Well, that was an interesting little poll we ran. It seems that a large majority of y'all like having a "bottled on" date rather then just a "best before" date. I'm glad that's what we do then! Our beers generally hold up well for three months after the bottled-on date. SUE holds up well for at least a year if stored cool. We're working on our entire process now to eliminate as much oxygen pickup as we can, from fermentation all the way through packaging.
