Washington was dead before the White House was built, so he didn't brew any beer at the White House.

I did catch the tail end of the segment though. Did they discuss the brew process at all? The President endorsing Homebrew prior to the Super Bowl is pretty cool exposure for the hobby..... Well maybe. Fox will probably find a way to say he screwed it up lol.

With honey from the White House bee hives...


IMO, only good things can come from the White House having a Head Brewer. :)

Good correction. I didn't mean to call you out, but I'm a history geek and couldnt let it go. Sorry. They replicate some of the beers of the time of the Founding in a pub in historic Philadelphia. Pretty cool.

right! it was cool. I was telling my wife, how cool would it be to work in the white house and decide you want to make your beer there. I'd have to step it up and increase the batch size for sure!

Sounds like Yard's Ales of the Revolution at The City Tavern. Cool stuff.

Here is a press release from while back. Video shows the head chef at the White House and he gives an ok overview of the process. It looks like the fermenting beer is stored in a basement pantry. I'm guessing they brought them out for the interview.

Fun fact - Obama payed for the initial kit out of pocket.

I think it was part of the Budweiser commercial.
