Got a Q today on @wethepeople petition asking us to share WH beer recipe: http://wh.gov/4y9b If it reaches the threshold, we'll release itThat was on August 23.

There was some buzz again this month again regarding the beer being brewed at the White House. It started with the reveal of a "White House Honey Ale" at President Obama's 2011 Super Bowl Party. Later, there were erroneous reports that more homebrew was being served during White House St. Patrick's Day Events. Last September, President Obama served a White House Honey Blonde Ale at the behest of Medal of Honor awardee, Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer, on the Rose Garden patio. Two weeks ago, the President confirmed that the small homebrewing setup was still operating, and that a supply of the beer is kept in stock. Mr. Obama even gave a bottle of the Honey Ale to a customer during a campaign stop in Iowa. It's know that there are at least three varieties of White House homebrew: the Honey Ale, Honey Blonde Ale, and a Honey Porter, all made with, you guessed it, honey from the beehive in the White House Kitchen Garden...
