White House Brewing Raising Funds to Brew Honey Ale

New, 1 comment

Sure, several breweries expressed interest in reproducing the White House Honey Ale when the recipes were released last week, but now some homebrewers have plans in the works for a brewery devoted exclusively to the White House beers. White House Brewing Company just launched a Kickstarter campaign claiming to be "the world's first crowd-sourced, crowd-organized brewery" — with the goal of producing the White House beer:

Our home brew, though mighty, is too small, so we need to grow bigger. Kickstarters, this is where you come in. Join us on our amazing journey to up-size to a brewery that could finally appease America's thirst for the White House beer.

They've only raised $320 in the first few days of a campaign that aims to reach $50,000. The Kickstarter project is DC-based, but since they plan to be a brewery of the people and for the people, the theoretical brewery's location would be wherever funders desire: "Every choice will be made democratically, with every backer getting a vote in even the most minute of detail." Beyond the brewery dream, they're also planning to sell homebrew kits.
