Determined to score a front row seat to history? Slipping the commander in chief a few cold ones probably wouldn’t hurt.
New Glarus Brewing Co. co-founder Deb Carey, who has been in and out of the White House for repeated small business roundtables, will be watching President Barack Obama deliver his latest State of the Union address alongside first lady Michelle Obama.
According to her local paper, the Wisconsin microbrewer got rather chummy with our elected leaders last fall, swapping suds with the first boozer — she delivered two wine bottle-sized of Serendipity, her apple-, cherry-, cranberry-fueled sour ale. POTUS, meanwhile, gifted her three 12-ounce bottles of highly coveted White House Honey Ale. And she garnered a peck on the cheek from Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.
The Brewers Association would like to believe Carey’s presence in FLOTUS’ box is a good sign the recently reintroduced Small BREW Act might finally slide through the 113th Congress.
Can’t a guy just enjoy having his drinking buddies around?
