White House Honey Ale – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

White House Honey Ale is the first beer known to have been brewed in the White House.[1] The process began in January 2011[2] at the request of President Barack Obama who purchased the homebrewing kit using his personal funds.[3] It includes a pound of honeycollected from beehives on the South Lawn.[4] The chefs at the White House are said to use “traditional methods” to brew the beer, before it is bottled and labelled with a customized logo. The logo features a line drawing of the White House on a maroon background encircled in yellow.[5]
