Storing Beer: Temperature

To slow the advance of age and extend the life of your beer, put it in the refrigerator. Cooler temperatures help preserve its freshness longer, which is great for the homebrewer who wants every bottle of the batch to taste good. For commercially-brewed beers, how much refrigeration will help depends on how much flavor stabilization, such as pasteurization or addition of preservatives, that the beer has undergone.
