OK, so I have a bunch of beer doin it's thing in my basement. And I have a mini fridge. So I'm wondering - would the lower temperatures affect how the beer ages? Will it age better at room temperature? Quality answers, quality people. Thanks

You'll hate this, but the only true answer is: It depends.

Is it an ale or lager? What style ale/lager are you brewing? What kind of yeast are you using? What do you think is the approximate room temperature?

Let us know some specifics and we can probably help out! :D

In terms of time it will age quicker at higher temperature. However in terms of actually quality it is believed that it is better to be patient and age the beer at lower temperature even if this takes longer.
