An intact beer bottle from the early 20th century has been found in a 6th-century church in Cornwall.

“There is a small amount of the original beer left in the bottle. So, who knows, we might even be able to work out which of Walter’s ales played its small part in the conservation of this site.”

Undamaged and in pristine condition, the bottle features a swastika-inscribed top. A popular feature of brewers in the 19th and early 20th century, the Sanskrit symbol for brewing and fertility was later abandoned when appropriated by the Nazis.
