President Obama Travels With White House Homebrewed Beer Aboard Ground Force One

It seems the Prez is a fan of homebrew. So much so that he has the White House chefs making the stuff for him using honey from Michelle Obama's kitchen garden. 

The selection has included White House Honey Ale, White House Honey Porter, and White House Honey Blonde Ale. 

Based on the article at Obama Foodorama, he even had his peeps fetch a bottle for a guy that…

High rating from the user community on Beer Advocate...Low rating from "The Bros."Bells Brewery Expedition Stout knocked me on my ass. It was a complete one-two punch I was not prepared for.

#14 Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #41 Catamount Maple Wheat

This was a beer I toyed with the idea of purchasing for a little while. The name alone was enough to whet my appetite and get me excited. But then I hit the Internet to see what it thought, and it told me to stay away. Specifically, Kate over at beer411. But I’m a stubborn jack-ass, so when I saw it for $5, I just HAD to pick it up. And then I put it in the fridge and every week I would…
