Beer Specific Questions

Oatmeal Stout Locations
The Oatmeal Stout is available year-round, but only on draught at a limited number of locations.  Never fear, we have a nifty beer finder to help you locate this nitro wonder!

Where can I find the date code?
Summit has an “Enjoy By” date to be found on one of the long sides of each case and 12-pack. It should be at the top upper, right-hand corner on one of the sides. It is only on one side so it may be necessary to turn a package to see it. There is no date on individual 6-packs, but each Summit bottle has an “Enjoy By” date video-coded on the neck of the bottle just above the shoulder.  For cans, the “Enjoy By” date is on the underside of the can.

The packaging date is also laser printed in the upper left corner of the label. There are 8 characters. The first 4 are the packaging date expressed as a Julian date – the first character is the year and the next three are the numerical day of the year. The final four characters are simply the time that bottle was filled.

Can I order Summit ales and lagers directly from you?
Unfortunately, we are not permitted to sell or ship beer directly to consumers. Please use our Beer Finder page to find a store in your area.

What’s the difference between an ale and a lager?
The difference between ales and lagers has nothing to do with strength, color, or bitterness. It’s the yeast and the fermentation temperature. Ale yeasts ferment best at warmer temperatures — up to about 75° F. Because a yeasty foam rises to the surface of the beer, these are known as “top-fermenting” yeasts.

Lager yeasts, on the other hand, prefer cooler temperatures. They are called “bottom-fermenting” yeasts because they sink to the bottom of the beer during the cold storage period traditional for lager beers. This process removes haze and gives lagers their characteristic clean, rounded tastes.
