Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Home brewing kit company Craft a Brew announces it will sell a kit to brew the White House Honey Ale at home. On September 1st, after a long public campaign aimed at getting the White House to release their famous White House Honey Ale recipe, they were successful and the White House officially posted the recipe on the White House blog.
President Obama has been seen drinking this beer on multiple occasions after he purchased home brewing equipment last year and asked the White House chefs to head the brewing operation.
Craft a Brew, maker of high-quality home beer making kits, has taken the recipe for the White House’s Honey Ale and scaled it down so customers can brew the famous beer in their own kitchens with their kit. They are using the same ingredients and methods that the White House used to create their beer. In an effort to ensure authenticity, Craft a Brew met with a honey expert in Washington DC to source the closest possible match for the honey that comes from the White House’s garden which is included in the original honey ale.
They consulted with Jeff Miller of the non-profit http://www.DCHoneybees.com to source the most authentic honey available: "We collect all of our honey from hives located in the District of Columbia. Before this year, we have never sold our honey to outside sources. This honey comes from Georgetown, just a few blocks from downtown and the White House. You will detect a hint of mint, and some light sweetness that comes from our abundant green canopy and urban gardening movement".
The White House Honey Ale beer brewing kits are priced at $48, available on CraftABrew.com, and “include everything you need to turn you from beer drinker into beer brewer.”
