You better believe presidential beer comes with an unbelievable price tag, but just how much?

In a recent charity auction a single bottle of home-brewed White House Honey Ale fetched $1,200. President Obama originally gave the brew to Brad Magerkurth, 42, last August while on the campaign trail in Knoxville, Iowa.

The Minnesota resident who is a home brewer and beer salesman donated his prized beer bottle to the University [of Minnesota’s] Amplatz Children’s Hospital auction.

A group of ten people chipped in to share the rare treasure, and cracked the beer open to share it on the stage.

Cheers to that!
