White House and White House chef Sam Kass. Obama made history when he
purchased a home brewing kit and then alongside chef Kass made White House
Honey Ale, the first beer known to have actually been brewed in the White House.

shared Super Bowl ads of all time starred the Budweiser Clydesdales.
The snifter glass is best for beers with a strong smell. You can swirl the
beer around more easily which releases aromas that enhance the beers
flavors. Use a snifter for wheat wines, quads, and strong ales.
Fight a hangover with a high potency B-complex supplement before going to
bed. The B vitamins aid your body in metabolizing the alcohol carbohydrates
and also dilate your blood vessels, compensating for dehydration. Maltodextrin
is a nonfermentable carbohydrate that adds a silky mounthfeel to your beer.
It's use in lighter beers often leads to unwanted haze.
Brewing tip: If you add yeast to a too hot wort the yeast will die.
And that's not good if you want alcohol in your beer.

Witbier, or white beeer, is brewed with 45-50% wheat and

A neutron walks into a bar. “I'd like a beer” he says. The bartender
serves him. “How much will that be” asks the neutron. “For you” replies
the bartender, “no charge”. We didn't laugh either.
The quietest bar in New York City is Burp Castle where the bartenders
loudly shush patrons who speak above a whisper. Shuuuuuuuuuush!!
"There are two kinds of people I don't trust: people who don't drink
beerand people who collect stickers.” Chelsea Handler.
Originally brewed in England, pale ales get their name from the color of the malt
they are brewed with. The beers themselves are generally amber or copper in
color and tend to be of a light to medium body. Try making beer sweet potatoes -
it's easy. Boil the sweet potatoes, uncovered in 3 cups of beer or whatever
amount is needed to submerge them. Cook until tender. Enjoy
“Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long does
not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer.” Martin Luther

The hot new beer workout trend is called Beer Yoga. Breweries across the country
have adopted the tasty exercise class. Makes sense to us since beer is delicious
and yoga is good for you. The format is simple. You are given a beer, you roll out
the yoga mats and place the beer beside you. Most breweries classes are
designed for a variety of skill levels. But with positions such as downward dog,
warrior pose and other full body movements chances are you'll work up a thirst.
Pennsylvania liquor control authorities have decided restaurants can deliver beer
with food orders. Wine and spirits are not allowed to be delivered. Restrictions -
the beer has to be paid for over the phone by debit or credit card and retailers
must obtain transporter-for-hire licenses, which cost $700.
The word for a beer expert is cerevisaphile its derived from the Latin name
ofthe Roman goddess of agriculture, Ceres, and vis, meaning strength.
