The Obamas’ Super Bowl party had a guest more exciting to this Lagerhead than Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. This Sunday the president and first lady previewed their inaugural batch of home-brewed beer.
White House Honey Ale was brewed on site with ingredients from the White House grounds. According to Eddie Gehman Kohan’s food-focused White House blog Obama Foodorama, the presidential home-brewed ale is made with honey from the bee hive in Mrs. Obama’s South Lawn kitchen garden. From Gehman Kohan’s post last night:
Brewed with one pound of honey from this year’s 160-pound harvest from the White House Bee Hive, the Ale was made by an unnamed White House chef who is a home-brewing enthusiast. The President, First Lady, and their guests sampled the special suds for the first time this evening. The label on the bottle reads “Brewed With White House Honey.”
The White House also had beer from Hinterland, a craft brewery inGreen Bay, Wis., and Yuengling from Pottsville, Pa., for the event. For a picture of the home-brewed White House beer label and more details about the Presidential Super Bowl party’s guests and menu, go here.
