President Obama plugs Chicago’s Goose Island beer

Aamer Madhani, USA TODAY 6:41 p.m. EST February 25, 2014

You can’t buy a celebrity endorsement like this one.

In an aside in his remarks at a White House event to announce the establishment of two manufacturing hubs in Chicago and Detroit, Obama offered a presidential endorsement to Goose Island Beer Co., a once small brewery in Chicago that opened in the late 1980s when hardly anyone was drinking craft beer.

Obama, showing a little hometown boosterism, noted that the Chicago manufacturing hub that is being awarded $70 million in federal money will be established on Goose Island, in the shadow of where “a very superior beer” also happens to be brewed

“I’m just letting you know,” Obama told the crowd at the White House event, which included Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. “A little hometown plug there. Feel free to use that, Goose Island.”

The Chicago-based brewery was purchased by beer behemoth Anheuser-Busch InBev in 2011, and the beer is now available in all 50 states.

You can read the news from its source here.

 

Start from 2:30 mark to get to the Goose Island mention.
