White House Meeting Scheduled for Beer O’Clock
It’s time for President Barack Obama, Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Police Sgt. James Crowley to sit down together in the White House and pound some brewskies, and the beer companies are competing to promote their products: Beer brewers beg for White House berth.
Ain’t that America?
“Yuengling is proud to be recognized as America’s Oldest Brewery,” a company spokesman told POLITICO. “Family owned and operated since 1829, we’ve been a part of conflict resolution for over 180 years!”
A rep for Sierra Nevada said: “We believe that we are the perfect fit for the matter at hand, and a great choice to represent and facilitate the resilience and understanding of the American people. Sierra Nevada [can] reinforce the idea that whether black or white, rich or poor, we are all first and foremost Americans. American citizens should support American beer.
Think global, drink local.”
I hope the President has arranged designated drivers for Gates and Crowley. Wouldn’t want anyone ending up with a DUI after this.
