Via Sci-News:

“Compared to modern beers, the shipwreck beers contained similar levels of potassium but 15- to 60-fold more sodium, presumably derived from sea water. This may have diluted the beers up to 30%,” the scientists wrote in the paper published in the Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry.

“Ethanol contents were low (2.8-3.2%) compared to typical modern lagers and ales. The mass ratios of glycerol and ethanol were 4.5% for both shipwreck beers, which is typical for a yeast fermentation product.”

Dr Gibson and his colleagues analyzed samples from two bottles recovered in the shipwreck.

They determined that the samples were different beers based on their hop content.

Made from the fermented sap of the maguey plant, Pulque has been brewed in central Mexico for over a millennia. The color makes me think it's coconut flavored, but it's supposed to have a "sour, yeast-like flavor." No thank you.

Arguably the oldest pub still operating in the United States, the White Horse Tavern was founded in 1673, and once you walk through the door you feel as though you've been transported 200 years back in time.
