The White House Releases Honey Ale Recipe


Not too long ago, U.S. President Barack Obama made a casual reference to a man in Iowa that his bus was stocked full of beer brewed at the White House. Almost immediately, people wanted to know about this beer and now, the White House have released the recipe.

It’s taken a bit of action on the public’s behalf to get here though. It all started when a Reddit user submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for the recipes, which evolved into a petition to reveal the secrets. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney promised that should the petition reach 25,000 signatures, they would release the recipe.

In a blog post titled “Ale to the Chief on the White House website on Saturday, they delivered on their promise. The full recipe for the White House Honey Ale was posted, along with images and a printable PDF to make it easier for people.
