Brewing Beer At The White House
All I could think while watching this is “that’s the same gear that WE use when we do this in our kitchen!”
I was surprised by a few things:
- Apparently, Obama’s the first president to have this done at the White House (that we know of).
- They’re not spending taxpayer dollars to do it, apparently this is coming out of the CiC’s salary and the brewers’ spare time, so the equipment’s the same basic starter kit anybody would have (plus a few more carboys, granted, but those are still homebrew supplies).
- The White House… has bees? THIS COUNTRY IS A DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, NOT A MONARCHY!
