The Inaugural Beer


Obama’s Inauguration, a moment in history that will be remembered forever!

As a tribute to the incumbent president, Sixpoint Craft Ales brewed what they call “Hop Obama Ale”. The beer is described as “a stout gone porter with kriek lambic.” We are told that the flavors are individually unique yet “…gain their solidarity from their indivisibility.”

So where do you find this celebratory ale?  While kegs of “Hope Obama” are not in every local pub we can tell you that a few of your local NYC pubs have them stored away to tap on inauguration day.

Where it can be found:

Vintage Irving – Near Union Square (120 E 15th St)

D.B.A – East village (41 1st Ave near 2nd st)

Can anyone out there help us with where it may be found around the nation come Jan. 20th???
