I might drink to that!
Check out this unusual request under the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act).
While I admire the guy's moxie, I think I'd need to taste it before I asked for the recipe. It's not like Barack Brewing is in the same league with Sam Adams, Yard's or even most brewpubs, after all.
And he's certainly not the first Prez to hop into brewing. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were brewers, and even wily Ben Franklin had a recipe for spruce ale. Interestingly, Yard's Ales of the Revolution Series pays homage to them, and Jefferson's is a PubScout fave.
If this guy gets the recipe and writes a review of the beer, The PubScout will keep you posted.
