IIRC, the Conways Bros (raging hippies) that run Great Lakes don't use some kind of preservative that makes beer last longer.Definitely wanna drink Great Lakes beers in the first 120 days they are bottled. Noticable difference as thet age IMO.

Noticable difference as thet age IMO.I've had mixed results with aging Xmas ale, this year definitely was not a good result.However, I aged The Southern Tier Pumking this year and it was delicious! I'm going to age two bottles for next year.

Had a friend tell me the guy who created it for great lakes left for thirsty dog and took the recipe with him. He owns the rights to it or something. Explains why the taste of Great Lakes Xmas ale has changed from a few years ago. 8.3 to 7.5 too.
