Hindenburg airship beer auctioned

A new kind of smoked beer...?

A blackened bottle of beer found in the wreck of the Hindenburg zeppelin is expected to fetch thousands of pounds at auction.

The bottle was found by a fire-fighter cleaning up the American airfield where the German airship exploded in 1937.

The bottle will be the most expensive ever bought if it meets its estimated price of £5,000 ($8,337) on Saturday.

The winning bid was £9,400 plus £1,410 in costs. That's just over $18,000.
