There is hope for the beer aficionados who want the recipe of President Obama’s “White House Honey Ale,” made in part from honey from First Lady Michelle Obama’s South Lawn beehive.

As ABC News has covered before, the honey ale first came to light when President Obama served it to his guests at the White House during the 2011 Super Bowl, and then again on St. Patrick’s Day. Most recently, it became known that the president carries the beer with him on the campaign trail, where he offered a bottle to a potential voter in Iowa.

“I am not aware of any plans at this time to divulge the secret recipe,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said yesterday when asked about the recipe.

But last night on twitter, Carney wrote that enough people signed the “We the People” petition, the recipe would be released:

“Got a Q today on @wethepeople petition asking us to share WH beer recipe: wh.gov/4y9b If it reaches the threshold, we’ll release it,” Carney tweeted.

There’s a 25,000-signatures threshold.

So far fewer than 5,000 have signed the petition.
