A 133-year-old bottle of beer recovered from a 19th century shipwreck might soon be getting new life.
Right now, students at a college in upstate New York are working on extracting strains of yeast from the bottle.
If they're successful, a nearby brewery, Serious Brewing, will then attempt to make a new beer with that historic yeast.
