Food Nerd News: Ancient Beer Found in Shipwreck! Let’s Name It!

I’m sure if you’re a beer freak you read the news about the “five bottles of dark, foamy beer” found while divers were salvaging champagne from a19th century shipwreck near Finland’s Aland Islands. The beer is being studied and there are plans to brew the beer. I think we should have a contest to name the beer. Read the story and submit a name below. GO.

    Since it will be nasty and skunky name it Stella Artois.
