Posted on 08/15/2012 12:28:57 AM PDT by Jess Kitting
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has become one of the first modern day U.S. presidents known for enjoying a cold beer that is brewed and tapped right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Obama aides on Tuesday confirmed the small brewery during a three-day re-election campaign tour across Iowa. An official admitted the Obamas have their own alcoholic beverage made and kept in stock at the White House.
Revelations about the White House beer came to light after the president gave a bottle of it to a patron at a coffee shop he was visiting in Iowa. The gift prompted the press corps traveling with Obama to ask for more details and White House spokesman Jay Carney was peppered with questions about the first family's beverage of choice.

I wonder if the Obama's have FDA approval and a license to distribute bootlegged alcoholic beverages. How many Americans are they putting out of work?
Now we know what Obama is doing when he’s not playing golf.
meanwhile Gabby Douglas gets scolded my My Belle on Leno for eating an Egg McMuffin
Any sign of an economic plan or coherent foreign policy in the midst of all the homebrew, golf equipment, travel brochures, and rolling papers?
Is the taxpayer paying for him to have a private micro-brewery when there are endless alternatives? Arrogant, extravagant, SOB.
He lives, thinks and acts like a 90s rapper.
He’s just emulating the Kennedys.......
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
As in maybe there’s some other “home grown” recipes they’re hiding?
UV GrowBulbs in the basement? (Maybe some of Carl Spackler’s special hybrids?)
By the way, Mr. Obama, you didn't make that!
From an ancient blog post:
“Like many of the hip-hop celebrities, money, and/or position, only makes them glow in the dark and highlights their lack of self-control. Their excesses are on a worldwide stage for everyone to see...and hear. Instead of acting with some kind of dignity, they have just moved their ill manners and thuggery into better digs. They remain who they are, trouble walking...with a bit more money and a lot of notoriety.”
“And thus you come to us, a street thug, disguised as a statesman, a messiah, a president, when in reality, you are a stupid, corrupt Chicago politician who could not hide his eagerness to defile the Whitehouse for even a day.”
Maybe we should start a list.
1. Manufacturing alcoholic beverages for distribution without a license.
2. Employing others to make said beverages. Are the Obamas paying taxes, Social Security, insurance, etc. to employ such people?
3. Providing alcoholic beverages to minors, if they are letting their kids sip the moonshine.
4. Transporting alcoholic beverages across state lines for distribution without a license.
5. Using taxpayer money for private, and perhaps commercial, gain.
6. Various FDA regulations.
7. Various EPA regulations.
And the list goes on. Please feel free to add your own.
Michelle’s “garden” out back.
The real issue is how much beer are they drinking. Are they drunk every night?
Don't get me wrong. I hate that bastard.
Probably for brown-nosing the Secret Service since they’ll practically have to live with them for the rest of their lives.
This exemplifies the pathetic state of the US news media.
8. Presidenting while black?
“By the way, Mr. Obama, you didn’t make that! “
Chances are some $100k plus “aid” on OUR payroll is the brewer.
Obama is too stupid and lazy to do it himself!
Moochelle DEMANDS things......guess she loves her beer!!
This homebrewing at the White hut is old news. Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dakota Meyer was served some the the homebrewd Honey Ale last Sept. Small batches have been served previously, at Super Bowl and St. Patrick’s Day parties.
Obama to Whitehouse visitors, “And over in this next room is where be make our methamphedamines, we call it our ‘Happy Room”.......
And now you see the “People’s choice”.
Sorry for the mistakes in my previous post, my fingers aren’t working yet this morning......
Too bad the "press" isn't curious about O's school records.
Right on. The White Hut doesn't have "Home Beer". Home beer is beer made by the homeowner.
Obama declared "let there be beer", and the taxpayer paid servants prepared beer. That's as commercial as Budweiser, though probably not as good.
Cards on the table; this IS a Change.
Culture of Choom Choom
Geez, they make it seem like the Obama’s have a micro brewery in the basement.
Probably a few 5 gallon carboys going at a time and Obama has NOTHING to do with any of it.
I used to have 20 gallons going a week. Most time consuming thing is the waiting. A large majority of the time is spent with the fermenting beer in a dark closet.
Do they grow weed in their garden too?! Isn’t beer fattening? What hypocrits.
Actually its not at all illegal. this may actually be the first interesting thing he has done in office. LOTS of fellow Freepers are home brewers as well :) there is even a thread/ping list.
