While the White House Superbowl menu was certainly nothing like our vegan alternative, I did like one specialty beverage unique to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

According to the Obama Foodorama blog, “White House Honey Ale” made its debut among invited guests like Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez.

“It uses one pound of honey from this year’s 160-pound harvest of honey from the White House Bee Hive, which sits beside Mrs. Obama’s South Lawn Kitchen Garden,” writes the site.

And before Glenn Beck chalks this up to a misuse of taxpayer funds, ObFo mentions that the Obamas paid for the micro-brewing equipment, “so there’s no impact on the national debt.”

Now if Michelle starts growing hops and barley this spring, I’ll really be impressed.

    Ummm… They are “paid” with tax dollars (stolen money). Everything they buy is with public money, so their insinuation that it doesn’t have in impact on the national debt ridiculous. Im glad they could find time to knock back some brew while Obama has sent more drone bombs into Pakistan killing more people than BUSH. I bet the families of the murdered civilians are really glad the Obama’s got to have a foot ball party. These people have zero respect for human or non-human life.

      President Ombama was elected by a majority and of course we pay our presidents but who would want to hear Aubrey’s snarley wretched response to a relaxing article about our ‘national’ game that most of America was watching. Our President is one of the coolest ever, to have an organic garden, to make their own beer, to care about the organic food movement, education, healthcare. And O didn’t want Bush’s war, who would, to help your friends in the arms race, maybe Haliburton needs another contract. Aubry must think drinking a brew when everyone else is is comparable to Bush’s 400 vacations during the 8 years of presidency. Anyone who knows a Democrat knows we are nonwar people. Hello!
