You know craft beer has fully hit the mainstream when the Leader of the Free World has two beers brewing at the White House.
Last week, the White House released the recipes for a Honey Ale and a Honey Porter, both brewed with honey from the White House. Supposedly it is “the first beer brewed on White House grounds.”
Inspired by home brewers from across the country, last year President Obama bought a home brewing kit for the kitchen. After the few first drafts we landed on some great recipes that came from a local brew shop. We received some tips from a couple of home brewers who work in the White House who helped us amend it and make it our own. To be honest, we were surprised that the beer turned out so well since none of us had brewed beer before.
Here’s a video about the beers from the White House:
I’m sure Obama was probably looking for a pint or two of these after his DNC speech, I know I would be.
