The date stamp on the bottom of this bottle is'56', which would make this bottle 64 years old.In 1969, the promoters of the iconic Woodstock Music & Art Festival, commonly known as the Woodstock Festival, were desperate to find a venue for their event when the Hudson Valley community of Wallkill revoked their permits for fear that a large crowd would be too disruptive to the community. Woodstock promoter Michael Lang scouted potential sites in southeastern New York's countryside and identified a pasture on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel/White Lake, NY, as the perfect venue because of its natural bowl shape and adjacent farmland that could serve as campgrounds and a helicopter pad for bringing performers to the stage. Yasgur agreed to Lang's proposal, and the rest is history. More than a half-million people converged on Yasgur's farm on Aug.
