Plenty of stories in the news when the Obamas wanted homemade beer in the White House...while they paid out of pocket for the gear, the White House Chef/kitchen staff made the beer, not the Prez. It was a Honey Ale, not a mead.
Brew off sounds good, but I think beer is below Mitt, he would want to make a wine! Of course as a Mormon, he would not be able to drink it though!
