Here are some FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) about Vintage Beers

What is the difference between a Vintage Beer (VB) and an ordinary strong beer?

Just as most wine is made to be drunk right away, so are most ordinary beers. Fine vintage wine improves with age. Likewise for these great vintage beers, although very delicious when young, they will improve significantly after a few years of age.

After undergoing extended re-fermentation in the bottle, VBs continue to improve inside the bottle for as long as 15 years depending on their styles and alcohol strengths. The taste of matured vintage beer is very different from ordinary strong ales. A 3-year-old VB for example already has a fascinating aroma, a wonderfully rich taste and a full body.

Fermentation Vat at Vintage Beer Brewery

How does a Vintage Beer improve with age?

Bottle re-fermentation gives the VB its complexity which cannot be achieved with a normal one-shot fermentation. As the yeast feeds on the residual sugars in the beer, the beer loses some of its body and becomes dryer. Even after the yeast runs out of sugar to feed on it contributes to beer’s body, aroma and flavor profile. One of the main flavoring ingredients – hop – carries certain bitterness that mellows down after a few years of ageing allowing the VB to become balanced and round.

Because VBs are fermented on lees, there is a deposit of the yeast in the bottle and they are partly filtered. Ageing potential for VB varies according to their structure and composition. High alcohol content protects the beer against negative effects of bacteria. With as much as 11% in Alcohol-By-Volume (ABV), a VB can easily age for 15 years. If well kept, they can easily preserve if not improve for another decade or more.

What exactly is “Bottle Re-fermentation”?

Fermentation is the transformation of sugars by micro-organisms – yeast – to yield alcohol. This process takes place in big tanks, called fermentation tanks. VBs undergo another round of fermentation not in these tanks but inside the bottles, hence the term bottle re-fermentation (or sometimes called bottle conditioning).

Yeast is added during bottling to provoke re-fermentation inside the bottle. The yeast that is kept in the bottle provides a good source of vitamin B which gives the VB a very special aroma. Since it is re-fermented in bottles, like Champagne, there is no oxidation because the yeast that eats the sugar also eats up the oxygen. This preserves the freshness of VB while it ages for many years.

Vintage Beers Ageing in Wine Cellars of Yats

How do I cellar my Vintage Beers?

Keep your VBs like you would for your vintage Champagne and Sparkling wine. Ideally, you should lay them on their sides in a cool cellar totally away from any direct contact with sunlight. That’s easy if you happen to own a chateau in Bordeaux with a cave the size of a tennis court. For some of us who might have to cut a few small corners, the good news is that VBs are incredibly resilient to oxidation. If you can avoid sharp intraday temperature fluctuation and direct contact with sunlight, lay them down on their sides and they will mature nicely for many years.
