Any answers? Awesome. usually people are picky and only want correct answers.

Yes you can bruise beer. Bleeding under the skin is a very serious condition in modern wort.

I hadn't ever heard the phrase "bruise beer" before. Are you Irish? I did a quick google search and found this thread which might help. At least it discusses beer bruising:

Dang. I dunno. But I do slam 'em after kegging.

Could this be a reference to oxidizing? Like when you throw apples, then a few days later they suck? If so, yes. You could injure it.

I try not to smack my beer around too much while I'm kegging to avoid excessive bruising.

Seriously....NO. Beer is really resiliant. The only real risk is oxydation and you just have to transfer your beer carefully.

Why do you think you hurt your beer?

Beer is pretty resilient especially when its young. A few bruises aren't a big deal but you need to be really careful of the head. Bumping the soft spot that can lead to long term damage.
