A blackened bottle, found by a firefighter, is up for auction. Why? This particular bottle is Hindenburg beer, or more accurately, a recovered bottle of beer from the Hindenburg airship that exploded in 1937.

The Hindenburg beer is actually Lowenbrau beer. Six bottles and a pitcher were recovered from the wreckage. Estimated to sell for $8,337, this Hindenburg beer will be the most expensive bottle of beer ever sold (and it’s contents are probably putrid).
