I have in my possession an unopened bottle of Anheuser Busch root beer, presumably from the 20's when they produced it as a result of prohibition.

Anyone have any idea what this might be worth to a collector? A bit of the lable is missing on the bottom but otherwise it's in good condition...

Any idea what 80 year old root beer tastes like? Very Happy

thanks for your input!

Aaron

From what I can find online, you paid about $50 for it, so you know it's worth at least that. (to you)

I would bet someone would give you $100 just for you to drink it. Double your money right there.

That alone would solve both your questions, what it's worth AND what it tastes like.

I definitely wouldn't recommend tasting it...

Ha! thanks for your answers! I think for now I'll just keep it on my bar shelf: unopened and undrunk! Smile
