Note: Not to be out-cooled, the Obama White House has officially trod into micro-brewing territory. President Obama recently shared a pint of White House Honey Ale, made of course, from honey harvested from the White House bee hive, with Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer. Though both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson dabbled in fermenting, this is the first time beer has been brewed at the White House. (Boise Weekly October 12, 2011)
