What They Drank at the White House

Clockwise from left: Buckler, Sam Adams Light, Blue Moon, Bud Light.

No one gathered for the picnic summit yesterday evening at the White House opted for craft beers, but maybe they’ll one day indulge our brewers’ recommendations in a more secluded setting. As expected, the president had a robust and flavorful Bud Light. Henry Louis Gates Jr. nursed a reliably dadlike beer: Sam Adams Light. Sergeant James Crowley took nonthreatening sips of Blue Moon. And vice-president Joe Biden drank a beer we never heard of: Buckler. We know nothing about it because it’s Heineken’s nonalcoholic brand. Say it ain’t so, Joe!
