World's oldest beer recovered from shipwreck

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.

However, experts doubt the old beer would still be drinkable… and that the divers might have been suffering from 'the bends' which could have impacted their taste-buds.
