I’ll admit that this is a bit obsessive, but our reader Alex got the wheels turning in my head and now they won’t stop.
I made a half-joking comment on the “Heroes get Beer” post that I hoped the beer Obama shared with Dakota Meyers was at least an Imperial Pilsner, and Alex said that was actually possible based on the lacing left on the glass. This got me to wondering what else we might be able to glean from the official White House photo, so I did what anyone with OCD and Photoshop would do and found the biggest image available online and enhanced it.
First off, good call on the lacing, Alex. That’s definitely not a Bud and probably not a White House home brew (I recall hearing they have brewed their own in the past). The color lends itself to a lager or a pilsner, one that’s very clingy. Can anybody else tease any other clues from the picture above? Any guesses what the beer might be?
Also, the beer you see is the one in front of the President. I chose it because the lacing was very clear on the top. Looking at it closely, I think it shows that our Commander in Chief likes his beer – that’s a pretty hearty first sip.
Anything else jump out at you here (besides the fact that I need a life)?
As always, let us know below!
Update: Bud Light has been ruled out! I’m happy to know that the White House doesn’t serve that crap! Thanks to FatCatKC for the intel.
