Beer storage and aging

Any place with a wide variety is going to end up with old beer unless they charge enough to be able to toss the old ones. Some of what they sell just sucks - but you can't expect much from a $.59/beer. LOL

Cool storage will help some, but only so much - most beer doesn't "age", it just gets stale, and worse if exposed to constant light. I've had good luck grabbing from all the way in the back of the rows where it's dark and avoiding bottles that have obviously been dusted several times.;) Fairway's gotten better over the years, but Pioneer's selection is still better and their prices are usually lower too..

Also, they do have some cold beer, but nothing very exciting and only a small percentage of what they sell. T
