President Obama Says White House Beer Recipe Will Be "Out Soon"

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 8:30 AM


Last week we urged you to sign the petition on the White House website to release the recipe for White House Honey Ale, brewed on the premises with honey from the beehive near Michelle Obama's kitchen garden. That same week, a diligent home brewer on Reddit filed a Freedom of Information Act Request for the recipe.

Now, in an unexpected turn of events, the President of the United States himself has taken to Reddit, saying, "It will be out soon! I can tell from first hand experience, it is tasty."

Well played, President Obama. Note to all San Francisco brewers: Please, someone, make this recipe when it's released, because with all the buzz we really want to try it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
