This one source - From Micromatic. For the most part keg beer brewed and packaged in kegs in the U.S. is not pasteurized. During the packaging process non pasteurized draft beers are sterile filtered and chilled to the point that any surviving bacteria, which could ferment the beer, become dormant. Kegs are kept cold ( < 50F ) from the brewery to the point of dispense. Draft beer dispensed from a keg should be fresh by storing as short as possible, and serving cold at 38F.

Temperatures above 38F may promote non pasteurized draft beers to turn sour or cloudy. Should the temperature rise above 50F, the dormant bacteria which ferments and spoils beer will once again become active and, subsequent growth will rapidly begin to spoil flavor and cloud the beer

Excellent info!!!

No matter how many Bibles he swears on, when a dog tells you he's a vegetarian, he's lying.

So all the more common beers like Bud and Miller are froofy beers? I thought that referred to beers with names like Tuscan Orange Grapefruit. Personally I don't drink beer very often anymore. But when I do it doesn't matter what anyone else calls it.
