Not really an issue with these, beer like wine can age very well but depends on the beer, these should be doing well, as long as the temp stays stead

Haven't heard of this, but it sounds like something I need to try.
I drink Arrogant on the regular, I actually had it two nights ago lol, just an awesome all around beer. Arrogant, Dead Guy and Racer 5 are my go to beers.

Is there an alcohol lower threshhold for aging? I know the normal stuff spoils. The pallets I mentioned above were Sam Adams.

I have a few Budweiser 2000 bottles. Can't stand Bud, but wanted a collectible bottle. I have about a case of Taka beer from the 1990s. The beer was terrible to begin with and the brewery went out of business.

I rarely drink anymore, so most of what I have are months old. I've got about 200 cigars that are at least five years old now. No time for vices.
I'm literally just serving this beer at my tasting party to get rid of it, I think it's disgusting, definitely a novelty beer to have for fun. I ordered two of them, wasn't even able to come close to finishing the first one.

Have some preztels handy
Thanks for the kind words, I'll probably open half of them and let the others sit for a while longer. I pick up about 10 beers a year to age, just depending on what I find. There are a few beers out there I can't get over here in CA, like Goose Island stuff, I have a friend in Chicago that should be back here next week and I'm hoping she surprises me
