How To Store Your Beer
If you’re a beer lover, you know that there’s nothing worse than finding a flat, warm bottle of your favorite brew. Fortunately, with a little care and attention, you can keep your beer fresh and delicious for weeks or even months. The most important thing to remember is that beer is a living, breathing product, and it needs to be treated accordingly. Here are a few tips on how to store your beer:
First, always store your beer in a cool, dark place. Exposure to light and heat will cause the flavors in your beer to deteriorate quickly. If you can’t find a dark corner in your fridge, consider investing in a small cooler or wine fridge.
Second, make sure that the bottles or cans are tightly sealed. Oxygen is beer’s number one enemy, so you want to make sure that there’s as little air exposure as possible. If you’re using bottles with screw-top caps, make sure that the caps are screwed on tightly. For cans, it’s best to store them in a six-pack carrier with the top closed.
Finally, don’t forget to label your beer! It’s easy to forget what you have in your fridge when it’s stuffed full of food
