WASHINGTON (AP) - You could call it the White House Beer Summit, Part II.
President Barack Obama is turning again to fermented alcoholic
beverages to find common ground between antagonists, this time fans of the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
For his Super Bowl party Sunday evening, Obama is offering
Yuengling Lager and Light, brewed in Pennsylvania, and Hinterland
Pale Ale and Amber Ale, all the way from Wisconsin. Independents
can pour down some White House Honey Ale if they like.
The rest of the menu for the 100 or so guests at the White House
bash is tailgate-friendly even if served inside the Executive
Mansion: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza and
Buffalo wings with sides of German potato salad, twice-baked
potatoes and assorted chips and dips.
