Two bottles of Hair of the Dog Dave go for potentially record-breaking $4,525

Hair of the Dog Dave(Portland, OR) – In modern day craft beer auctions, Saturday’s sale of Hair of the Dog Dave appears to be a new record.

Hair of the Dog Brewing founder and owner, Alan Sprints, shared the news on Facebook that the total yield for two 375ml bottles sold through a silent auction (two separate lots) was $4,525.56. The higher of the two bids was $2,368.73, approximately $187 per ounce of liquid.

Starting bids were set at $1,400 each.

Proceeds of the auction go to Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Though a record for most expensive craft beer is not tracked with any official authority, BeerPulse previously reported this year that Midnight Sun M sold for $1,525 and reported in 2010 that another bottle of Dave sold for $1,571.

Vintage collectible beer has sold for a greater amount of money. One example: a single bottle of Allsopp’s Arctic Ale sold for over $500,000 back in 2007 were listed for $500k but didn’t actually sell according to Antique Week.
