all i can say is take a sip and see, 2 months is longer than preferable but as long as they havent been cold hot cold hot, they might be ok

As long as they have never been refrigerated, go ahead and put them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Crack them open and enjoy! Sláinte!

Sam Adam’s company gives most of their beer a 6 month “freshness” date… they say for optimum taste, but honestly, people find sealed beers that are hundreds of years old and are still good.

Beer getting warm, cold, warm cold does NOTHING to the quality. That is a myth. The big killer of beer is light. Sam Adams beers have brown bottles so that’s one good thing going for them. Hopefully they were kept in the dark but even if not, 2 months is not long. Should be OK
