Obama uses White House brew as campaign tool

15th August, 2012 by Phoebe Brookes

President Obama has revealed that the White House has installed a microbrewery that produces both light and a dark ales.

Making an appearance at a coffee shop in Knoxville, the US President gave a bottle of his home brew to the shop owner as a gift, which he brought with him on his Iowa campaign tour.

The beer, named White House Honey Ale, has honey added to it from First Lady Michelle Obama’s own beehive in the White House gardens.

Jay Carney, spokesman to the White House said, “There is a home brew, if you will, at the White House. I think I’ve only tried the light, and it’s quite refreshing.”

This isn’t the first time the President has shown his enjoyment of a beer. To settle a bet made before the UK versus US World Cup game in 2010, UK Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama exchanged beers.

Obama gave Cameron a Chicago beer called Goose Island 312 and the Prime Minister returned the gesture, giving him a bottle of Hobgoblin, brewed in his Oxfordshire constituency’s Wychwood Brewery.
