The Treasure of the Wallachia: 120-Year-Old Beers Found Beneath the Waves

A regular diver on lost drinks cargos discovered the famous treasure of a 19th-century merchant ship sunk off the Scottish coast. The “Wallachia” had hundreds of beers in its hold… As we know, beer absolutely does not age well: the contents, poured into a large glass, still frothed, but gave off a nasty smell of fermentation. The bottles, after a long stay at “submarine pressure”, also have a tendency to explode when brought to the surface… thus spreading their abominable stink. Research, on the other hand, is perhaps the only winner here: we now know what yeasts were used in that long-ago time.
