Give Me BEER!

Do we need a little diversion from the everyday nonsense that we are pummelled with day by day?
Should we take some time out to savor the better things in life and "summit" with our neighbors of all political stripes?
I say, for the good of the nation, the time has come to lay down the gauntlet...bury the axe...and get good and stewed on some Obama Ale! 

There's been a lot of buzz online recently about the recipe for the White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter, including a popular petition on We the People, the White House's online petition platform.
With public excitement about White House beer fermenting such a buzz, we decided we better hop right to it.
Here is the official White House VIDEO touting this ALL AMERICAN PRESIDENT following an ALL AMERICAN tradition...sic...
Maybe I will have some of what HE is smoking as well...
Something gives HIM a very eclectic view of himself and America. I need a boost!

It's been barely a hot second since the White House released the recipes for its home-brewed Honey Ale and Honey Porter, but there's already a home-brew kit for the beers on the market.

Internet home brew supply shop Northern Brewer has launched two kits that include all the necessary ingredients for each White House beer. MSN's Bites on Today blog spoke with a member of Northern Brewer's marketing team, Chip Walton, who said requests for beer kits came rolling in as soon as the recipes were released:
“Politics aside, I think people are interested in brewing the same beer the president is drinking at home and offering as gifts on his travels.”
Included in the kits are fermentable malt extracts, specialty grains to steep in the brew for extra flavor, a pound of honey, two or three varieties of hop pellets, yeast and priming sugar. They also come with detailed instructions that take consumers through the entire six-week process.
