery.

    A couple temperature shifts isn't a big deal, it's the regular cyclic temperatures from day/night/day/night that really impede aging quality.

    I was just about to ask this too. My fridge no longer has space for daily drinkers.
