Thirsty Thursday - What's Brewing at The White House

Since I will be on the road to DC as you read this and in honor of President's Day earlier this week, I thought you would enjoy this for today's Thirsty Thursday (you don't have to be a fan of our 44th President to appreciate a good home brew!)...

Did you know that Barack Obama is the first US President to brew beer at The White House?

According to the White House, "George Washington brewed beer and distilled whiskey at Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson made wine but there's no evidence that any beer has been brewed in the White House."  Even more unique is that it is made with honey from beehives that are kept on the South Lawn of the White House.
The President served it on the campaign trail and also when he sat down and enjoyed a cold one with Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer.
