That is a shocker.  NOT!  Experation dates tend to say "Best if used by" instead of "Dont be a fucking moron"

I wish we could auction Dan off to the lowest bidder.

my dad's friend used to run


my dad's friend used to run a beer store (they only had a license to sell beer, no wine or liquor) and he used to hook my dad up with cases of expired beer. he couldn't sell it anymore, but of course there wasn't a damn thing wrong with it. honestly, i think companies put expiration dates on lots of things just because they have to. even if the product can spoil, the expiration date comes well before that. the worst that can happen to beer is that it will taste stale. it certainly won't hurt you.

other examples: it's been shown that expired over-the-counter medicines (tablets and capsules, not liquids) pose no risk at all, and only lose a tiny percentage of their effectiveness per decade. i've been using a bottle of thai fish sauce for years that supposedly expired back in '11 or '12. yeah right, fish sauce is heavily fermented, has an extremely high sodium content, etc., etc. it's like soy sauce or worcestershire sauce or vinegar: the stuff basically lasts forever.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
--Hunter S. Thompson

Good point, but I still like making fun of Dan Snyder.

Yeah, I've had a lot of beers that were 'expired'. It would have to be many years before you could even tell a flavor difference. Why waste beer?

I've had terrible beer that wasn't worth the mug it was poured in.

Doesn't that describe Bud Light?  Or really any mainstream American beer?

Once upon a time......

At a Brewers convention in St.Louis MO. The CEO's of Coor's, Budwieser, Millers' and LaBatts' sat down for a late dinner together. When the waiter asked, "what are you having?" the CEO of Coors' said "chefs salad and a Coors lite" The CEO of Budweiser said "A club house with fries and a Bud lite" the CEO of Millers asked for "Surf & Turf with a Miller lite" and the CEO from LaBatt's said "A Mac & cheese with a pepsi." After the waiter departed the Americans turned to the Canadian with surprised looks, the Canadian said' "I noticed your guys weren't drinking beer so I figured I wouldn't bother either."

"Very funny Scotty; now beam down our clothes."
