In February 1979 President Jimmy Carter signed a law repealing federal prohibitions on homebrewing. Two decades later, homebrewing has come to the White House itself!
The beginning of the month, the Obama Foodorama blog reported that the Obamas had served their guests at the White House Superbowl party a honey ale brewed on premises using honey from the White House beehive. However, contrary to reports that followed on other sites, it was not President Obama himself who brewed the beer, but the White House kitchen staff. However, it is the first time that there is any record of beer -or any alcoholic beverage- being brewed in America’s Executive Mansion.Share on Facebook
