In days not so long gone by Obama has showed an interest in holding beer summits, presumably to foster the idea that he’s one of the people instead of a Ivy League educated “1%’er” with little or no connection with- or understanding of we, the People.
In itself that’s no problem; Presidents are rarely from the masses. If Obama plans to revisit this campaign tactic though, it’s going to take reworking similar to his wealth redistribution campaign plank and the Obama Girl.
A Malty, Robust, Jobless Recovery Ale
Obama leads a charmed life though and, thanks to the Lagunitas Brewing Company, there’s the perfect beer for his next iteration of a beer summit – Wilco Tango Foxtrot.
Like Obama, WTF is rich and brown, but carries a harsh, bitter bite that is not normal in an American product. In the beer’s case it comes from Californian hops sensibilities
It’s noteworthy and apropos that Wilco Tango Foxtrot was supposed to be named “2010 Recovery Ale” but they said, “It’s 2011 and it STILL doesn’t look like we’ll be there anytime soon.”
If you can still afford it and tolerate the bite, hoist a glass of WTF in Obama’s “honor.”
