A surprising anecdote from a White House pool report this morning:

Campaign official also offers up that potus was talking about white house beer, which apparently the white house brews, she said, and one cafe patron requested a bottle, so potus sent out to Ground Force One and gave him one.

And, in a subsequent pool report from press secretary Jay Carney's gaggle, we get this:

There was some extended discussion about beer brewery at the white house, which turns out a light and dark beer that carney said he had seen the president drink. No comment on how often Obama travels with beer.
