My mother found this after cleaning out a house for an estate sale.  What do you think, crack it open for a thanksgiving toast?

Apparently there's a market for this beer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/282150944601 - as long as it's a half gallon bottle.

It would not be worth as much if you drink it, the experience of drinking it would be wretched. Theo SE beers were not made to last, heck I remember the old man drinking Meisterbrau, and it was cheap stuff back then (he liked cheap beer). Smart money sells sell it as a collectible.

I think you should take it on Antique Roadshow.

Wretched indeed.  Don't open that bottle!

That bottle is 30 or 40 years old?  Last spring my son-in-law gave me a special Budweiser millennium gift set of
4 engraved pilsner glasses that included a special 40 oz. bottle of Budweiser. The set had been passed around in Christmas white elephant parties for 16 years.  The glasses are great but I spit one mouthful of the beer all over the living room carpet.  I guarantee that, if you drink that beer, you will be kneeling in front of the porcelain goddess in ten seconds.

Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.

So you're saying Bud hasn't changed whether it is a 16 year old Bud or a recently produced Bud?  :)

Haha I'm not really going to open it.   I think that it would ruin the mystique of the beer.  I'm not able to fly it back home from CLE to DEN so most likely will be sold to a collector.
