2 years old beer

I just discovered in my cellar some 8 bottles of forgotten beer that shows "best consumed before 2009" and another 2010. do you think I should just throw them away?

Sip them first, they might be OK to drink, you won't be poisoned.

If it's no good, it'll taste crap, but wont kill you.

[just make sure you have a good book left at the ready in the smallest room]

Re: 2 years old beer

I've just happily finished the last of a crate of beers which I noticed were apparently "best before" Feb 2010. They tasted fine and I didn't die.

My guess is if they open without the customary "tss" they might not be as fizzy as they should be.

Re: 2 years old beer

"best consumed before" means exactly that...its only a quality warning, not a health warning
