I'll Just Have a Dr Pepper, Please

Oldest beer may surrender its recipe - "Samples of the world's oldest beer have been examined in Finland to determine its recipe, with plans to brew the historic beverage again, researchers say.

A Baltic Sea shipwreck from between 1800 and 1830 was discovered in July 2010 and yielded many bottles of champagne and five bottles of what proved to be the oldest drinkable beer yet found."

I remember reading about a brewery called Dogfish Head that has made a number of brews based upon remains uncovered in archaeology digs - one, Midas Touch, is based upon a 2700 year old Turkish recipe.
