Question for the #fancybeer posters. I have had a collection of ales for awhile, and I keep them cool in the cold cellar all year, until I put them in the fridge before consumption.

How long can I keep Belgian / trappist ales and other assorted #fancybeer before they go off? I have had some of them for 5 or 6 years.

Off is a tricky question. They won't go bad, so the advice at the end of this is just open em and try. It depends on the beer. Generally speaking high ABV and sour beers age well, low ABV and hoppy beers poorly. Trappist stuff tends to be a good style for aging, so you might be alright even after 5-6 years. You'll find them pretty smooth and mellow, with most of the spice gone. Some people, wrong people, like them better that way. Try em and see.

Oh, open them over a sink. They might be over carbonated now and gush a little when you open them.

I tried one. It was okay, but it tasted like it lost some flavour (or smooth and mellow if you want to call it that). It also seemed to have lost some alcoholic content, if that is reasonable. It was supposed to be a 9.5% ale but tasted like 5 or 6% type beer. I wasn't as big a fan as I expected to be.

Are you sure they don't go bad? (Does bad in this sense need definition?) When I lived in Belgium people tended to go for fresher beers from what I understood.

That's what I would have expected, maybe it would work better with a darker beer but while I've heard of breweries doing vertical tasting, not sure an old one is ever better? Of course storage and light matter too.. and humidity, type of cap...

As a #weekendwarrior dad with cargo shorts and some pretty rad sandals, I enjoyed a weird dad beer today before going back to the regular stuff. It was Hop City Tiki something. One of those summer beers with different flavors. I think it was pineapple? Anyway, it was pretty cool. I would drink another one someday.

Any of you Southron Ontario degenerates have some LCBO beer suggestions for my summer yardwork?

That's the heat dropping out, kinda what I meant by mellow. The booze is still there, there's no way for it to get out.

It'll definitely loose flavour. I prefer stuff fresh, usually.

It won't go bad in the sense that it won't make you sick. It could absolutely taste bad.

You want something light and easy to drink? My go to for stuff like that is Dab, especially if you can find fresh cans. The date is on the flat and to me fresh means within 2 months. Price point is pretty good on this one too.

A good beer for relaxing after the work is done is Side Launch Wheat. Wheat beers are a lot more flavorful than a light lager like Dab, but they're great on a hot day.

Dab is good. I like palm too. Both are pretty standard.

Nothing really to add here, but I find Trappists quads age pretty well, but any ale less than a 8% ABV should be consumed fresh. Sours don't really change so drink them fresh too, especially if fruit in involved.

i feel really bad I haven't been to my local beer store since the lockdown happened. It's too easy/safer to just get shit delivered. I finally ventured into a store for the first time today. I wore a mask.

Also. Today, i was repleneshing my everyday wine stock at the local store when, on the way to the cash, noticed they had a lot of Rochefort's and Westmalle on special. I have never had a Westmalle. Bought a lot of both.

Tripel? The Dubbel is very good, but the Tripel is one of the all time great beers. It's essentially the definition of the style.
