(CNN) – Move over Anheuser Busch, President Obama is releasing his own beer recipe.
The president himself confirmed the news Wednesday during an online chat on the user-generated website Reddit.
“It will be out soon!” Obama wrote. “I can tell you from first hand experience, it is tasty.”
Public clamor for the recipe began earlier this month, when the president told a voter in Iowa that his campaign bus was stocked his homemade suds. Previously, Obama officials had been tight-lipped on the subject.
But in a petition on the White House website, individuals identifying themselves as “home brewers across America” called on the Obama administration to fork over details of the secret ingredients, which reportedly include honey from the White House gardens. Separately, a Freedom of Information Act request was filed in an attempt to score the details.
White House chefs reportedly brew three varieties: a porter, a honey ale, and a honey blonde.
