137-year-old beer found

According to a news story on Yahoo, a 137-year-old beer was found at Worthington's White Shield brewery in Burton-on-Trent, England! It was part of a cache of vintage bottles, so they popped one open to take a sip. Those are some lucky bastards!!

The beer was about 10% alcohol and got rave reviews. Just goes to show, big beers like barleywine age well. The wine crowd no doubt hasn't lowered their noses enough to see the headlines yet...
