Did you know that Honey Ale was the first beer known to have been brewed in the White House? In January 2011, President Barack Obama purchased a home brewing kit with his personal funds. White House chefs brewed the beer using traditional methods, and a pound of honey collected from beehives on the South Lawn! President Thomas Jefferson brewed beer, but not within the White House, as far as we know. This Honey Ale soap bar doesn't have a pound of honey, but it IS made with local Kansas honey, and Newcastle Brown Ale. Enjoy!
