When stored at room temperature, you can expect beer to last for six to nine months beyond the use-by date. Refrigeration increases this time period to up to two years.
You’re drinking your beer too cold ! Ice cold temperatures can actually ruin the flavour of a good beer . The average household refrigerator is usually set at about 32-40° F (0-4° C), but letting your beer sit in your fridge for long periods of time at this temperature isn’t always the right temperature for your beers .
Probably not. The cold temperature makes the beer refreshing but it dampens the flavour. Sometimes you just want a bit of refreshment. But if your aim is to truly enjoy the taste of your beer , it’s best not to drink it ice-cold.
Certainly, higher-than-normal temperatures for an extended period of time can have a bad effect on a beer’s flavor. Heat actually doesn’t create a specific off flavor itself. So a beer sitting at 60 degrees Fahrenheit will retain its original flavor for much longer than a beer sitting at 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beer is best preserved when kept cold… Keeping beer at room temperature can drop a beer’s shelf life from nearly six months to only a few weeks, and exposing the same beer to very warm temperatures can affect its flavor in a matter of a couple of days.
It would be safe to drink , in the sense of it would not cause any harm to you . Beer is very resistant to heat, it will preffer to be stored in a cold location, but will probably not go bad at room temperature for extended periods of time. What really spoil it is is UV light.
Water expands when it freezes. And for canned liquids under pressure, that can mean explosion. The freeze temperature for Coca-Cola is 30 degrees, and the temperature for beer that’s 5% alcohol by volume is 27 degrees (higher-alcohol beers freeze at lower temperatures), as NJ.com reported.
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.
Coke debate, Pepsi comes out on top (of the temperature scale). A company spokeswoman says Pepsi is best consumed at 42 F , plus or minus 3 degrees. A spokesman for Coca-Cola says Coke’s ideal temperature is 38 F.
They were ready for consumption after two hours and not one moment before; however we did keep opening the fridge to check, letting out precious cold air. (See our infographic: Where Food Goes In The Fridge .)

About 15 minutes
Normal beers (with pretty low alcohol content), as long as the bottle or can is unopened, can last at least half a year. Once the beer is opened, it should be drunk within a day or two. After that time, in most cases it’ll be fine, but its taste will be far from what you’ve expected (it’ll be flat).
Drinking beer past the expiration date is not ideal, but in the event that you drink a “rotten beer ”, just know that drinking a bad beer probably won’t make you sick and it won’t kill you . At the most, you can expect a bit of a stomach ache and a slight feeling of disappointment and disgust.
According to Craft Beer USA, “A general rule of thumb for the brewing industry is that beer stored at 100°F for one week tastes as old as beer stored at 70°F for two months, or as old as beer stored at 40°F for one year.”
