Can You Put Beer In The Freezer?

The age-old question: can you put in the freezer? I've heard this query countless times. After all, it is a common misconception that refrigerated beer equals better-tasting beer. However, there are some important considerations to take into account when deciding whether or not to put your favorite brew in the freezer.

The Pros of Freezing Beer

Let's start with the positives: putting your beer in the freezer will chill it more quickly than leaving it in the refrigerator. If you need to cool your down rapidly, freezing could be an option. Furthermore, if you have an especially large bottle or can of beer that won't fit into your fridge, freezing may be a necessary solution.

The Cons of Freezing Beer

On the flip side, there are several drawbacks to putting your beer in the freezer. Firstly, leaving it in there too long can cause the container to burst open due to pressure from built-up carbon dioxide gas and expanding liquid inside. This means that any suds that remain frozen will become undrinkable and potentially create a mess in your freezer. Furthermore, if you remove it from the freezer too soon (before it has had time to thaw), then you may end up with an unpleasantly icy drink that lacks flavor and aroma.

Tips for Safely Freezing Beer

If you do decide to freeze your beer for a short period of time (such as 15 minutes or so) then there are several safety tips that should be followed:

  • Make sure that any cans or bottles you plan on freezing are made of strong material like aluminum or glass – plastic containers may not withstand extreme cold temperatures.
  • Be sure to leave enough space at the top of each container so as not to create excess pressure which could lead to breakage or explosion.
  • Check on your beers periodically while they're chilling – remove them from the freezer once they reach desired temperature levels and store them upright (ideally at 45 degrees Fahrenheit).
