Default White House Beer Recipe

I saw this today, but for some reason all of the threads that show when you search for "White House Beer" seems to be missing.

Either way, if 25,000 signatures are received by 9/17, they will release the White House Beer recipe.

Story:
GROESBECK, TX. (WTVR)—After some applied pressure, the White House announced that beer enthusiasts might soon get their hands on the presidential recipe.

Jay Carney, White House spokesperson, recently announced on Twitter that the administration will unveil the beer’s recipe once a petition for the request receives 25,000 signatures by September 17.

Got a Q today on @wethepeople petition asking us to share WH beer recipe: wh.gov/4y9b If it reaches the threshold, we'll release it
23 Aug 12"

President Obama made headlines when he revealed he drinks beer that’s specially-brewed in the White House.

“It is ice-cold and tasty,” the president said about his preferred White House Honey Ale.

Beer fans immediately started begging for the recipe but Mr. Obama has declined to release it. A White House petition was started, in hopes of getting the information.

Limestone County Assistant District Attorney Brody Burks, who is also a home brewer, drafted up a Freedom of Information Act request for the recipe. A picture of the FOIA was placed on Reddit, and that’s when the story went viral.

The Texas man thinks that this is the best way to obtain the recipe, because if said recipe exists as a federal document, the government is required to release it.

“I brew my own beer in my backyard. So I figured maybe I could learn a few things from our president,” Burks said.

Thousands have signed the official White House petition that Carney mentioned. Right now the petition has just over 9,100 signatures and so it needs more than 15,000.

The FOIA certainly wasn’t filed without some fanfare and humor in mind. The end of the request says: “Also, if you could send me a copy autographed by the President, you’d be the coolest FOIA officer in the whole federal government, and who could resist that title?”

Under the Freedom of Information Act, The White House has ten days to at least respond to Burks’ request. Until then Burks is keeping his fingers crossed.

“My beer is OK, but I would like to try the president’s to see if it’s any better,” Burks told CBS affiliate KWTX.

One known element, aside from the hops, is the honey that comes from bees that live on the south lawn of the White House.

Default Obama is going to release his Honey Ale recipe!

http://bites.today.com/_news/2012/08...a-filers-react

Obama is set to release his honey ale recipe. Anyone interesting in brewing up a batch? My buddy is a huge obama slurper so I will certainly be doing a batch when the recipe comes out. Apparently he has a couple other recipes as well. Cheers!

And really?! It takes a petition to get a recipe for some crappy brew....doesn't sound much like a homebrewer to me.

Oh, he's good. He's very good. Not only is he able to get people to drink his cool-aid, now he's figured out how to make them brew it for themselves!!!

The responses to the last thread merged here are exactly why we aren't allowing further discussion. In a 15 minute time span, four childish replies.
