Barack Obama Joins the Brewers Community. This time Barack Obama got famous for becoming the first US president who brews his own brand of beer in the White House. Its basic ingredient is honey from the white house beehives, so the beer is called the White House Honey Ale.
The beer is brewed using a home brewing set that Obama purchased with his own money. It was served when Obama had dinner with war hero Sgt. Dakota Meyer after having awarded him with the Medal of Honor.
The presidential drink made its first appearance at the beginning of the year at the Super Bowl party where the guests emptied the whole initial batch of 100 bottles. The only awkward moment was that there was no brewing license.
