Soon a citizen filed a Freedom Of Information Act requesting the recipe, and 25,000 people signed a We The People petition, clamoring for the secrets behind the brew. When word of the public's interest reached the President, he promised to share the recipe with everyone. And as it turns out, making a tasty home brew is not too difficult. So from the White House to you, here is how to do it:
Unlike the home distilling of hard liquor, or moonshine, which is still a felony, states allow you to brew your own beer. You can buy a home brewing kit at your local spirits store. Sometimes what begins as a hobby leads to a regional business. Here are some delicious local brews to try:
If you have a favorite local beer, please add it under comments. Me: I love Canadian (Moosehead) and Belgian (Blue Moon) beers too and hear there are excellent local Asian (Japanese and Indian) beers; and of course, I'm dying to try a White House Honey Ale. So Mr. President, the next time you're in town on your campaign bus, pleassse stop by.
