Beer Bottle from Hindenburg World’s Most Expensive

A singed bottle of beer recovered from the ashes of the Hindenburg disaster in 1937 is expected to fetch between $4,000 to $8,000 at auction this weekend–the highest price ever for a bottle of beer.

Though most of the 62-year-old suds remain in the bottle, auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said the contents of the Lowenbrau bottle, discovered by a New Jersey firefighter in 1937 at the site of the airship’s historic disaster, are undrinkable.

“It would taste putrid,” said Aldridge. About 20 percent of the beer evaporated from the bottle. Some of the label is still intact and you can make out “Lowenbrau” and “Munich.”

Crikey Dave,
Why on earth would anyone buy a beer that you can’t drink?
Especially at that price.
That kind of money would be a LOT of beer that you could drink.

Cheers,
Mike.
