UMBcrew. True, beer doesn't age like wine/whiskey/scotch. However, you have to realize that those spirits are designed to HAVE to age for at least many many years. Beer, on the other hand, does get better with age but it really depends on the STYLE of beer. I.e. some barrel aged offerings (i.e. Three Floyds Darklord, Big Sky Ivan the Terrible) actually get better with a few years of aging, this allows the intense ABV to 'mellow' out and become more integrated. Also, a lot of lambics and sours are designed to be able to be aged for over 20 years. On the flip side, beer styles like IPAs, double IPA's, wheat beers, pale ales, or anything else 'hop heavy' should be consumed soon after bottling as the 'hoppiness' will fade after a few months of being brewed. Again, it really comes down to style and quality of brew.
