Stone Enjoy By 9.21.12 – 9.4%ABV
About three months ago I purchased a 12 ounce bottle of Hitachino White Ale and being such a great wit beer I was really happy to get home and drink up. Only problem was when I got home and poured the beer it was almost like a sour beer and totally different from the beer I remembered drinking. I took a look at the bottle and to my surprise a bottle date was inscribed on it three years ago. I was so upset that I paid $6 for a 12 ounce of beer only to have it be three years old and sour.
Stone Brewery is trying to change that by putting the fresh by date right on the label in their beer Stone Enjoy By 9.21.12. I applaud them for taking such great steps in combating old outdated beer. Remember to always check the bottle for a fresh by or at least a bottle date and compare that to your style of beer. Most dark beers are ok to age most light beers go bad within the first 6 months.
