Ok, so theoretically I KNEW that beer has a shelf life.

Well, last year I bought a case of really good local craft beer, and intended to send a 4-pack to my brother for Christmas. Well, I never got around to sending it on, and then he decided to move from California to Michigan so I just held onto it.

It has been sitting in a cool quiet dark corner of my basement since late last November.

Note to self: Drink the beer, and age the mead...
