Some very industrious students from the State University of New York at Cobleskill, are working on a new craft beer project based on a recipe from a 133 year old Brew. The SS Oregon was en route from Liverpool, England, to New York City with 852 people aboard on March 14, 1886, when it collided with a schooner near Fire Island, New York, and sank. All but one person survived.
Based on this article, at least one bottle of Beer survived as well. The Biochem. students form SUNY got their hands on it and are attempting to extract yeast in order to recreate the historical libation. If they are successful, the Serious Brewing Company of Howes Cave plan on producing it as a brand new brew.
