White House Beer Recipe Released The White House has released its beer recipes in a blog post titled "Ale to the Chief." Buzz about the White House beer recipes first began when Obama told an Iowa man his bus was stocked with beer brewed at the White House. A Reddit user then submitted a Freedom Of Information Act request for the recipes, and thousands signed a We The People petition to reveal the secrets behind the brews. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney promised the recipes would be released if the We The People petition reached the 25,000-signature threshold. Then, during an August 29 AMA on Reddit, Obama promised the recipe would "be out soon! I can tell from first hand experience, it is tasty." See the recipes below, and watch a video about the White House brews above.
