    So suppose one has a case of beer, and after being properly cooled in a refrigerator, one accidentally leaves it in his truck overnight and it is allowed to reach room temperature (~60 degrees). Is it possible to re-chill it without it going skunk?

    Solution: Move to Minnesota. Leave alcohol in vehicle 24/7, it'll be colder than any fridge could make it.

    60 should not have done anything appreciable to the beverage. It really only effects it if it gets to around 70-75F.:D It also depends on what beer it is i.e. if it is your typical domestic (colored water) then I do not think it could really hurt that any at all:haha: . After 4 or 5 you can't taste it anymore anyhow:D .

    It really depends on what kind of beer it is. If it is an import or from a big brewery (Bud, Coors, etc) who generally pasturize their beer, you will probably notice more of a poor taste due to it getting old than letting it warm and re-chill. If it was from a micro-brewery where they most likely filter and not pasturize and the temp raise above 50-55 degrees F, the bacteria used to ferment wil become active again and will spoil the flavor.

    Coors does not pasteurize thier beer, AB and Miller do. I don't think temp really affects beer all that much. Sunlight exposure is really what makes beer skunky the most (hence why most beer bottles are brown).

    I guess you are kind of right on that one. This is from the Coors Website http://www.coors.com/didyouknow/facts.asp.

    "To ensure freshness, most beer products are kept cold through brewing, packaging, and distribution. They are shipped cold in insulated or refrigerated railcars and trucks. Coors uses a unique filtering and sterile-fill system, which stabilizes the beer without heating it. Coors, however, pasteurizes some products, mostly exports that require an extra quality-assurance measure for the extended travel"

    This leads me to believe that they pasteurize more than exports. Not that pasteurizeing is bad.

    I didn't really read what everyone else said, but I think it should be fine. Don't they ship them across different states summer/winter in drastic changes in climate? I.E. Freezing temperatues in the north and hot in the south??
