Sitting in a hotel room in BHM biding my time for the Foo Fighters concert enjoying a St. Bernardus Abby 12.....and a thought occurred to me....

What makes a beer worthy of aging? Why a Belgian and not a Pilsner? Boy the year spent in my spare bedroom has made this 750 a champion....

There are probably very few styles of beer that don't benefit from aging-Figuring out what the best timeframe is the trick though...

The higher the ABV and the maltier a beer, the longer it can age. Hoppy beers don't do well past a year, as the aroma fades.
