    Buy new beer, and save the old till you have a buzz going. Then you won't notice the taste difference. Or save it for people you don't like.:D :D :D

    imo, fat tire always tastes crappy. However, if you think the beer has been skunked, the best thing to do with it is keep it in your cooler as give away beer. That way you have something to give to the mooches who generally are too cheap to show up with their own beer. That way, you still seem like an alright guy because your sharing, and if they don't like it, tell them to buy their own fckng beer next time.

    Plus most people won't know what its supposed to taste like anyway and will assume that it always tastes like that. They will probably even tell you how good it is.:rolleyes: :D

    This is VERY sound advice.


    generally beer turns from exposure to light, not fluxxuations in temperature.

    Generally, I’ve found that if the beer is pasteurized, then it will do fine cycling temperatures from warm to cold and back. If the beer is only filtered, then it may change the taste considerably, but then of course, pasteurization is heating the beer to kill the microorganisms that can spoil the beer. :rolleyes: I don’t remember if Fat Tire is pasteurized or just filtered. I’d bet that it’s pasteurized.

    Based on my own experiences, I think beer can go skunky from too many temperature changes. Usually going from cold to warm and back to cold again is alright. But if it goes cold to warm to cold to warm to cold, it tastes skunky in my opinion. May be weird, but thats just me.
