We recommend you store and serve your beer from a cool, dry place like a garage (around 13°C is perfect - your fridge is too cold) where spillage won’t damage surfaces… and don’t forget to keep your beer out of direct sunlight!

In warm conditions, the beer bag may swell slightly. No problem, just open and close the tap to release air.
