Does beer REALLY go bad after its cold then warm then cold?

I gotta know. I was just having the argument that its best to keep beer that's been in the cooler at a store cold until you drink it. Then I thought about it, and I don't really know for sure.

I'm gonna be pretty upset if I end up having to murder Kenny Loggins.

Go bad, no - possible harm, si

Stolen info...

Thankfully, in a recent issue of Beer Advocate magazine, they asked and answered this question in their monthly column “Ask The Beer Geek”. Here’s the abridged answer:

….. When it comes to beer and temperatures, it’s the extremes that can damage beer. Although storing your beer in a constant cool environment is ideal and best for all beer, it’s not always an option. Sometimes beer will be put in a situation where it gets a bit “warm” but as long as it doesn’t get hot or freeze the beer will most likely be just fine ….

You don't think all that IPA made it from Britania to India still cool do you?

I figured it never got cool... which would help (along with all the hops) it keep longer... which kind of aids the argument that temp fluxuations could make it go bad.

I'm brewing my first batch this weekend, this is how the argument started. Got an Imperial American Pale Ale... or something.

I'm gonna be pretty upset if I end up having to murder Kenny Loggins.

Someone, maybe a knowitall, was telling you that you're doing it wrong.

If I can find a way to brew panty remover, that'll be it. as of now, the only way I've found to make it is mixing premade spirits with various juices. dammit.

It's called chloroform and some manual removal is necessary.

Not that I ever needed it but I've heard stories.

That's going to be a very small batch, lucky to get a six pack out of it!

The VT jello will act as the panty remover. You brew the beer for men!

I've had beer go from warm to cold countless times.

It's the sunlight that will make beer go bad, which is why they tint bottles.

"They’re lightstruck," came the short answer. Certain wavelengths of light (those around 5,000 angstroms) can turn a wonderfully aromatic beer into a skunkfest. "Hop oils have a sulf-hydryl grouping in their molecular structure," Radzanowski explained. "When these wavelengths of light hit that, there’s a photosynthetic reaction which changes that grouping to that of the common ’skunk’ aroma. Those wavelengths are abundantly present in sunlight and fluorescent light; incandescent light is not so bad."
Im bored.
