A couple of friends were out fishing on the river last week when one of their lines got snagged on something on the bottom of the river. Expecting there to be a stick or a random piece of garbage on the end, they were surprised to see that they had instead reeled in a six pack of Budweiser!

Sadly, the beer had been at the bottom of the river for quite some time and the cans were filled with sand and water instead of beer. Budweiser says that the cans are at least 60 years old.

Watch the news story below, which actually aired on television, to see some great witty takes on beer, fishing and life. This, folks, is news.
