From HuffPost, an article about home brewers filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get the White House beer recipes.
Okay, first TIL that there was “White House” beer. Drinking has always been a part of Washington social events, but before President Obama, it was more like a Martini or Wine kinda place. I don’t drink very often any more, but I have an absolute love for good craft or home brews.
Second, that evidently the White House brews good beer. I mean, really, if you had a “beer president”, isn’t it amazing it’s not a Bud Light sponsored kind of thing? ”White House Ale, brought to you by Anheuser-Busch”?
I mean, maybe that’s the way to solve our budget deficits: Official Corporate Sponsorship! I mean, the big corporations already DO own Washington DC, but make it official: “The West Wing, Brought to you by Tampax” or something. The Supreme Court, courtesy of Koch Industries?
This post got a lot more serious than I expected very quickly. But seriously: hook me up with some White House Honey Blonde Ale! Please!
