In perhaps the first of it’s kind, Barack Obama will host the first beer summit at the Whitehouse. Don’t hold your breath waiting for your invitation, only Henry Gates and the Cambridge police officer that arrested him are invited. But, what beer will they be drinking?
According to the Whitehouse and CNN, Obama will be drinking Bud Light, the police officer will have Blue Moon, and Red Stripe for Gates. However, some local state representatives urged the president not to drink Budweiser as it’s owned by a Belgian company. They were also discouraged from serving Miller or Coors which are owned by UK companies.
Instead, locals have suggested the Boston, U.S. owned Sam Adams be served. When asked, Sam Adams founder Jim Koch stated that he would be delighted to serve his beer there. In fact, he even offered to brew a special beer just for the get together.
So what do you think? Sam Adams or Bud Light???
