How to Care For Your Craft Beer

SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It's no secret that San Diego produces some of the best craft beer in the world, and that beer lovers can find a cornucopia of local, national, and international craft brews at San Diego retailers and restaurants.  But like fine wine, the best craft beers need a little TLC to make sure they stay healthy until you're ready to pop the top.  

As with wine, the best beers need to be stored properly to maintain their freshness.  Many can be aged for 6 months to 25 years to develop their optimum flavor characteristics.  The best beers for storing include barley wines, Lambics, stouts, strong ales, and vintage beers.

These beers should be kept at a constant temperature of 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit and kept away from light sources, which can turn beer "skunky".  Most experts agree that craft beer should be stored upright, not on its side like collectible wines.  

So needless to say it pays to protect your craft beer investment by storing it properly.  San Diego Wine Storage offers beer lovers a selection of private, secure lockers where their craft beer will age gracefully at 55 to 57 degrees, free from light, vibration, and other harmful influences.  The company has full service locations in downtown San Diego and Solana Beach.
