Can I stored previously chilled beer at room temperature?

Had a party, too much Bud Lite left over to leave in the fridge. We don't drink it. Will it skunk the beer if I take the cans out of the fridge and store them at room temperature?

    No, it won't skunk the Bud Lite; although this change in temp might damage a beer that hasn't been so rigorously removed of the living things that make beer wonderful (no offense intended toward drinkers of Bud).

      Bud will get cooled and brought back to room temp during it's production and transport anyway.

        Just don't subject the beer to temperature extremes and the beer will be fine. The cold-to-warm-spoil theory is a bit of an urban legend.
