Id agree with this. I am guilty of this with milk and other groceries to some degree...i check dates and buy the one that has more time left even if i will finish it before the date of expiration.

Guilty.

I started doing it years ago cause I thought it would have less uv exposure. Now, since Iíve been doing it for so many years, its pretty much just a force of habit at this point.

Milk makes sense... dates of expiration and so on, but with beer? I guess if you want the freshest IPA and all that, it might make sense... but people donít realize that most of our stock came from the same case or at least from the same delivery. I suppose every once in awhile the 2nd six pack happens to be fresher than the first one.

For those who were asking, we fill all of our coolers from the back, so everything is... auto-rotated, I guess.

As for the cold thing... that really boggles my mind... I mean... I just donít get it. Itís going to sit in your car or wherever and get warm on the drive home, right? I donít think the back of the cooler is any colder and the beer is going to warm anyway?

As for the light exposure... Iím pretty sure most people who shop in a lot of beer stores donít even know that may be an issue.

A lot of beer geeks seem to think that uv light "skunking" beer is some special knowledge that only they possess, when in reality, it is actually pretty common knowledge these days.

Youíd be surprised. A lot more people than you think are probably doing it for the uv reason, not becasue they think there is some magical super cold, bottled yesterday beer back there somewhere.

My argument in this case is that itís not even an issue, but people will think what they think.
