Do you like beer? Do you have friends, and do they like beer? If so, it's probably not an issue. You get at LEAST six months out of a batch provided it's bottled/kegged properly and stored properly. I'm assuming that you know about temperature and UV concerns. If it's lasting you more than six months, I want to be your friend.....

it can last longer than 6 months, depending on style, storage, handling, etc.
