I can't tell if these posts are serious.

Obama is the president of the United States, and arguably the most influential leader on earth. I hope no one here thinks he is homebrewing himself. He can do that when he's done presidenting.

Yes, yes, and yes. Nail on the head.

More Beer says they package their lme in foil bags. Looks like the bags in the video are clear.

William's Brewing sells in clear pouches. They also have their logo on their buckets. The video has buckets with a B on them.

Those B buckets come from brewersbestkits.com. So I went there and used their retailer locator. The retailer that came up by the zip code of the White House, 20500, is

MY LOCAL HOMEBREW SHOP
6201 Leesburg Pike #3
Falls Church, VA. 22044 US
Telephone: (703) 241-3874

Then again, they aren't the only retailer to sell Brewer's Best gear.

LD Carlson sells a lot of their products in clear bags. Given their product is everywhere, there's a good chance it's theirs.

Wait. Do they sell lme?

There's at least one LHBS here in Utah that sells LME in clear plastic bags. I'm sure they buy it by the barrel and fill bags from that.

I have a morebeer LME bag here. Found it at a freight salvage dealer's storefront, they had a whole bunch of 'em. I figured 11 pounds of light LME for $7 was a good deal. One of these days i need to make a bunch of canned wort from it for starters.

I wouldn't characterize their bag as foil - more metalized plastic.

You'll notice she'll only go from one flower to another of the same species. Even another species of the same color will not be visited by that bee on that trip. I don't know why they do this, but that's how you can get 100% Pure Clover honey, because these little dynamos do that for us.
I'll be starting bee keeping next spring. I have a local bee keeper to help me out. I've been using his honey all year in making a honey cream ale. And man do my fellow drinkers love it. The alcohol is usually around a 7.5 to 8%.
3 weeks ago i got 30 pounds of uncapped honey. I have two carboys going now using uncapped honey. It has a strong flavor to it. I got the uncapped honey for a dollar a pound because its moisture is too high for him to sell it. I'll be putting it on tap this Saturday!

With all the cherry trees/blossoms in the Washington DC area, especially around the white house. I wonder if that has any influence on the flavor of the honey they're harvesting?

Now that would make it unique! Those cherry blossom trees were gifts from the emperor of Japan a long time ago. I think.

I agree with the spirit behind this idea. I'm guessing that the White House kitchen may have already expanded past the amount of equipment shown in the video -- they must be used to anticipating all kinds of sudden unexpected demands, and don't want to be caught short if the President decides to invite 100 veterans over for beer next weekend and wants to offer the house bottle, for example. They may well be churning out a lot more than 5 gallons a month as we speak.

I think it would be great if future presidents also had their own style -- over the years, I think it would be a great way to track changing tastes and preferences, and I hope they keep the tradition growing.

I seem to remember that Reagan was a big booster of California wines and helped a bit in making them more respected internationally by serving them a lot when he was President. Maybe Obama could do just a little of that for US beer as well.
