Hey Yall,

I stumbled across some 14 month-aged, dry-hopped pale ale in the fridge this afternoon. It's an all grain 6% abv , 49 IBU, 12 SRM American Pale Ale .
Tastes every bit as good as the last time I drank it .....when ever that was. lol

What's the oldest beer in your fridge?

Over 2 years old Hop Ottin IPA. It was a gift, but it was already super old on the store shelves. It's great fresh, but when it's old, there's a reason there's still a bottle in my fridge after this long.

I still have a Guinness can in the fridge from when I turned 21....I'm 33 now. I left it in my parents fridge when I moved out. A couple weeks ago, I looked in their fridge and was shocked to see it still sitting there, 12 years later. I haven't opened it up yet, but I'm really curious. I'm not sure if the can will impart some metallic flavor to it over that span of time. Only one way to find out I guess.

I also put two bottles of Sierra Nevada Narwhal in the back of my fridge a couple months ago that I don't plan on touching for a couple years.

Half a case of 22 oz. bombers of 2010 Belgian Tripel. OK, not in the fridge but they are in the storage closet.
