I've been thinking about this for a while since the most recent spate of White House Beer threads popped up again, and I just don't have any interest in their recipe.

There are hundreds of great recipes out there. Many times more than I could ever brew in my lifetime. What makes the White House recipe better than any one of those?

I think the bigger question is: Is the president breaking any laws when he hands out beer to people on his re-election trips? Each state has varying homebrew laws. Does he inform himself of each state's laws beforehand?

"Siri, tell me the homebrew laws of Missouri!"

It's not about whether we have interest in the recipe - it's about providing some legitimacy for a historic part of the heritage of the US. We're a country that has had brewers for longer than we've been a country. The more press craft and home brew gets the better for our hobby. This is certainly likely to get some attention if the signature threshold is met.

Default OFFICIAL White House Presidential Beer Recipe

There is a petition up on the official whitehouse.gov website asking for the release of the "secret" recipe for the White House beer. For those that do not know beer has been brewed at the White House for a while supposedly using local ingredients such as honey from the garden.

To sign the petition go here:

Obama brews beer....?
Seriously....?

Next thing yo'll be telling me is that he drinks it on the bus...you know..."Tax Payer One".

Thanks for bringing this epic post to my attention.
This changes everything I ever thought I knew about brewing.

Damn....Obama brews....what a country!

What if the recipe turns out to be mediocre at best? I'm sure it's nothing too far from what recipes we already have access to...

Compared to some of the other petitions on the site this one should be a soft ball! Good or bad it doesn't really matter. The point is that it is a beer brewed IN THE WHITE HOUSE by (or with) a standing PRESIDENT. I signed the petition...any positive PR for homebrewing is a great thing!
