World's Oldest Beer Discovered in Baltic Sea

Is it cold yet?

According to earlier reports, the champagne found in the same wreck was very drinkable, so the beer is probably at the perfect temperature for drinking.

I'll settle for my Redhawk Ale.

I have no choice, really.

Actually, that's Eye of the Hawk, from the Mendocino Brewing Company.

Since they have not offered to send me a sample of their discovery, I shall also 'make do' with items from such places as the Mendocino Brewing Company....currently White Hawk IPA. And a wonderful discovery of Samuel Adams Double Bock! Yum!

Still, it will be interesting to see what they learn from this discovery.

It will also be interesting to see how drunk Shane can get on beer that is this old. I hope it hasn't gone skunky.

Wouldn't Jones's Ale have been older ?

How do you double Bock?

You 'double' Bock by adding extra flavor by using extra malt and sometimes other ingredients.

I believe this is the same shipwreck- the beer has been tasted:
