I'd sign, but this seems a bit silly. I doubt it'll get released.

And Obama obviously didn't brew the thing, he hired someone to do it. I wouldn't be surprised if NONE of the process ever took place on the White House grounds other than the delivery of the beer to the WH.

And even then, it's private information that Obama doesn't have to release. The filing of a FOI Act request is even sillier. If he was brewing beer on our tax dollars, someone would've made a big deal of it.

If you really wanna know...

5-7 pounds of lies (OG of 1.038 - 1.053)
5 gallons of greed
1-2 ounces of thievery (for a nice bitter taste)
1 packet of special interests
3/4 cup of capitalism for priming

Me too! I'm #2461. That's about 2200 signatures in 4 days. With about 25 days left, we should be able to blow the top off that petition. I wonder if the other forums are "organizing".

And nicely skunked to leave a bad taste in your mouth (like all politics...)

Obama doesn't brew beer......

Sorry to kill your homebrew hard-on over this, but those are the facts kiddies.

I don't know why there are so many haters...

FACT: Homebrew was/is being produced in the White House at the President's request.
FACT: Homebrew was/is being consumed by the standing President
FACT: Homebrewing is being promoted by the standing President

In almost everything a president does he sets ideas in motion which is followed by a lot of hard work by staffers. How is this any different? Frankly, I don't care if it was the White House groundskeeper using a Mr. Beer kit...the above 3 facts make it VERY cool, and are a tremendously good thing for our hobby. Obama *could* have picked to focus on candy making...he'd be out promoting homemade chocolates... Not nearly as good for us!

What? Obama brews beer. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

Otherwise we'd never know about it...
