The Mystery of the Exploding Bottle
Here’s a strange one. I picked up a couple of bottles of Dearfield Ale for my parents. Dearfield is a strawberry blonde ale made by Crabtree Brewing in Greeley, CO and only comes in 22oz bombers. Since they don’t drink beer too often, Ma and Pa stuck these bottles in the pantry. Fast forward a month or so, and we have this…
When the bottle broke, there was a loud pop followed by an explosion of beer all over the pantry. Can anyone explain to me why this would happen to a bottle of beer? I’d like to avoid it in the future.
Some more info on Dearfield Ale and the town it’s named after can be found here.
