Hope To Make New Beer

From Bottle In Ship’s Hold

Cork Popped Yesterday On 113-Year-Old Artifact

COBLESKILL – A 133-year-old bottle of beer from the shipwrecked SS Oregon was uncorked yesterday afternoon at Serious Brewing Co., Howes Cave, with the intent of duplicating it in a modern beern.

The project is a collaboration of Serious Brewing and SUNY Cobleskill.  If yeast can be extracted from the original beer in the college’s labs, Serious Brewing owner and head brewer Bill Felter intends to develop a new brew using the old yeast.
