Get Your Brew On: George Washington’s beer recipe to be recreated.

Via Gothamist:
There’s only one thing left to do after leading the American victory over Britain in the Revolutionary War… pour yourself a glass of beer. President Obama wasn’t the first one to crack open a cold one while in office—the New York Public Library just sent us George Washington’s handwritten beer recipe! (The guy really loved his beer.) They tell us that Coney Island Brewing Company has partnered up with them to recreate the concoction, which they hold the handwritten recipe to. They’re calling it: Fortitude’s Founding Father Brew (try saying that three times fast after a few), and you can get the full recipe as Washington intended it below (the 2011 version will be slightly modified). . .

I'll buy it. - Greg Pollowitz
