If you’re not engaged in the current presidential election process, you’re either A) dead or B) a complete asshole. You pick. Whether you lean hard left or scary right or take-no-sides middle, there’s something for everyone in the current campaign cycle. The stakes are high and the cast of characters has never been more entertaining, at least not in modern history. I would’ve liked to see how Andrew Jackson’s campaign played out. By most accounts, that dude made Trump look subtle. Anyway, to help get you engaged in our political process, and because it’s President’s Day, we thought we’d honor the beers that were brewed in honor of current and past presidents of the United States.

Yards Brewing made the George Washington's Tavern Porter as part of its Ales of the Revolution Series. GW was a home brewer, which sounds cool, but I bet most dudes in the 1700s had a small room attached to their house specifically for brewing hooch of some sort.

Yards also did a Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale (TJ was our third president).

21st Amendment's Brew Free or Die IPA isn't explicitly named after a president, but that's Abraham Lincoln on the label, so you know.

Cigar City and Swamp Head teamed up in 2012 for the barrel-aged American barley wine, Roosevelt. Fun fact: Roosevelt was the president to repeal prohibition.
