Beer


Busch beer comes with a born on date.

So,,,, how long from then is it good for?
How come beer doesn't come with an expiration date instead?

I guess the thread hasn't been read all the way through. I'll see if I can edit it down.
The purpose was to find out about these born on dates. How do you judge the freshness of a beer by its born on date? Is one month too long?

I was hiking in the bush once and we decided to go off path and finish the final day's walking (about 10 miles) via different river valley to small tourist town as the destination. About two hours into the walk we saw on the map that the town's sewage outlet was in the river we chose to walk up, and we didn't want to drink poo-water so we walked in severe heat up enormous inclines for many, many hours without water.

Needless to say we were absolutely starving of thirst......and about half-an-hour away from the town (and sewage outlet) under a thick forest canopy a spotlight beam of sunshine shone on the river bed lighting up a can of beer. I jumped into the knee deep water and retrieved this faded, and river-rock-dented old can of full beer and held it up to the sky to praise the lord.

Me and three others shared that beer in about 10 seconds and it was the best tasting and sweetest beer i have ever drunk. We believe considering the age of the can and faded logo it must have been about 5 -10 years old. We discussed this for a long time after and were convinced that the beer did in fact taste good and was not just because we were near death....

So I have never really felt the need to give refrigerated beer a shelf life.....but i am sure many disagree. A month is definitely too short....

Beer


The born on date is a gimic, beer if handled properly will taste the same @1 month or 6-8 months. And thats for mega brewed filtered yellow fizzy beer(not really much of a beer) a micro/craft brewed beer that is alive with yeast and goodness can take several months to reach its prime and will stay there for a year or two changing the whole time, their is beir de gard( I think) a french farm style beer that is meant to be aged. Bo if you like busch you should treat yourself to a 12pk of pilsner urquel, it is THE original pilsner that all american mega beers are based on, it is the perfect balance of sweet and bitter with a really creamy mouth feel and at about 4.5% alc it's a beer you can sip all afternoon and still walk to bed.

If you are buying beer because of a "Born On Date", you are buying by price, not by taste.

Stl B.: Your post intrigued me so I searched Pilsner Urquell. You know your beer and Pils Urq will be my next beer purchase. Can't wait, thanks.

Beer


I don't worry about born on dates. If it's hot outside and your working in the yard, then as long as it is cold, it'll do the trick. The only exception being perhaps imported beer in green bottles. They say that the dark bottles keep light out which helps keep the beer form spoiling. If true, then those who prefer Heiniken prefer to drink spoiled beer. I'm sure this will prompt some to argue and I guess my counter would be that I didn't fall in love with beer on the first swig. It took years of aging and the slump into mediocrity to convince me that beer is awesome. And anyway you look at it, alcohol is a process of letting something rot.

I'm a Bud Light guy, but I enjoy the occasional Labatt Blue.

Yes, but you can't see them! They can't find them anyway!

I am sorry, I thought this would be a discussion about beer.

Busch has no expiration date, because it will never be worse than it is when you carry it home.
