The $2000, 12 Ounce Beer

Hair of the Dog’s “Dave” went in sale at the brewery in Portland, Oregon today.

You might say, who cares. Well, your wallet might. A bottle of it will run you around $2000 dollars.

The 29% Barleywine was made in 1994, by the freezing technique that you see used in eisbocks. By freezing off the water, the remaining liquid is higher in abv.

Obviously, over multiple freezes you are losing sellable volume. Making what is left behind even more valuable.

Today, the rarity went on sale for a hefty price tag. Apparently there is a $500 discount if you drink it on site.

P.S.- that’s for 12 ounces.
