Apparently, another president brewed his own beer. The one and only numero uno, George Washington brewed it at Mount Vernon. And supposedly, according to the commercials on television, maybe Samuel Adams did too. Probably not, though; they probably just used his name so they could target their market. Branding is everything, right? Besides, Sam Adams, if I remember correctly, wasn’t a president. I could be wrong, but I think he was a big wheel in the American Revolution, but didn’t scale the hierarchal-governmental mountain to the very tippy top.
All that being said I wouldn’t mind tasting a bottle of White House Ale. Just to taste what it’s like. Some of the home-brewed beers I’ve sampled in the past reminded me of battery acid. But I do have to admit that some have been quite good. Maybe even good enough to sell on the open market.
Still, I believe I’ll just stick with the horse I know – a nice, dry Merlot from Napa.
