How do I know my beer is fresh?

From brewer to the retail shelf or cooler, our beers are rotated on a first in-first out basis to ensure you are getting beer that is within the freshness guidelines established by the brewers. Typically domestic beers are best consumed within 110 days from the date of packaging. Import beers are best consumed within 180 days of packaging. Brewers use coding to identify the “born on” date of packaging, or date of “best before” date.

Most importantly your beer will taste brewery fresh if you store it in a cool environment free of exposure to ambient lighting. Lagers are best served at `38 degrees and Ales at slightly higher temps.

What does ABV mean?

ABV is the acronym for Alcohol by Volume. ABV is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol content of beer, wine and spirits. Domestic and import lager beers typically have an ABV of 4-5% per 12 ounce serving. Ales typically range from 5-10%. In order to enjoy beer responsibly it is important to know the ABV and the size of the serving to ensure you “know when to say when”.
