Default Pink mould inside case of beer.

So I bought a 18 pack of popular name brand beer Friday night. Opened the box up to find that there why appears to be pink mould on the cans and inside of box, stringy pink stuff that looks like pink cotton candy.

Contacted the manufacturer and they said they would reimburse me for the purchase, asked the rep what to do with said beer and they said “whatever you want”.

Would you drink it or dump it?

Are all the cans bottles sealed? If so at least try it. Better than a mouse in the bottle.

Wash them down with bleach water, rinse, refrigerated, drink. It's not like there will be mold inside.

Probably.

If the cans are sealed wash them in a vinegar or bleach solution and tip away.

Likely a can in another case stacked above it got punctured and yours got leaked on.

I would pour the can of beer into the large beer glass first... then add vodka in equal parts. That will kill all bad mould that might be inside. Drink up! In Russia, we call it yorsh..... Very popular drink among alcoholics!

Never destroy beer needlessly.

Wipe the cans off and drink it. That mould is probably the cleanest stuff on those cans by the time they get packaged.

Everything was sealed, no visible stains or damage to the box or anything like that.

I cleaned the can off well and tried one, I’m sure it’s all in your head but I swear it tastes skunky. 👎
