I actually buy mine frozen from a small local store that makes their own homemade dough and sauce. I take the dough out in the morning before work and put it in a oiled bowl cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge until I get home from work then let the bowl sit on the top of the fridge until I am ready to make the pizza.

Dough freezes well, but for one day you're better off keeping it in the fridge. The flavor will improve with a day in the fridge, and that is not enough time to give it a beery smell. From my experience, doughs don't start to get a beery smell unless they overrise and the yeast dies. This is not likely to happen overnight in the fridge.

I know of many pizza bakers who will not even consider using pizza dough on the first day that it is made - it needs time to let the flavors develop.

I hope you realize that a plastic shopping bag is not "food grade" and chemicals from it are probably leeching into the dough. Of course that may give it flavor.
