What Will Obama Drink? (WWOD?)

Rarely has beer been so elevated in the public discourse; President Obama's much anticipated heart-to-beer with Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. has all kinds of ale-drinkers talking about what might be served...

Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. told the Globe earlier this week that he prefers Red Stripe, which is brewed in Jamaica, or the German beer Beck's.

Blue Moon, a Belgian-style beer brewed by Coors, seems to be the choice for Cambridge police Sergeant James Crowley. That's what he reportedly was seen sipping at Tommy Doyle's Irish Pub in Kendall Square Friday when Obama rang him to invite him to Washington, according to the New York Daily News.

President Obama, however, will be drinking a Bud Light.
