1. Make sure it's fresh. Check the packaged and best before dates of the beer you are delivered
It’s a Fact. Fresh beer tastes better. One of the key reasons Hops to Home was founded was to satisfy our quest for fresh craft beer after being continually disappointed while visiting bottle shops only to find out the beer purchased was packaged months and months ago. Most breweries now display the packaged date and best before date on cans and bottles. Usually, the best before date is 12 months after packaging. Let me tell you friends that a beer packed 6 days ago vs. 6 months ago will give you a completely different taste and smell profile. There’s nothing better than a fresh beer! This is why we guarantee our craft beer club members that the beer in our packs is canned no more than 30 days before shipping date.
