Important Changes to Note:
We recently made changes to the way in which we relay the shelf-life of our beer. Instead of having a packaging date on our packaging we now have a best-by date which is when the beer should be drunk by in order to ensure our fans enjoy our beer within the timeframe that our brewers intended.
Some of our stouts are more robust and can withstand storage periods of about a year, provided that they are kept in a cool and dark space. Refrigeration isn't completely necessary for any of our beers, but the key is always to avoid heat and light. Our double IPAs and some of our lagers such as Octoberfest have a 3-month shelf life.
Hopslam along with all of our double IPAs is best enjoyed as fresh as possible.
