How Long will the beer last?

All our brews are 100% natural with no preservatives added. It is imperitive you store your beer in a cool dark place. (A fridge is ideal). Basically we think shelf life is about 2 months. The more hops in the beer the longer the life. Beer lasts longer in the winter than the summer. Storage and bottle cleanliness are the main djangos in shelf life.
