Are you worth your weight in pivo?

I came upon this article on the BBC today. 

US father sells daughter for beer

A man has been arrested in California after allegedly arranging for his 14-year-old daughter to marry a neighbour in exchange for beer, meat and $16,000.
Beer, meat and money sounds like a fair tradeoff for a person- more varied and valuable than just trading people for camels or something.

This article made me think- are you worth your weight in pivo? How much beer do you think could be fairly traded for your person?

she must have been very hot, or the neighbor was very ugly, or the man was seriously in debt.
