A behind-the-scenes look at homebrewing in the White House. This story popped up August 21 on The Atlantic Wire: Beer Geeks Determined to Unlock Obama’s Home-Brew Recipe. At that point it didn’t seem like the petition to release the recipes under the Freedom of Information Act was going to get it done, but the White House has released the official home brew recipes for its Honey
Brown Ale and Honey Porter (both made with honey from beehives on the South Lawn).
White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass and White House Sous Chef Tafari Campbell explain a bit of history and more on brewing in the White House.
Happy brewing, and enjoy the weekend!

Both recipes now available as kits from Northern Brewer Homebrew Supply. Thanks to Eric for the tip!
