This whole thing is really cool, and if an AHA rally at the White House were possible, in this or ANY presidential administration, I would hope that we'd be grownup enough to set aside differences and flock to an AHA rally at the White House regardless of our political affiliation. That's a big part of the joy of homebrew: it brings us together under the common banner of our love of homemade beer.

As I wrote on Twitter a few months back when a "homebrew buddy" and I were disagreeing on a political point, "We may not agree about everything, but we can agree that malted barley wants to become beer."

I hear ya.  My best "homebrew buddy" is on the opposite side of the isle as myself.  And we get into from time to time, but beer is always beer.

Kumbaya

Which if everyone can keep a sense of humor and perspective would be an outstanding name for that beer.

If it's a dopplebock it could be called Kumbayator.   ;D

There was a followup article - apparently the Kitchen Brigade is going to keep on brewing!

Oh and there's a certain familiar voice being quoted.

ETA: Reminder about the political stuff. Everyone was well behaved on the first pass, keep it up!

Awesome blog post - way to go Denny!

Hopefully we'll get a Zymurgy article from someone in the White House soon.

I keep waiting for a post from a WH staffer that goes somewhat like this: It's been 4 days so I transferred to secondary...

Pretty cool, knowing some Secret Service guy is slipping into the White House kitchen at night
sniffing at the burbling airlocks! ;D

Awesome... Denny and the President sharing space in an article. I assume the White House chefs use a blue cooler.
