What will I be drinking for Inauguration?

Today brings a new president to the American people in Barack Obama. The country seems to be pumped for a change and it looks like the Inauguration is going to be an event in and of itself. So with all of this hype, I’ve been trying to pick out what beer I would enjoy best.

I’ve been doing some researching, and Obama is a beer drinker! There have been numberous news stories of him stopping in at local bars on the campaign trail and I think that’s pretty cool. So what does Obama order when he goes out, according to this story, it was Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR). I said the guy was a beer drinker, not a good beer drinker.

So that leads me to my choice, and I’ve narrowed it down to two beers. The first is Fat Tire from the New Belgium Brewing Company. I have two reason behind this choice, one becasue the brewery’s name have New in it and the second is becasue it is a damn good beer.

My second choice is Obama’s favorite, Pabst Blue Ribbon. I’m really not a big fan of the stuff, but it’s the man’s day, I might as well drink his beer. PBR might also go down a bit easier if you play the Barack Obama Drinking Game (you can see the rules below). What are you drinking on Inauguration Day?

Barack Obama Drinking Game

Take a drink everything Obama does or says one of the following things:

  • Says hope
  • Says change
  • Talks about a hatchet or scalpel
  • Anything about war
  • Mentions Michell Obama
  • Uses the word partisan or bi-partisan
  • Complements Joe Biden
  • and finally, if you really want to get crazy, drink every time he takes a long pause or uses slow but direct hand motions
