I love that they include the use of honey made from the bee-hive on the South Lawn and aside from that, the recipes seem easy enough to make for the home brewer.
“As far as we know the White House Honey Brown Ale is the first alcohol brewed or distilled on the White House grounds,” Kass writes. “George Washington brewed beer and distilled whiskey at Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson made wine but there’s no evidence that any beer has been brewed in the White House.”
In the video above, the White House takes you behind the scenes of their brewing process. It also doubles as a great ad for Brewer’s Best, the home brewing equipment used by many.
I never thought I’d say this, but McDonald’s Canada is killing it lately with their viral marketing videos. Before, they showed the world how McDonald’s preps its food for commercials and now they are revealing how to make the famous Big Mac dressing.
The reason these videos work is because they are informative, reveal a bit of insider knowledge from a large corporation, and ultimately humanizes McDonald’s. Now, it doesn’t mean I’m going to eat at McDonald’s anytime soon, but it’s fascinating to see a company try something uniquely unexpected and have it work. [via 22words]
If you can cook an egg, you can cook breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks — not only for yourself but for almost anyone else. There are things that turn people off at different times of day, but unless you’re a vegan, an egg is not likely to be one of them.
Consider me the type of person who loves eating eggs at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Lady Oyster and I have been jonesing on these beet/potato hash cakes with a poached egg on top for dinner. I don’t know if we invented the meal, but dang it’s so satisfying for dinner. Poached eggs can’t be beat … literally and figuratively, I suppose. Anyway, you can get a better look at the online egg combination poster at the NYT. [via laughingsquid]
