What Is Cold Filtered Beer and What Does Cold Filtered Beer Mean?

Cold filtered beer is just an advertising term and clever marketing.

All beer is “cold filtered”, it just means using fine screens to remove particulates, including microbes.

If combined with sterile handling, the filtering eliminates bacteria, which means that the beer doesn’t have to be pasteurized.

Unpasteurized beer can legally be labeled “draft” beer, even though it comes in bottles and cans instead of being drawn from kegs.

    im new at all this so this question may seem funny.
    can i use a freezing process to remove water and raise the alcohol %. I am thinking water freezes before alcohol thus leaving the alcohol behind, can this be safely done or am i barking up the wrong tree?
