President Barack Obama notoriously travels with his home brew. And after popular demand, the White House has released the recipes for Obama’s two beers, a honey ale and a honey porter.

While home brew enthusiasts won’t be able to duplicate the recipe exactly without breaking into First Lady Michelle Obama’s beekeeping operation, they can certainly come close.
