The Beer Boutique

Storing beer is relatively straightforward.  There are just 3 key areas to consider:

  1. Beer just doesn't like it! So store your fine beer away from direct sunlight. This is also the reason why most beer bottles are made of brown glass, because it is most effective in blocking sunlight.
  2. Ideally at cellar temperature but in practice anywhere between 5ºC and 25ºC (41ºF to 77ºF) will do. More important is to avoid rapid swings in temperature. So don't store close to a radiator or near a boiler.
  3. Bottle conditioned beer should be stored upright to allow yeast sediments to drop.  Depending how much a bottle has been "disturbed", this could take several days and even weeks. This is why we take great care when transporting and delivering our beers.
