Beer and the Ocean, Perfect Together

The ocean gives life and...beer! According to CNN, the oldest bottle of beer has been found, preserved for over a hundred and fifty years in the cold waters of the Baltic Sea near the Aland Islands and Finland. Another mystery of the deep to fire the imagination.

Was it a gift to smooth an unwelcome matrimony between two courts or simply one royal beer lover sharing a few bottles with his counterpart in another land? Did the crew pinch a bottle or two along the way and steer the boat awry? Who made it? Is it a pilsner or a lager? Can I taste it? Please?

Looks Like an Ancient Amber
