You Can Own an Unopened Beer From the Hindenburg

Illustration for article titled You Can Own an Unopened Beer From the Hindenburg

An unopened bottle of beer recovered from the wreckage of the Hindenburg is up for auction. Again. The 1937 bottle of Lowenbrau sold for over $18,000 back in 2009. The bottle has fire damage, but since the airship had a smoking room, I suppose that could've happened before it crashed.

Definitely not drinkable after all these years. It's probably alcoholic, but the flavor profile is probably gone south...
