What could the 1937 Hindenburg disaster have to do with luxury? A little birdie tells us, there is a lot in fact. When the LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and crashed, of the 97 on board, 35 people on board perished. However a clever fire fighter salvaged bottles of beer from the wreckage back then in 1937 when it came crashing down. The Hindenburg beer or how it is now famous was Lowenbrau beer and 6 bottles and a pitcher were recovered in total. One of the bottles is now up for auction and is estimated to fetch $8,337.
The Hindenburg beer will be the most expensive beer ever to be sold in the world and of course you cannot drink it. Unlike wine, beer doesn’t taste great with age. However, you would certainly want to buy this blackened bottle of beer since it has historical value and is also the most expensive bottle of beer in the world. Many of you may think it would be rather disappointing to not be able to drink the most expensive beer of the world.
If you feel like that, you could try the world’s most expensive beer which can actually be drunk. The 12-litre bottle of Vieille Bon Secours ale comes with a brewski which tastes of a complex citric, caramel and toffee flavour. Muir Picken at the Belgo Restaurant where the bottles are available reveals that each bottle costs $1,170. You could also check out Carlsberg’s Vintage No. 2 beer which is also ridiculously expensive.
