Is it legal to sell out of date ale


What do you think?


  1. It is not illegal to sell a product past its Best Before date although as a general rule it is bad practice as the quality comes into question. Ale is a difficult one because so ales will improve with age and survive longer than their Best Before date whilst others do not make it to their best before before they go off.

    Quality control is the key factor. What does it taste like. If you think it has gone it has gone It is not worth selling a dodgy pint.

    If it is good and people are happy with it then it becomes a matter of your opinion.

    Though it is illegal to sell past the Use By and Sell by Date.
