My wife is going to think i am nuts for stashing 22oz bottles of beer in the closet.
Also... Been drinking the La Fin Du Monde. The big bottle with the cork. That beer is really good.
Yes, like wine alot of higher ABV beers get better with age. I have a small "cellar" in my pantry that I keep afew rareitys and beers Im just not going to be able to find again stashed away for a special occation. If you do decide to start cellaring beer you want a dry, dark place that stays at a pretty constant 55-65 degrees. No lower than 45 and no higher than say 80ish. Store them for ATLEAST a year. I always buy 2 bottles if i can. Drink one fresh, and store the other away and drink it in a year or so and compare. Good luck, but watch out. Beer trading and cellaring is addicting and can get expensive. Especialy when you start trying to find Whales.
