Is it just me, or does anyone else see the irony of placing the phrases 'Beechwood Aged' and 'Freshness Dated' both on the same beercan label? What's wrong with this picture?

Beechwood aged just means the beer is made with woodchips that give it the comming out of a wooden barrel taste, freshness dating is just the use by date before the beer tastes funny.

Back when I visited a huge brewer in virginia a few years ago they aged some of their beer (cold brewed MGD I think it was) in HUGE stainless tanks and they had woodchips in there for the taste.

If you like domestic beer I suggest you take a tour of one of their facilities, its very interesting. They also have free tasting of all the different beers they make there at the end of the tour.
