Bud and Miller buying it up, relabeling, and adding the word lite so pee-water drinkers will buy it.

Can the alcohol be de-stilled out of it? If so, why not do that and use the alcohol to make crap stuff like
fortified wine and cheap vodak..

This has already happened here. Before we reopened our outdoor dining, we had to throw out all the kegs in our walk-in. It was all out of date. Thankfully, our distributor comped us on the full kegs and replaced them, and they gave us half credit for the tapped ones. Beer has a shelf life, and the public should be glad that a place puts their customer's needs first.

Beer doesn't really have a shelf life if you store it correctly. Every batch of beer I've brewed, I've kept a couple aside to drink at least 2 years later, and they've been perfectly fine. As a matter of fact, my first batch, when I was having trouble keeping the temp in the proper range and ended up with a fruity ester was smooth and perfect after aging in the fridge for a few years.

But...

The FDA does require expiration dates on all food products now, which is why you see salt with an expiration date, so if it's past that date, it's considered "bad".

But I've had plenty of beer that was years old, and the only issue has been when it wasn't refrigerated and got too warm for months on end, like sitting in the garage in the summer in AZ.
