The Danish National Museum has partnered with Denmark's Skands Brewery in order to create a Egtved Girl's Brew, which is a beer that has been reconstructed from samples found in a 3,300-year-old coffin. The Egtved girl was about 16-18-years old and was from the Nordic Bronze Age. Scientists decided to scrap together what was left of her body from her coffin into this ancient brewski.

Wheat malt, bog myrtle and cranberries are the basis of the beer to create a contemporary taste. The Danish National Museum created this brew, which will be available in the museum's shop and online for a few dollars. I'm sure the young girl would be very happy that her remains are being made into a beer that everyone can enjoy.
