Two notable "surface" beer finds in my career, the "Petersen" porter was exposed on sandbar after a flood 30 years ago (won a race with my brother to claim it), the "Mason & Burns" top was protruding from mud on bank of the Chickahominy River. Have found numerous crown top on surface and a few blobs/loops. Did also find alot of good surface stuff when I was kid on banks of Ohio River, good times...

Sorry to say but I did not find this beer, my wife did. She was out for a walk in our woods and just laying on the ground was this blob beer. It is Silver Creek Brewery Guelph, this is a precursor to the Sleeman Brewery from Guelph. Cleaned up very nice and had the wire bale in tact and working.

I noticed a "hint" of blue along a slope I was walking and looking for bottles. Thinking it was just a shard of some common broken blue bottle, such as milk of magnesia, etc. I walked over to it and noticed the blue protrusion was round. At that point I pulled out this beer realizing I had never found a cobalt beer, let alone one that only needed gentle cleaning.

Hellacious finds, everybody. About all I have to offer is this pontiled black glass dip mold blown beer or porter that I found many years ago laying on the bottom of a shallow creek.
