Unless your from Europe you keep your beer cold. But how cold?

When I started drinking the brew I liked it as cold as possible. But now I know that numbs the taste buds and hides the true flavors and complexes of the beer. So now I keep the fridge at about 48-50F degrees.
I guess by telling you have an ICE COLD Bud,Coors, Miller GD the makers of BMC like to keep you in the dark on the true flavor of the brew.

If there is any!

Due to foaming problems with kegerator I pour commercial beer @ 38-40f, but let it sit for a minute until it reaches at least 44, much tastier. hopefully homebrews will be the same, i'll let you know in 2 weeks.

I'm a bottler, so they always come out of the fridge good and cold, but they're always just right about 1/4-1/2 way through.

Since I keep my kegs in the same box I ferment my lagers - it's in the range of 48-52.

Depends on the beer, but for most around 50 or higher.
