Wine is notoriously known for its ageing process – the longer it stays unopened, the better it tastes. One of the hottest trends right now is ageing craft beers, however not all beer should be aged. Even when it comes to beers that can be aged for a better taste and flavour, there still comes a specific set of rules to follow.
If you’re looking for a beer cellaring 101, then you’ve come to the right place as the latest infographic from Next Door Storage takes a look at which beers are best suited to ageing and how we can best do it.
There’s a certain few beer buzzwords to look out for if you’re on the hunt for a beer that will age over time. For example, bottle-conditioned beers are great for ageing as they contain active yeast that will ferment over time. For a pro-cellaring experience, make sure to stock up on Baltic Porter, double imperial stout and scotch ales.
There’s no specific time frame for how long you should age your beer, but the minimal amount of time is usually around a year so make sure you keep your beer cellar regularly stocked up often so your beer needs are met throughout the year.
