You Will Need
* A cool, dark location

Step 1: Pick location
Select the best spot for your beer cellar. An ideal location may be a closet or a niche in your basement, with little to no light and minimal temperature fluctuations.
The best temperature for aging beer is between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Select beers
Choose the beer you wish to age. Beer suitable for aging generally includes Belgian ales, old ales, imperial stouts, and barley wines.
Step 3: Store your beer
Store your beer upright in boxes or on sturdy shelves.
Step 4: Label beer
Label your beer according to date stored and purchase location.

Purchase two bottles of each beer. Drink one immediately, and then compare it to the aged beer after six to 12 months.
