They should send it to the distilleries. Stale beer is perfectly serviceable wort.

I'm unfamiliar with this term "undrinkable".

I'm no stranger to drinking skunky beer. Send it to me.

That's probably a 15 minute supply.

Beer expires? My uncle had some of that generic "beer" in his fridge for years. I drank a couple after his funeral. It was awful, but I just assumed it was supposed to taste that way. He probably spent less than $1.50 for a six-pack.

Apparently once a keg is opened, the beer only lasts 2 weeks.

That makes no sense. I owned a couple of restaurants years ago and we didn't change out kegs for as long as a couple of months depending on the type. We never had any complaints.

A keg tapped with a hand pump will go bad in a day.

A keg hooked up to a kegerator does not introduce oxygen, so the beer will stay as fresh as if it hadn't been tapped.

Beer "expiration" dates are a suggestion from the manufacturer based on what they think their product should taste like. It's really a best by date, not an expiration date. Beer does not expire in the same way as milk or meat. It will just taste awful after enough time has passed.
