After single-handedly saving the lives of 37 American and Afghani soldiers from battle, Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dakota Meyer had one simple request: to drink with President Obama at the White House Brewery.
After his inauguration into the Oval Office, President Obama purchased a new home brewing kit and began developing his own beer -- the White House Honey Ale. This brazen move by Mr. Obama marks him as the only U.S. president to privately supply himself, friends and the staff with a microbrew. What's especially interesting is the reasons for the President's White House Brewery: it's eco-friendly. The entire process of home brewing cuts on emissions, allows for reused bottles and lets the brewmaster feed animals with the spent grain! With any luck, this habit of producing beers in the White House will set a tasty, carbon neutral precedent for incoming presidents.
And for the record, home brewing is entirely legal in Washington D.C., though not everywhere else in the U.S.
