So much can be (and has been) said about the political shenanigans involved in last week’s “beer summit”. I will leave such commentary to more qualified folks. What I’d like to discuss are the beer choices of the participants.
The cop made a respectable choice, going with a pint of Blue Moon (I’m not a personal fan of Belgian Whites; but Blue Moon is at least a semi-adventurous brew). The Prof. represented his home town well by going with a Samuel Adams. Ok, it was Sam Adams Light; but still, what more can we expect from a stuffy, liberal academic? What really blew me away was Pres. Obama’s choice. Our Commander-in-Chief, the Leader of the Free World, calls a beer summit; and he downs a Bud Light. Travesty! Don’t even get me started about our VP showing up later with a non-alcoholic selection. I mean talk about emboldening our enemies!!
If ever elected President (no one hold their breath), I promise to proudly represent our great nation by downing real, manly beer for all to see. For my first beer summit, I think I’d down this little beauty.
