The White House has released the recipes for two varieties of honey-laced beer it has been brewing for President Obama. Chef Sam Kass posted the how-to for White House Honey Brown Ale and Honey Porter on the White House blog in response to a petition from home brewers who were curious about the presidential beer. One of the secret ingredients might be tough to duplicate. “All of our brews have honey that we tapped from the first ever bee-hive on the South Lawn,” Kass wrote. “The honey gives the beer a rich aroma and a nice finish but it doesn’t sweeten it.” The ales are the first beers ever created at the White House. Kass noted that George Washington brewed beer, but that was at Mount Vernon before the White House was even built.
