Lifespan of Booze
I found this article. Found it interesting.
I think with proper storage most wines/spirits preserve better than stated. What say you all? I also think quality bottled beer does too.

Packed in glass and high proof should last forever. Wine eventually turns to vingear. Not sure what happens to beer but cant think of any possible happy scenarios at present. On sort of a related side note I know an old beer dumped into a jug of whiskey to make up the level will grow a big ball of funk. Takes it a month or two but it will do it. Found that out trying to grab some spirits out of the evidence cabinet one time. We also had fruit jars full of Dexedrine and Benzedrine and real black mollies..aka West Coast Turn around. One of them and a case of beer a person felt sober for a day or two.

Sunlight and air is a killer if sealed and kept from light there is no lifespan of 80 proof + however I will never know it's never going to last that long around here.
Beer is only good for a few hours
The friend I spoke of who owned a liquor store, use to dump canned beer after some time period had passed., 4-5 years??
The graves 190 proof and the Bacardi 151 proof i have stored will never go bad.
Still wines do turn into vinegar after many years especially if still in the barrel like my grandfather's did.
Made the stuff for his nightclub during the prohibition times, was turned when we dumped it in the 60's.
The moonshine was still good @190 proof, that we handed out to friends who drank, 2, 35 gallon? wooden kegs of it.
Champagne only improves with age, look at the price of a bottle of 80 year old Dom Perignon, who can afford it???
My beer will never ever spoil

During prohibition they used the cornmeal and yeast that was ordered for the kitchen in the club/restaurant to make corn liquor.

The house gas line was used for the cooker and a burner insert fired the chimney
that killed almost all the smell coming from the process.
They put a "T" fitting on the gas line before the meter to keep the reader from being suspicious about the volume of gas
being used. They had the "T" wrenches used for the street shutoffs.
Water meter was also bypassed.
They only worked the still at night, my father did his share of work and drinking I think.

Around many people it does not have much of a life span. That show eating history has tried some old canned and bottle beer with very sad results. the open some old liqueur and it was ok.

After reading this Obama said I am on it.
It seems to me that beer in bottles can increase the strength of alcohol when stored for a long time. Have you thought about it? Of course, the wine only gets better over time.
