Brewing beer the presidential way
The White House released recipes for two beers in September — a honey ale and a honey porter. We brewed the ale because it’s been served at state events and because it’s a style more familiar to casual beer drinkers. The brewing process is less glamorous than you might think. It involves a lot of sanitizing and a good deal of time spent watching the pot boil. Many who are interested in home brewing have looked at the White House recipe, but we thought it was time to make it and taste it.
