Official White House Photo by Pete Souza (NORFOLK, Va.) — President Obama pulled into Fire Station 14 in the city of Norfolk, Va. He was on his way home from his last pre-convention campaign rally Tuesday to hand-deliver a case of White House-brewed beer.

“I’m going to call you up and find out what you think,” he told the firefighters on duty.

“Should we wait until tomorrow to drink it?” one asked.

“It needs to be chilled, it’s been sitting in my trunk,” the president warned.

The White House revealed the recipe for the president’s special homebrew over the holiday weekend. He’s been downing beers at campaign stops over the summer, seeming to underscore his theme of supporting America’s middle class.

The case of White House beer was placed on the rear bumper of a Norfolk fire truck, apparently 12 bottles each of the White House Honey Ale and Honey Porter brewed with honey from hives on the White House South Lawn.
