Petitioners Demand That White House Reveal Its Honey Ale Recipe

By

"I think it’s time for beer," the petition concludes, attributing the quote to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Indeed, it's beer o'clock as over 3,000 people have signed an online petition on the Obama Administration's "We the People" online platform, demanding that the White House reveal the secret recipe for one of its three home brews, a honey ale that's brewed with honey from the White House beehive. The people are particularly upset that they have not been able to enjoy "the rewards of home brewed beer" like President Obama has, even on the trail in Iowa, the Des Moines Register reports. The petitioners are currently 21,626 signatures short of the 25,000 required to receive an official response from the White House. Even if the White House won't give up the recipe, at least the days of Prohibition have long since passed, so ale lovers can mourn the failure by getting drunk.
