We have all been there, long humid steamy day and you are ready for a beer. Crack open only to taste skunked beer. Shit. First thought is how does this happen. Do I drink it? How do I prevent this? Why today?
Skunked beer typically refers to any beer gone bad. More specifically “skunked beer” refers to beer that was over exposed to sunlight. An easy way to do a home test is to leave a beer in the sunlight for just a few hours and you will be able to taste the skunked flavor.
To prevent this most beer sold in brown bottles or cans. Cans truly are the best vessel for beer because aluminum recycles so well. Recycling places will actually give you money for empty beer cans. What an investment idea?
Yes, you can drink the beer, or you can give it to a bum or broke college kid. Cheers.
