Agreed-this is more awesome to find than a bunch of coins. Someone could reverse-engineer the beer recipe (and even potentially use the same cultures used in these old beer bottles-doubt it is drinkable due to age but we could be on the verge of recreating a brew from 200 years ago). This kind of thing has been done before, with other alcoholic beverages-a friend of mine made some mead (fermented honey beverage) made from a 15th century Viking recipe one time.
