The President was in a chat on Reddit today and somebody asked him about the recipe.  He replied saying it would be released "soon" whatever that means.

I could care less.  Do we even know if this beer/recipe is any good?  I would rather try to recreate a tried and true recipe from Jamil, Gordon, Denny, or a gold medal winner from NHC before brewing this beer. 

I will avoid all of the political stuff that could potentially spin off from this.  I HATE politics.

I'm glad you could care less, I'm interested too. ::)

I'm not saying I'm going to brew it, and in fact I probably won't, but I think it's cool that someone is brewing in the White House again.  Maybe it isn't good, maybe it is - so what?  That the President of hte United States is brewing (or having a chef brew) is great for our hobby, and releasing the recipe just adds to it.  In my opinion, the more press his brewing gets, the better it is for homebrewers everywhere.

Those are all very good and valid points Tom.  I like the fact that someone is brewing in the White House and all the press that homebrewing and craft beer is receiving while Obama is in the White House. All of which helps validates and helps our hobby grow.  But, people seem to be more interested in obtaining the recipe than the fact that this is helping the hobby grow.  That is the part that irks me.

I just want to get the recipe so I can tear it apart and berate it the way I do all recipes. Honey in beer is soooo for beginners, anyway.

Now that BW3 commercial, I am not sure if that is good publicity for our hobby or not.... :P

interesting insight you have there.  is that your own hypothesis, or do you have factual data to back up your assertation?

Just my own hypothesis from reading various posts on the interweb and talking to people.  Just my opinion.  I may be completely wrong.  It has been known to happen from time to time ;D

Though Washington and Jefferson are knnow to have made beer, they never lived in the White House - wasn't built/finished. IIRC Madison was the first to live there.

I would have been more interested in seeing a public petition to have the President help legalize brewing in states such as Alabama and Mississippi than the actual recipe.  I understand the federal government likely does not have jurisdiction to do that and that he is too busy trying to get re-elected.  Hopefully, making the public aware, especially the elected officials in those states who are still misinformed about what homebrewing actually is can lead to some change.  Hopefully.....

Jefferson did live there. It was built/finished before John Adams left office. Washington was only president not to have lived there at all.

The Feds already did their job by making it legal for the states to allow it.  Whether homebrewing is allowed in your state is considered a "states" issue and the Federal government does not have any jurisdiction on it.  That's my understanding at least.

Alabama will get there one of these days.

I don't really know that I care if the recipe is released or not.  If you do, good luck in your quest.
