White House Brew Recipe
« on: August 21, 2012, 04:23:20 PM »
A number of people have petitioned the White House to release their recipe for Obama's Honey Ale.  Politics aside, if that's something up your alley the link is below:

Get the word out. I think it's less about the recipe as it is an opportunity to show that we brewers have a strong voice.

I'm not sure if I can sign. I'm not a citizen, but I created an account. Let's see how far I get until I see a note that only citizens can sign.

“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drank, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.

Seems like the right thing to do. Brew the president's beer! Will have to come up w a cool name. El Presidente is already taken.

AJ says: 5.2 works great for brewers that don't check pH and doesn't work at all for those that do check.

If they don't release the recipe, it will probably be because they dry-hop with uppers, downers and Prozac.

Plan B - Use the Freedom of Information Act

I'm all for finding out the recipe, and hopefully it will be released (I can't imagine why it wouldn't be). However, is this really what FOIA was intended for? If the kit/ingredients were purchased with his personal money, it's probably not FOIA'able.
