    The short answer here is yes, they are still fine to drink (and you may even like them better). They have likely changed a bit from when they were fresh (especially depending on how they were stored), but they should still be great.

    Five years ago I found a 1975 Penthouse in my basement, hidden above the ceiling tiles. Based on my experience with how the magazine held up over time I have deduced that your bottles will be just fine.

    My guess is that if his bottles are anything like your 70's porn models, the bottles will need a shave.

    I know this is an old thread but no one else was curious about a 61 year old finding beer in a basement? Was this like an archaeological expedition or something?
