On his way home following his last pre-convention campaign rally, President Obama pulled into Fire Station 14 in the city of Norfolk and personally delivered a case of beer brewed at the White House.

“I’m going to call you up and find out what you think,” he told the firefighters on duty.

“Should we wait until tomorrow to drink it?” one asked.

“It needs to be chilled, it’s been sitting in my trunk,” the president advised.

Over the holiday weekend the White House revealed the special recipe of the President’s homebrew. He’s been downing beers at campaign stops over the summer seeming to underscore his theme of supporting America’s middle class.

The case of White House beer was placed on the rear bumper of a Norfolk firetruck, apparently 12 bottles each of the White House Honey Ale and Honey Porter brewed with honey from hives on the White House South Lawn.
