spicy beer candied bacon


This is the time of year that we entertain constantly. Every weekend, we invite anywhere from two to a dozen friends over for dinner. An invitation on Friday means casual homemade junk food. Pizza, nachos, burgers – stuff you’d order at a drive through except I make it. Saturday night is usually the night I put on the dog.

white house beer recipes

Reprinted from the White House Blog

Inspired by home brewers from across the country, last year President Obama bought a home brewing kit for the kitchen. After the few first drafts we landed on some great recipes that came from a local brew shop. We received some tips from a couple of home brewers who work in the White House who helped us amend it and make it our own. To be honest, we were surprised that the beer turned out so well since none of us had brewed beer before.

As far as we know the White House Honey Brown Ale is the first alcohol brewed or distilled on the White House grounds. George Washington brewed beer and distilled whiskey at Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson made wine but there’s no evidence that any beer has been brewed in the White House. (Although we do know there was some…
