Beer recipes usually consist of yeast, hops, barley and water, but this latest beer made by The Danish National Museum and Skands Brewery tastes a little more mature -- 3,000 years, to be exact.

The brew, called 'Egtved Girl's Brew,' is a beer in homage to a Nordic girl who lived during the Bronze Age, and emulates what her and her people probably used to drink in 1,370 BCE.

The brewers found a bark beer bucket buried in an ancient coffin and though they didn't find the exact recipe for it, they tried hard to reciprocate it. The coffin was discovered in Denmark in 1921, and both historians and brewers have since tried to determine the beer’s ingredients from its residue. What they came up with consists of wheat malt, honey and bog myrtle.
