What is Vintage Beer?

Vintage beer is beer that has been purposely aged in order to enhance or change its flavor. The beers that are best to cellar or vintage are above 8% alcohol by volume. The only exception to the abv rule are sour beers (geuze & lambics) which can be much lower gravity and age much longer (up to 15 years!). Most beers are at their peak between 3-5 years. Besides being over 8% or sour, ideal beers to age are bottle conditioned. When a beer is bottle conditioned it means the brewer has added additional yeast to naturally carbonate and change the beer after being capped or corked.

Different beers react differently to being aged. Hops will always fade in a vintaged beer, so unless the beer would benefit from having less bitterness, we don’t recommend aging hoppy beers. Imperial stouts and Belgian beers are excellent for aging because the high alcohol “hotness” fades and more delicate and complex flavors can come through. Aging should be done with the bottles upright at 61-67 degrees. Learn more about the The Beer Cellar from Atlanta Magazine!
