Blog: Four more beers!

James Wilmore | 17 August 2012

Beer, it appears, is playing a leading role in this year's US presidential election campaign.

Barack Obama was recently caught on camera (see video below) at the 'Bud Tent', during the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. Ever the cool customer, Obama was not caught out by one wag asking him to buy a round. It then prompted calls of "four more beers!" But the good old president put his hand in his pocket.

USA Today this week also picked up on an old story that the White House has its own micro-brewery

Meanwhile, presidential VP candidate, Paul Ryan, seems to be more a Miller man, after it was reported he told a crowd in Milwaukee suburb, Waukesha: "My veins run with cheese, bratwurst, and a little Spotted Cow, Leine's, and some Miller."

Does that mean Mitt Romney is a craft beer drinker?
