Beer Cellaring article on some clickbait site

"Aging beer encourages simple flavors to expand and evolve right inside the bottle, resulting in uniquely delicious brews."
Nope. Simple flavors don't turn magically delicious after sitting for a year or two.

"Sour beers are brewed with natural preservatives like aged hops" :facepalm:
Sure traditional lambics are, but "sour beers" aren't.

I feel like articles like this spread misinformation, even though they are mostly correct.
It gives the impression that cellaring magically makes beers better, but it doesn't. :shrug:
