    Expired beer

    Has anyone drank expired beer and if so did it taste different than unexpired beer?

    I wouldn't get too excited about free Budweiser or Michelob Ultra even if it hadn't expired.

    Re: Expired beer

    a little skunky depending on how expired. But if you drink a six pack of good beer before these you wouldn't know the difference.

    Re: Expired beer

    You have beer around the house long enough to expire? You might check that man card to see if it has expired as well.

    Re: Expired beer

    Depends on glassware ie: brown, green, clear etc. In addition its gonna be how it's been stored temp wise. No matter, if it's still sealed it may taste like pelosi but I doubt it kills you. Enjoy.

    You can get some good deals on beers at DrugTown in DSM (42nd & University) for beer @ or shortly after the expiration date. Stay with the brown bottles and enjoy, haven't had many problems with near expired beer

    Re: Expired beer

    20 years ago there wasn't expired beer. I drank a hell of a lot more back then than I do now, and I still have my sight, my taste buds and the gut to prove it.

    Re: Expired beer

    I've had some locally brewed stuff that I forgot about in the back of my fridge before and it was beyond nasty. Knew it was bad the second I tasted it.

    I drank Natty ICE on fire sale at the keg shop once it tasted like rubbing alcohol

    Pretty sure that's normal even when it's fresh

    Yes... and it depends mostly on how long it has been expired.

    Did anybody else hit up the fire sales at the Keg Shop constantly in college? We got so many great deals there. They would even have stuff on fire sale that you couldn't normally buy there, and really cheap. Probably still have them I guess, I think they used to be most Tuesdays.

    Re: Expired beer

    I drank a Meister Brau once that was in my buddy's Dad's fridge. They said it had been in there for 4 or 5 years. Tasted like normal Meister Brau to me and it didn't kill me... so I would say no big deal.
