An old cold one
Divers have recovered what’s thought to be the world’s oldest beer from a 200-year-old shipwreck in the Baltic Sea.
The find was made as researchers recovered drinkable Champagne from a Russian cargo ship which crashed in the 1780s.
The divers say they were surprised to find a handful of beer bottles during the salvage operation near the Aland Islands.
When one of the bottle just so happened to break, the divers tried some of the dark liquid and say they liked the taste.
