Promise kept: White House releases beer recipe; Jobs recipe pending

Bowing to popular demand, the most transparent administration ever has followed through on its promise to release the formerly secret recipe for White House Honey Brown Ale, the first beer known to be brewed on White House grounds and the perfect companion to your next beer summit.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had promised the recipe last month in response to an online petition, which garnered just over 12,000 signatures. (Hmm, we seem to remember the goal being 25,000 signatures. Mainstream media, can we get a fact check?)

It looks like the people are thirsty for more. You know what would go great with that beer?

Yet? It so happens there was an #ObamaBeerNames hashtag game, and yes, it was a lot of fun. It went a little something like this:

    Trying to buy votes with beer? A new low.

    • wilson1

      It’s the Chicago Democratic way, haven’t they been buying votes with alcohol since Al Capone?

  • TugboatPhil

    Will you release the Fast & Furious documents that are hiding who authorized Brian Terry’s murder?

  • Rick Stones

    Great start! Can we assume #FastandFurious docs are next?

    • Burt Zerker

      He’s probably using the Fast & Furious Documents as beer coasters

  • Tom Hurley

    so, i take it they’re out of kool-aid…

    Get the ingredients for the White House beer recipes as kits to brew them yourself at home-

    But, he’s so cool. (sarc)

    HONEY BROWN ALE? when I first read the headline I thought it would be a honey based beer. Is it a coincidence that it’s alcohol made from honey not the vine. as any alcohol made of the vine is forbidden by the Koran.

    • Shawn Gillogly

      Erm, grape beer is really disgusting. So no, I really can’t blame them for this. Most things, yes. Not this.

    • Jay Stevens

      Vine or grain. Technically, vodka should be OK – except that it is still alcohol.

    another picture where his eyes look mean and evil. he really is creepy

    #ObamaBeerNames Barry Beer

  • Shawn Gillogly

    Look, Jimmy Carter made home brewing legal–the one thing I’m grateful to him for. And I can’t condemn this Pres. for sharing a decent looking beer recipe. Anything else, sure. But beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy. 😉

  • Damon Henrichs

    A blog I wrote about “Beer Politics”. For your consideration.

  • Chip

    Now we’ll see how many libs get sick of “Obama Brew” since they don’t seem to mind all that Kool-Aid.


    The left is evil.

  • BeeKaaay

    Obama’s jobs recipe is easy.

    First raise a lot of money for Obama’s campaign.
    Second, get a job with the government.

    • Live Free

      Let’s put some “hard” numbers up to support that view:


      FACTS: 1/3 OF Bum-Boys “bundlers” got “key posts”

      “The report says that 184 out of 556, or about one third of 2008 Obama campaign “bundlers” —donors who agree to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for a campaign – “or their spouses joined the administration in some role. But the percentages are much higher for the big-dollar bundlers. Nearly 80 percent of those who collected more than $500,000 for Obama took ‘key administration posts,’ as defined by the White House.”


      FACTS: 44% of Bum-Boys (or is it the other way around? He doesn’t always get it right!) got AMBASSADORSHIPS!

      “Despite promises to change how Washington works, Obama has actually perfected the game of giving political allies and donors key ambassadorships in countries like England, France, Japan . Spain, Finland, and Australia. And in the eyes of foreign service association, he’s become the worst abuser, putting political allies in 44 percent of the top 185 ambassadorial positions. By comparison, 30 percent of George W. Bush’s ambassadors were political appointees and 28 percent of Bill Clinton’s political allies and donors.”

    White House Honey Brown Ale?

    Racist AND sexist!!

  • radjahshelduck

    I don’t really give a Schlitz.

  • lana ward

    His eyes are so spooky and evil, i think he is reptilian (look it up) so is his wife

  • Snarky D

    I hope this tastes better than the jobs recipe. That one was way too expensive and contains unemployment over 8% as far as the eye can see.

  • Owen007

    Trying to get people drunk before they can see potentially bad news? Certainly beats Obama’s usual “don’t believe your lying eyes” approach.

  • Catchance

    #ObamaBeerNames Hops and change.

  • TiLiNi

    Obama wants Americans to be too drunk to figure out his deceptions.
