This beer has been in Grampa’s bar for an indeterminate amount of time. When we moved him to a retirement home after gramma died last January, my father and his brother split the extensive liquor inventory of grampa’s handbuilt bar. The bar was awesome and was a center of our family social life for decades. Very sad to not have it a part of family get-togethers anymore.
But we uncovered several of these Jupiler Belgian canned beers and not sure what to do with them. I really want to try them! Beer stays for ages right? Even it were 10-15 years old tops, it would still be all right to drink right? According to Wikipedia Jupiler is Belgium’s most popular mass-produced beer (owned by Anheuser-Busch Inbev) and is a 5.2 pale lager. It might actually qualify for entry into the Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can if I can determine its price here in the states. So anyways, drinking this if it is old won’t kill me right? My dad thinks its probably between 5-10 years old.
Gramma was a proud, fighting Belgian. And our midwestern town had a strong Belgian influence, even a Belgian Cultural Center. So I was raised knowing what a decent beer should taste like and from early on learned to squander my money on the finest beer I can get ahold of.
