Full Answer

To serve chilled beer, it must be stored at 36 to 40 F or about 2 to 4 C. Storing the beer at the proper temperature is important to maintain the beer's level of carbonation when served. It should not be frozen because it will cause its ingredients to break down and flakes to form. As beer becomes colder than 38 degrees Fahrenheit, it gradually loses its distinct flavor, aroma and foam.

    At what temperature does Champagne freeze?

    A:

    Champagne freezes at a slightly lower temperature than water, or between 15 and 22 degrees Fahrenheit. Freezing champagne is not recommended, as doing so can cause the champagne's bottle to explode, and freezing it can ruin the quality of the wine itself. The freezing point of champagne and other wines is lower than that of water because the composition of the liquid is a combination of water and alcohol.
