The POTUSā official residence unveiled recipes for its āHoney Aleā and āHoney Porterā in a blog post partly entitledĀ āAle to the Chief.ā
āWith public excitement about White House beer fermenting such a buzz, we decided we better hop right to it,ā writes Sam Kass, White House assistant chef and senior policy advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives.
Online demand for the recipes stemmed from a popular petition onĀ We the People, an official government website for submitting petitions to the president. Created on Aug. 18,Ā āRelease the recipe for the Honey Ale home brewed at the White HouseāĀ garnered more than 12,000 signatures.
The Honey Brown Ale is the first alcohol brewed or distilled on White House grounds, Kass writes. Previously, Thomas Jefferson made wine, and George Washington brewed beer and distilled whiskey at his Mount Vernon home in Virginia.
Inspired by home brewers from across the United States, Obama bought a home-brewing kit for the kitchen, Kass continues. After some experimentation, staff created the Honey Brown Ale, followed by the Honey Porter. They debuted a Honey Blonde this past summer. All are brewed with honey tapped from theĀ first-ever bee hive on the South Lawn of the White House.
