The President Of Homebrew?

You may have recently seen a feature on CNN about the White House's homebrewed beers. The NY Times and DesMoines Register also covered the news that Pres. Obama is the first US President to have brewed beer in the White House.

From the Times article:

"The honey ale is brewed with honey from the White House beehive and is one of three types of beer produced at the White House, in addition to a blonde ale and a honey porter. (According to the blog Obama Foodorama, Sam Kass, the assistant White House chef, says the porter is “unbelievably good.”) The first family foots the bill for the brewing equipment and production.

President Obama made history last year as the first president to brew beer in the White House. Since then, the beer has been made mostly in small batches for special occasions (or campaign trips), and the recipe has been kept secret."

He's probably the first president since Jefferson to have brewed beer! Check the links above for more about the White House Ales.
