It is not dangerous!

Time-expired beer does not make you sick. Bacteria cannot grow in beer - partly because of the content of alcohol, carbon dioxide and bitter components of hops and partly because the pH value is low, just below 4.5.The flavour may however have changed and turned bread-like.

The bottles are labelled "best before". That means that the beer is still drinkable after the fixed expiry date but that no guarantees are given for flavour or appearance. The "old" taste appears gradually, depending on the storage conditions.

Remember to keep your beer cool and protect it against heat and sunlight.
