Three years later, while I was helping him move, I discovered that same six pack of home brewed beer in the root cellar. I popped the cap on the first bottle, poured it into a glass and tasted it. I swear by all that is pure and holy that the three year old beer tasted exactly like Watney's Red Barrel beer. I can tell you that we made quick work of that six pack.
    I'd definately agree that unpasteurized home brew that has active yeast has the potential for a much longer shelf life (assuming its at a controlled tempurature and kept away from light) and can take quite a while to "mature".
