Canadian beer swap
In case you were wondering, the beer swap between President Obama and Prime Minister Cameron at the G8 in Canada was 24 bottles of Goose Island 132 for 24 bottles of Wychwood Hobgoblin. Goose Island is based in Chicago, Obama's home base, while Wychwood is in Cameron's Witney constituency. Goose Island is a major step up for Obama, who infamously drank Bud Lite at the White House last year when he was sorting out a dispute between a Black American Professor and a white cop.
