President Barack Obama, all politics aside, is a trail blazer.
Not only has he read every Harry Potter book, but he is the first president to have beer brewed in the White House.
The blog Obama Foodorama reported this week that the 44th president served homemade ”White House Honey Ale” at a Super Bowl party in January. The beer was brewed in the White House.
The honey came from Michelle Obama’s garden beehive, another White House first. About 100 12-ounce bottles were served and all were gone by the end of the party.
The Foodorama article says Obama is the first president since George Washington to homebrew beer, and since Washington never lived in the White House, Obama (or his chef) is the first to stew up a hoppy concoction at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The White House will release the recipe after a few tweaks.
Obama is a renowned drinker of beer at high profile meetings. We need to send that man a case of Atlanta-made SweetWater, seeing the leader of the free world drink foreign-owned Budweiser is damaging to our national psyche.
