Storing Beer: Light

The sun is not your beer’s friend. Light interferes with your brew’s composition, and can cause “skunky”, off-flavors. Generally, store beer in dark, but not too scary, places. Colored glass will protect your beer – consider it sunscreen for your brew. All in all, brown bottles tend to keep out light better than the green.
