The most-anticipated beer of the Obama Administration is set to take place on Thursday at 6 p.m., a White House official told the Herald. On Friday, President Obama announced the peace draft to be shared with Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. to discuss the scholar’s controversial arrest on July 16.
Hey, what problems can't be resolved over a beer...unless you're in a Tennessee bar and the guy you are trying to reconcile with is carrying a concealed .45.
So, what's on the menu?
The beer selection for Thursday’s meeting is not known. Crowley prefers Blue Moon beer. Gates likes Beck’s and Red Stripe. The president drinks Budweiser.
The most powerful man in the world likes to drink...wait for it...Budweiser!?!
Well, at least he didn't say Pabst. The dude could have any beer he wants and he's going with the classic Amerikan swill. Damn, if I was president I'd turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a tap room featuring the finest West Coast IPAs, Belgian ales and German Oktoberfest brew imaginable.
I'm not the only one who thinks Obama should be more liberal and adventurous in the beer department. Here's a completely unscientific poll by NPR listeners. The verdict is near unanimous.
