WASHINGTON--Turns out that not only does the White House brew its own beer--President Barack Obama took some of the brew along on his Iowa bus trip.

On the second day of a three day swing--which took Obama to the Bud Tent at the Iowa State Fair--Obama talked beer with a man in Knoxville, Iowa. Obama offered the man a sample--that was stowed on his campaign bus.

During the press gaggle, reporters asked about the beer. Obamafoodorama first disclosed the White House was brewing beer.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said it comes in light and dark and "It is superb. It is quite good.
....I think I've only tried the light, and it's quite refreshing."
