133 Year Old Beer From Shipwreck To Be Brewed Again


Beer lovers may get a chance to try a brew that’s more than 130 years old, reports The Associated Press.

Bottle from a sunken ship

A bottle from a ship that went down in 1886 was recently opened. The biotechnology students at the State University of New York at Cobleskill are going to try to extract yeast that may be used to recreate the beer.

Who got the bottle and from where?

Serious Brewing Company of Howes Cave’s Bill Felter got the bottle from a customer of his who has several artifacts from the SS Oregon.

The Oregon was sank on March 14, 1886 when it collided with a ship near Fire Island, New York. Only one of the 852 people on the ship from Liverpool, England, to New York City died, according to the AP.

When can the beer be tasted?

There’s no word on when the beer could be produced. And this isn’t the first time that a beer from a shipwreck was able to be recreated.

According to the AP, brewer from Australia made a beer using yeast recovered from a 220-year-old shipwreck.
