Regardless of your politics, a brew with the president would be pretty cool. While you wait for your invitation to the White House, try one of Northern Brewer’s White House beer recipe kits ($37+). When that call does come through, you’ll be able to wax intellectual with the leader of the free world about “sweet caramel and toasty Munich malts” in the original Honey Porter, or “strong tones of biscuit and toffee” in the Honey Ale.
Veteran home brewers can purchase only the ingredients, starting at $37, while those just diving in to
politics brewing can get an $80 starter package. The real stuff uses sweetener from the First Lady’s apiary, but we recommend avoiding the topic of Michelle’s honey — the Secret Service shoots very well. Both the porter and ale take about four weeks; add shipping time, and you might suitably toast the election results or drown your sorrows. Beer, of course, knows no party affiliation.
