most people genuinely want low-taste & low-cost lager.
FTFY

Then why not make a "killer" low taste/low cost lager? I'll be the first to admit I like shitty beer too, as long as it's shitty beer that's supposed to taste shitty; Budweiser, high life, rolling rock, etc... What's terrible is when people make beer that's supposed to taste good (7 locks) and it tastes worse than the previous mentioned beers.

Killer low taste is like one of those jumbo shrimp things, no?

This year's bourbon county is quite good. I drank one and am cellaring another. I'd love to get more but it seems to be sold out everywhere.

We are so excited to announce a very special partnership between Tired Hands Brewing Company and our very own Neighborhood Restaurant Group in Washington, DC. Beginning as early as December 5th, we will be rolling out the outstanding ales and lagers of Tired Hands on draft exclusively at our DC locations, including Birch & Barley/ ChurchKey, GBD, The Partisan, Red Apron - Union Market and Iron Gate; upon opening, The Sovereign will also feature a number of drafts from Tired Hands!

 Our friends Jean Broillet and his wife Julie Foster founded Tired
 Hands Brewing Company in 2011, crafting small batches of consistently exceptional ales out of their brewpub and cafe in Ardmore, PA. Just recently, they expanded to open Fermentaria, a production brewery and restaurant located in an old trolley-repair shop two blocks from the original brewpub. With this expansion, Tired Hands has increased their brewing capacity from 1500 to 5000 barrels right away, with an additional 5000 barrels of production on the horizon.

 This increased capacity also means that DC will finally get to taste a range of Tired Hands on tap exclusively through our 5 (and soon to be 6) DC bars and restaurants!

 We are proud to be showcasing the following 6 Tired Hands brews on draft throughout December, beginning this weekend. Please follow the Twitter and Facebook feeds of each our our locations, as well as checking up on their online draft lists, to find out who is pouring what, and when!

 The Tired Hands December DC Draft List!

 Tired Hands SaisonHands

I wonder if that deal was done before or after they were bought by Constellation Brands...

Probably six months... I don't think it will be awful if it sits a bit longer, but I know the Victory and Westbrook Gose suggest six months.

I just drank a victory about a week ago that said drink by October and it still tasted delicious.

gose in a can should last a long time.  little to no oxidation with the can and low pH of the beer will protect it from infection.
