Does beer really expire?
The short answer is that yes, beer expires. But saying the beer expires is a bit misleading, it doesn’t actually become unsafe to drink, it just starts to taste unappealing or flat.
Does unopened beer go bad?
Properly stored, unopened beer will generally stay at best quality for about 6 to 8 months in the refrigerator, although it will usually remain safe to use after that. If unopened beer develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, it should be discarded for quality purposes.
Can you drink out of date beer 2 years?
The simple answer is yes, the beer is still good insofar as it is safe to drink. (Typically, the drink-by dates on beers are four to six months out; this is based on how long the brewer thinks the beer can retain fresh flavor.)

Does expired beer get you drunk?
In a word, no. The alcohol content of beer (and wine, for that matter) is determined during the fermentation process and will not change over time. When the yeast dies, it cannot produce more alcohol [source: Wine Spectator]. So why does one type of beer have a greater alcohol content than another?

Can beer “go bad”? No, beer has no use by date, meaning it is safe to drink well past the best before date. Beer won’t be dangerous to drink, but the taste of the beer will deteriorate over time. If you think it tastes fine, there’s no reason not to drink it.

Is skunked beer safe to drink?

Does beer go bad if it’s not refrigerated?
The beer will be fine if you leave it at room temperature in your home. In other words, not in a hot garage, or out on the deck in the hot sun, unless it’s winter (and not freezing out). That type of extreme heat — think 80-plus degrees — will, in fact, ruin the beer.
