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 ďwhatever you wantĒ.

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, Iím sure itís all in your head but I swear it tastes skunky. 👎

Where are you located? If you like for a small fee I'll go test drink a few for you.

Drink a 6 pack of new stuff first, then tie into the mouldy case. By then you'll never notice a difference.....or care

Thatís kind of what I do with the neighbours Pilsner. I always drink the nectar of the gods first (Lucky) then I move onto his Pilsner. Come to think of it he does the opposite....

Can you guess what provinces we were originally from?

Lol, it's a toss up which one to start with.

Now Bowen Island, there's a bad beer. No word of a lie, it even made my teeth hurt, and that was after a whole lot of cans of bud were consumed
