Looks like President Obama is a homebrewer, or at least has the interest in it! I find it hard to believe he actually brews the beer, but still pretty cool.

Guess he has something in common with the founding fathers after all!

Isn't it illegal to transport homebrew across state lines?

Whether the POTUS brews or not, he has gained exposure for home brewers.

Even if he doesn't do the work but let's his kitchen staff do it for him, at least he acknowledges homebrewing?

Him doing this reminds me of how I think about the guy?

But if he looses the next election. Will he be asking us to to help him with a brew day?

Or will he just forget about homebrewing altogether?

Stupid questions I have thought about.

We all have probably heard that the Obama White House brews its own Honey Ale. Upon hearing about this homebrew, I, like many of you, first thought "I want to brew that beer". As far as I can tell there has been no recipe released.

I have created a White House petition for the recipe to be released. Please sign. We only have one month to get the signatures. Spread the word. Let's get this rolling.

They already said they'd release it when they've perfected it. And it will appear on the white house's food blog.

It's gonna be difficult to source that White House honey to reproduce that when they do release the recipe...

I'm sure if you contributed $1200.00 to his campaign, sent him a note telling him about how much you love the idea that he brews beer, how much you would love to brew beer just like him, and how you lay in bed at night fantasizing about brewing beer with him while Michelle makes nutritional snacks - that he would send you a super secret copy of both of his homebrew recipes, a signed picture of him and Joe Biden drinking a couple beers on the White House patio, and all the emails that you can handle asking you to get your friends and family to contribute to his campaign - and best of all - his personal promise to buy you a Bud Light the next time he gets away from the White House of the tour bus and comes to your neck of the woods.

Yeah.....that should do it....

I'm sure as soon as Michelle finds out how many calories are in beer, she'll start shaming everyone who even sniffs a homebrew.
