Beer that has been submerged for around 170 years, preserved on the seabed at a depth of 50 meters, is due to be reproduced. It is one of the world’s oldest preserved beers and was salvaged from an early 19th century shipwreck discovered in 2010 in the Åland archipelago southwest of Finland.

The beer has been studied by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the original recipe will be recreated by the Stallhagen brewery of Åland. The brewery is currently developing the recipe and production is due to start later this year, with the aim of launching a new version of the famous shipwreck beer in June 2014. Johan Ehn, Minister for Culture at the Åland Government, said:

First of all, we are happy to establish cooperation with a local company. We are also pleased to have reached an agreement with Stallhagen guaranteeing that part of the financial surplus generated by the sale of each beer bottle will go to charitable causes. The Government of Åland has decided that the surplus will go to marine archaeological work and environmental measures for improving the quality of water in the seas.
