Anheuser Busch Beers

Anheuser Busch Beer is the topic of this installment in the “Did You Know?” series. This series will be information about the world of spirits. I will feature a different spirit in each “Did You Know” blog.

How Long Does Beer Last?

Beer is a food product and does have a shelf life. Because of this shelf-life, each can or bottle of beer brewed by Anheuser Busch has a “born on date” printed on its side.

The shelf life for that can of Budweiser in your fridge or out in the garage is 110 days from the “born on date.”

Keg or draft beer will go bad 50 days after the “born on date.”

Why Does “Keg Beer” Go Bad Sooner?

In contrast to draught beer, which comes in barrels (kegs), commercially available cans and bottles of beer contain pasteurized beer. While not the same for bottled or canned, draught beer must always be cold. However, for your enjoyment, I suggest that once you have chilled your canned or bottled beer, you keep them refrigerated until served.

Give Me Head

A foam head is a good thing. When beer is poured down the glass side, eliminating the foam head will make the beer look flat and unappealing. It will make the beer taste gassy and will fill you up faster.

How Many Kegs Needed?

A half-barrel of beer holds 15.5 gallons and yields 154 servings. Drawing a beer down the glass side, eliminating the foam head, will produce about 124 servings. That is a significant loss in servings and profits as well.
