Finish Brewery to Replicate 200 Year Old Beer

Stallhagen Brewery in Aaland, Finland, will replicate a beer brewed in the early 19th century found in a Baltic Sea ship wreck in 2010. According to the folks who analyzed the beer, it is a pale ale similar to the types of beer available now. But analysis does not tell what types of grain were used. So I guess they're not replicating it after all.

The beer was found to be still drinkable, that's to the constant 41°F temperature, low currents and darkness in the wreck. They also found some champagne, which has since been sold at auction. The ship sank sometime between 1825 and 1830.
