Local goes Global

According to the Chicago Sun-Times President Obama paid off a soccer bet with British Prime Minister Cameron with 312 Wheat from Chicago's Goose Island.

While I applaud the President for choosing a smaller craft brewery for his payment of choice, I think his choice of beer could have been better. Goose Island makes some good beers, but 312 is not one of them. Perhaps Matilda next time?

Oh man. That could have caused an international incident. 312 is worst in class in my humble opinion. A wheat beer that simple cannot have enough citrus crammed into it.

It's true, 312 is a below average wheat beer. This is, however, the same President that chose Bud Light at his mini-Beer Summit. http://beeronthebrain.blogspot.com/2009/07/beer-beverage-culture-mediator.html

Maybe we should just be happy that he didn't offer up this: http://www.anheuser-busch.com/brandPages/budLightGoldenWheat.html
