Bottle of Canadian beer still drinkable after 120 years: researcher

A bottle of beer brewed in Halifax sometime between 1872 and 1890 is just about drinkable but not very good, says researcherA bottle nearly as old as Canada discovered last year contained a bitter-tasting beer that was just about drinkable but not very good, a researcher who tested it said Thursday. The bottle from the “Alexander Keith” brewery was nearly full when a diver recovered it from the bottom of the Atlantic in November. It was brewed in Halifax sometime between 1872 and 1890, just a few years after the birth of the Canadian Confederation in 1867, according to the team that studied it.
