Fellow BAs, quick Q. How long does beer last on the shelf? My local stores will let good, ageable brews sit on their shelves until purchased. Always cool and no sun invasion. Of course fresh beers avoided (just saw a 2011 and 2012 Stone Collab both stating enjoy fresh). But countless DFH 120s and RIS and others being released this month but bottled early 2012. Couldn't find a thread on point while community/threads/will-a-store-get-rid-of-stale-beer-or-let-it-sit.51848/page-2#post-676539 was nice. Thoughts?
