Craft Beer Poll: To Age Or Not To Age? That Is The Question!

Craft Beer Poll: To Age or Not To Age? That Is The Question!

I recently made a trip to Kress Liquors in Cherry Hill, NJ, and while scanning the import wall, I came across a bottle of Fuller’s 2010 Vintage Ale. I have had the Fuller’s London Porter and the Gale’s Prize Old Ale, so the brewery wasn’t an unknown, but to be completely honest, I was drawn to the Fuller’s 2010 Vintage Ale because of the elegant packaging. When I brought the bottle home, I was about to crack it open, but before doing that, I decided to read the marketing material. Curse my inquisitive nature and rudimentary reading abilities!

Fuller’s suggests that while the bottle can be consumed immediately, you should lay the beer down and enjoy it when it peaks in 3 to 4 years. Although we have had several discussions on this site with our friend Miracle Max concerning the merits of aging beer (click here and here to read them), I’m not sure what I should do.

Rather than wrestle with this dilemma on my own, I thought I would ask you, our loyal readers, for some advice. Please take a moment to answer our poll. Thanks in advance for all your help!
