How can I tell when my beer was packaged?

It’s in our best interest to make sure you’re drinking fresh beer, so trust us, we do our best. But if your beer doesn’t taste quite right, check the Julian date on the bottle shoulder (just above the label). The first three digits represent the day of the year (out of 365) and the fourth digit represents the year the bottle was produced.
