As far back as Fifth Millennium BC and even earlier, beer was used for nourishment, enjoyment, to cure what ails you and to solve problems. Beer was used as a form of currency in African civiliazations. In American history, taverns served as courts where issues and conflicts were resolved. Thus the "Beer Summit" isn't exactly new but we think it's a pretty cool thing to revive. Cheers to that!

BEER SUMMIT: THE CURE FOR WHAT'S ALE-ING YOU???
President (and Brewer) Obama is the first president to brew at the White House. He also grows hops too! A few years ago he released his flagship White House Honey Ale recipe and we had a chance to brew it-we think he missed his calling. We've already invited him to come to the Harlem Brew House when he leaves the White House.
Governor and Brewer John Hickenlooper (pictured) visited Harlem in 1995.
