White House releases much-anticipated beer recipe
(CNN) – After some pressure from the online home brewing community that included a petition on the White House website and a Freedom of Information Act request, the Obama administration gave in Saturday and released its homemade beer recipe.
In a post on the White House Blog, head chef Sam Kass posted the recipes for two beers brewed on the grounds of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House Honey Ale and Honey Porter. Both beers are made using honey harvested from the White House bee hive.
Read the full story on CNN's Political Ticker.
Come on CNN,
This is the third related article you have written on this topic.
This is not news.
Obama has already released his recipe for destroying the American economy.
ARE YOU KIDDING ?
HE HAS SINGLE HANDEDLY RUINED THIS COUNTRY
GO SEE MOVIE 2016 AND THEN SAY THAT IGNORANT COMMENT
OBAMA CAN NOW ADD ALCOHOLICS TO HIS CONSTITUENCY OF OCCUPIERS, COMMIES, GAYS, FREE LOADERS, AND ILLEGALS.
how sad that we actually are spending $ in the White House to do this and than release multiple press releases on it. Any one else getting tired of Mr Obama some how thinking that he can "relate" to the American Public thru Beer?
Beer has a long history in the USA. Try banning beer and see what happens...
Would you please stop talking about the economy!!!!! This in no way helps Obama get relected, so please change the subject or we will not have this great man in the White House in 2012.
Like the Mayans said "Obama 2012"
PLEASE, HUMOR ME, GIVE ME YOUR TOP 5 REASONS WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU, ME AND THIS COUNTRY THAT MAKES HIM A "GREAT MAN"...
PLEASE, HUMOR ME, TELL ME YOUR TOP FIVE REASONS WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU, ME AND THIS COUNTRY THAT MAKES HIM A "GREAT MAN"...AND THE BEER RECIPE CAN'T BE ONE OF THE FIVE
Ruining the economy was a Bush era recipe. It was called "Tank the stock market and make everyone's IRA worthless".
Anyone looking at their monthly investments statement from 4 years ago knows they are better off today.
Yes, avert a depression, then, get no credit for it. Romney/Ryan hasn't released their recipies. They are known to be toxic.
Romney does not drink beer, or sell drugs from a hot dog cart in Hawaii.
Just like Harry Reid is a pimp, and keeps his money offshore to avoid taxes.
HOLY COW!!...Paul Ryan drove around in the biggest wiener-dog in the country. Beep -beep. It's where he dreamed up his 'Roadmap For America' plan. He got his inspiration from all the times he pulled over to take a whiz.
My Baloney has a first name,.......ALL TOGETHER NOW....!!
Cynthia L. So someone who does an honest days work is not good enough for you, should he have smoked and sold drugs, or maybe apply to college as a foreign exchange student,
Jay is right - Romney wouldn't be caught anywhere a hot dog cart. However, I hear Ryan kept the keys to the Weinermobile.
Lizzie & Jay I think yu should take your research to Fact Check .org and look up Viral Spiral don't get pun by internet rumors. You seem to be a sucker for every lie posted.
YEAH ... LIKIE A TWO BIT COMMUNITY ORGANIZER ... WHO VOTED 'PRESENT' 127 TIMES ... SPENT TWENTY YEARS IN AN ANTI-AMERICAN, RACIST CHURCH ... NEVER WORKED AT A REAL JOB HIS ENTIRE LIFE ... BETRAYED HIS OATH TO DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION ... SQUANDERED 5 TRILLION OF OUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS ... AND SUSTAINED OVER 8% UNEMPLOYMENT FOR OVER 40 WEEKS ... IS YOU CHOICE ???
man are you a BROKEN RECORD!!!!! howard, when obama wins again will you go stand in traffic?
The last I checked teaching Constitutional Law is a "real job profession", being a lawyer is a real job profession,...and yes working in those fields means one files tax returns. Working for a non-profit organization is a real job profession...as is being an author. If you don't believe me, ask Stephen King if he pays income tax.
Why don't you go to Romneys website to read his ideas and vision, or is that to much of a inconvenience for you, guess its easier just to have MEDIA MATTERS tell you what to say and think, you save a lot of braincells by not using them.
Is that where you found out that YOU have brain cells?? Just wonderin'.....
THANKS TO OBAMA'S POOR LEADERSHIP ... MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND EVERYONE I KNOW ... HAS TO DRAMATICALLY CUT BACK ON ALL OUR PURCHASES. IN ADDITION TO OUR HOME VALUE DROPPING BY 35% ... WE HAVE TO DRIVE LESS, AND DOWN GRADE THE FOOD WE EAT. OBAMA IS TURNING AMERICA INTO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY.
Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country
You should like a typical whiny republican, boo hoo hoo, I have to eat chicken instead of steak! I can't drive the Mustang I gotta drive the Citation! I can't buy Aeropostale, I gotta buy walmart!
Gee..Howard.... My home value had already deteriorated before the end of 2008, as had my saving portfolio, and gasoline in June 2008 was at an alltime national average high of $4.11 per gallon. Do you suffer from permnent amnesia? President Obama was not President in 2008.
Oh Howard on a high note...my grandchildren now either have a job, and in most cases now have a better job than the ones they lost in 2008.
As if I care about the White House beer recipe. There is alot more important things happening in America to be bothered about Obama's beer. Maybe if he showed the same interest in his role as president as he does for the beer recipe, our country and people would not be suffering through his failed policies.
THIS PREZ IS CLUELESS
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NON DRINKING NON DRUGGIE PRESIDENT TO COME ALONG
Government employees are brewing beer in a gov. building?
Not the first time, one of the founding fathers used to distill whiskey in the White House basement. Lighten up prude.
George Washington, in his day, own the nation's largest distillery?
Is this the example that our great leader gives to the rest of the nation? We leaders like these, our country is doomed!
You sound like a muslim
President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.
Still on top of things!!!. And Bush's daughters were already grown.
What about releasing Obama's budget? What about unemployment plan? What about debt reduction plan? What about deficit reduction? The Whitehouse is going low standard...low standard...low standard...
Beer? What about RECIPE ON HOW TO SOLVE our countries unemployment? BEER recipe won't bring FOOD TO MY TABLE. LOWER MY GROCERIES nor INCREASE MY PAY CHECK so I can at least afford to give a good life to my family. ENOUGH OBAMA.. ENOUGH CNN FOR THIS NONSENSE.. A LOT of America including kids are hungry and there you are giving news about Obama wasting my tax dollars money brewing beers??? WHERE IS YOUR HEART MR. OBAMA? MIDDLE CLASS ARE HURTING you know.. Families don't need beer recipe, WE WANT UNEMPLOYMENT FIX RECIPE.
Bush 13.5% unemployment
Obama 8.2% unemployement
Your not to good at facts or math.
Lizzie: YOU'RE not TOO good at English.
Lizzie Oh but he is good at the real truth math. That you can't deal with real world facts is the problem.
Barley, hops and $5trillion in debt.
15 trillion in debt, Bush alone racked up 7.5 trillion, Obama to date has increased by 1.5 trillion.
At least be correct in your facts and quit getting your talking points from Fox News
And the largest percentage of that $1.5 is the interest on the George W. Bush debt.
Typical, he likes is Schlitz Malt Liquor quarts and I bet it is tax free.
All built and brewed on our dime.
If Obama would spend as much time in the White House as he does with his lip hanging on the rim of a beer glass, or the amount of time he spends golfing, our country may have been able to get something done. But as our country sit here falling apart, Obama is out playing rock star.
The state media can't talk about anything positive in Obama's record as president so has to dwell on beer making and other such nonsense
Four years after the crash of 2008 which decimated seniors' IRA saving,..... we can again look at our monthly securities statements without weeping. Are we better off today? You Betcha we are!!
What about releasing the documents he's hiding?
Romney's tax returns?
Yeah, why is he hiding those tax returns? Romney, you got some 'splainin' to do to Marisombra...
Is this Obama top priority? Is he working on some high grade marijuana? Obama how about you meet with your jobs czar for once. Oh wait he does not care about jobs or us
Beer employs hundreds of thousands of workers in the USA, perhaps you should salute them
Not only that Anheuser-Busch owns more than just breweries. They own bottle manufacturing companies, distributorships, recyling plants, packaging companies, agricultural companies, advertising companies....and the list goes on of all the related jobs they produce.
Sorry about the missing "c" in recycling.
Mr.President, you did not brew that, YOUR WH Chefs did.
So you accept Obama's comment was right in the first place?
Exactly what the President said and why he had the White House chef post the recipe...Did you have a point or were you just making a knee "JERK" statement.
I now see Mr President where your priorities lie. A photo op with you drinking a White House new beer recipe is obviously more important than 23 million unemployedd folks. Thnaks for all your work on creating jobs and the economy.
MOOCHELLE PROBABLY FOUND OBAMMY GETTING DRUNK WITH TWO FEMALES
WHAT A ROTTEN EXAMPLE OF A PRESIDENT, MORE IMPORTANT TO DRINK VS HELPING NEW ORLEANS
GLAD THE NEXT PRES DOES NOT DRINK
And this boys and girls, is why you shouldn't post when drunk.
this black idiot is a disgrace to our country
your a racist turd . cute artical lighten up you repo idiot. Your sick all right
THE REPUBLITARD BUTTHURT IS STRONG IN THIS THREAD. A THREAD ABOUT BEER. SOUND LIKE YOU ALL HAD A BIT TOO MUCH TO DRINK ALREADY.
You're right of course, when he needs the regular folks vote he drinks beer, at the $35000 fundraisers Champaign and caviar,
Sounds good to me!
After Obama retires in 2016,
he could become a master brewer with his own label, in conjunction with a major label.
Bets are...his honey beer will be a best seller. He could sell it with his picture on the label...and like Paul Newman...a portion goes to charity.
Will the WH Chefs get credit for brewing the beer, or will Pres.Obama say, I brewed it.
he's a great dad, has a great beer recipe, plays a lot of golf......typical cnn and mainstream media nonsense about a president who is so inept and whose record is so pathetic that there is nothing else to write about.......distract distract distract.......
And killed Osama Bin Laden
all these good christian tea tottlers and jack mormons. What a bunch of phoneys you are. Such high morals. get a life.Forward 2012
Is this really the image of a president we want to see. A middle aged man drinking it up at a bar with two young women.
Obama's wife can trust him, on the other hand Romney's wife keeps him on a leash.
Is that why she keeps taps on him and wants to know if a female comes to close to him or the other way around, is that why she shows up unannounced at meetings.
who is this girl who's shoulder he's touching..seems a little Clintonish to me.
when ever the president wants to connect with the average joe, they have him do something with beer..that's what the poor people drink right?
Obama, you didn't brew it
you didn't brew it Obama
WHAT A JOKE MR PRESIDENT...Less Golf and Beer and SOCIALIZING and MORE Leadership for this Country!!!
