Earlier today the White House released their response to the petition requesting the recipe for the White House Honey Ale. Well, they delivered! They released their recipes for White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter.
This beer is the first alcohol ever brewed or distilled inside the White House. The brewing process is started in the White House kitchen. Chefs brew the beer with honey collected from the South lawn
and ferment it in the basement. Once bottled, President Obama shares and enjoys this beer on the campaign trail, at special events, and with distinguished guests.
As mentioned before, we will take this recipe and brew our own batch of either White House Honey Ale or White House Honey Porter (eventually both!). Unfortunately, since we don't have access to honey from the South lawn of the White House, it won't be exactly the same, but we'll try. Of course, we have to begin brewing in the first place, so it may be a little ways down the road.
