Taking the concept of “cellaring” beer to a whole new level, divers have discovered perfectly preserved bottles of brew in a shipwreck at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Estimated to be about 200 years old, the beer was kept at a constant, near-freezing temperature in pitch black conditions which prevented it from spoiling. And the best part? The yeast cultures used in the fermentation process appear to still be alive! A brewer could easily cultivate the strain to allow others brewers to have access to this early 19th-century yeast. Very cool.
Also, they found some champagne. But who gives a shit about that?
