My understanding is that Obama is not making the beer himself, but his staff are doing so. His only involvement is that hes the boss, but hes really no more a brewer than he is a gourmet chef, landscape gardener or anything else that White House employees are expected to do.

Its great that the White House is producing brew, but the media is grossly misrepresenting the facts by saying that the President is a brewer.

New news to me :lol: but I still find it cool that he prefers his "own" to commercial stuff

...and your source for that assertion? I have searched and cannot find a quote anywhere that states this....

Read the old articles. Obama is not personally homebrewing. his kitchen staff are the ones getting their hands dirty. By all meams obama is behind it, and they even use honey from the whitehouse hives. but ask him what terms like mash or sparge mean, and you wont get a response.

OK, got it. The kitchen staff are brewing at the request of the Prez. He paid for the equipment and the recipes are his idea.

Like Tony Abbott, let us not allow the facts to get in the way of a good story...

Exactly! This is yet another illusion he likes to create in order to show himself as a "man of the people". 50% of US brewers are now won over. Next minority interest group charmathon to follow. He's already won the gay vote, the coloured vote, the baseball fan vote and the stoner vote.

So realistically, he is paying someone a wage to make him personalised beer. I wonder why they are in debt.

Oh God. It's comments like this that throw anything you read on this forum anymore into a dubious light. I'll ask (someone has to) ... Ahem ... have you asked him what those words mean?

They say Clinton was a letch, but at least he never fisted his wife in public.





And of course, Teddy Roosevelt was the last in the line of throat stomping US presidents.
TR would have rolled up his sleeves got busy with the mash paddle I'll bet.
Distillers mash, mind you.

have you actually searched for the facts of this media misrepresentation, or are you blindly accepting what the media circus tell you, and deferring instead to childish insults of other members, because your dream of a Presidential brewer has been shattered by the facts? There's a whole wiki articles dedicated to the White House Honey Ale. It's abundantly clear from two minutes of internet searching that Obama isnt brewing his own beer. If he was, you can be damned sure there would have been a photo-shoot for the occasion.

And thanks to the mods for cleaning up pbrosnan's post.
