They think it is fresher. I get the better date on the milk and would check the date of an IPA or IIPA, but I donít think it is going to make much difference for Bud Light (or other light pale lager).

ive been to places where the workers are lazy (not saying you are :))and put the warm beverages in front of cold instead of rotating, so for a while it was a habit to grab from the back just to make sure it was cold.

99% of the time it is because they think it is colder.

When I was new to good beer, I used to do this for some of the aforementioned reasons. I worried about the beer being light-struck, and worried that product isnít being rotated. I still do it sometimes, and on a couple of occasions I have found some aged vintage beers that got lost in the back of the shuffle that I would prefer over the fresh version. I just scored a Rodenbach Vintage 2007 (this vintage is sublime), when there was Vintage 2009 up front on the shelf.

Could also be they want to make sure they are getting six of the same beer. I know some stores around here allow people to break up six packs/buy singles, and quite a few times Iíve grabbed the front sixer only to find that some person had swapped a couple different beers into it.

I always do this with milk just for that reason. We donít drink it that fast, so I appreciate the extra "best by" days. Logic and rationale be damned, Iím really anal about those dates on my food.

Itís completely illogical to not find the freshest foods. I do this with all food with a best by or packaged on date. Why would you want to increase the likelihood of wasting food and thus money and why wouldnít you want to eat the freshest foods? People that donít look for the freshest foods are idiots.
