President and First Lady are brewing in the white house
« on: July 16, 2012, 11:59:36 AM »
I just ran into this article:

Maybe we ought to invite them to become AHA members?

Maybe they need to know about mead with the whitehouse stash of honey.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

I'm pretty sure they're not the ones brewing.  Here's a more accurate version...

Not necessarily.  The White House Executive Chef is more of a permanent position.  For example, the current chef, Cristeta Comerford, was hired by Bush, Jr. 

edit: apologies for the buzzkill.   ;) ;D

Sorry, but I think it is kinda cool that our hobby is going on in our (collectively) White House.  Politics aside.

I also apologize if this isn't beery enough for or if I put this in the wrong area on our Forum.

Politics aside, any positive exposure for the obsession, especially on such a big level is great IMHO

I think it's extremely cool to see brewing going on in the White House!  Especially since they're getting into the homebrew spirit by using their own ingredients.

Now I would be impressed if they were homebrewing spirits in the White House.

Hey, it was good enough for George Washington...

I don't think I can bring myself to call a lot of the commercial stuff 'beer.' For example, this gem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0AOylmOE2I
