I got this earlier this morning from Oskar Blues Brewing, a fitting bit of humor given today the Democratic National Convention begins in Denver, Colorado.
We all know this iconic Barack Obama poster, based on the title of his book, The Audacity of Hope. Well, Oskar Blues came up with their own version of the poster, emphasizing what those of us in the beer world all hope for: hops.
There will be all sorts of special beers made for the convention, including Liberally Hopped Ale (Great Divide), Obamanator (Wynkoop), Political Ale (Rock Bottom) and Ale to the Chief (Avery), to name a few.
Even Charlie Papazian, President of the Brewers Association, is asking “What Beer Would and Should Obama Drink?” on his blog, the Beer Examiner.
