Default On Ebay: 1852 ALLSOPP's ARCTIC ALE

Oldest known bottle of beer that is full and sealed. Pretty interesting story about it being an IPA for the long arctic voyages.

Now the only question I would have if I happened to have 150k to blow on a bottle of 150 year old beer is....should I drink a "Museum Quality" beer. I'm not much of a collector so I think I'm gonna drink it

I actually read a cool article on drinking a beer from 1869. They said it was flat but the taste was extremely complex and malty. Bitterness was almost gone, but still there. THey were talking about all sorts of wierd tastes, but they wanted to lick the bottle clean.

I'd video tape the drinking session... and I would take in little sips over the course of an hour.
