White House Honey Ale bottle yields $1,200 in auction

The single bottle of White House Honey Ale that President Obama presented to Minnesota resident Brad Magerkurth last August has fetched $1,200 at auction, a price usually reserved for rare wines. The President gifted Magerkurth with the bottle during an off-the-record stop at the Coffee Connection in Knoxville, Iowa while on a campaign bus tour through the crucial swing state.

Not a record though

  1. The proceeds were donated to the University of Minnesota’s Amplatz Children’s Hospital. I don’t know if charity auctions are different from “selling” in a legal sense, but it’s a pretty critical detail to the story.
