Obama Sends Beer to Canadian Prime Minister

Beer, it’s not just a drink…it’s what presidential bets are made of!

Just ask President Obama who recently sent Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper after the two had wagered a case of beer on the outcome of the men’s gold medal Olympic hockey game.

According to the Los Angeles Times,

Obama made good on his bet Friday morning, sending Harper some Molson Canadian. He even included a case of Yuengling, the beer he would have desired had the U.S. claimed the gold.

Ambassador David Jacobson delivered the prize to a very pleased Harper.

“David, you guys always fulfill your promises to us, and we appreciate it,” Harper said.

But Harper’s pleasure will not be augmented by his beer of choice.

Harper’s spokesman Dimitri Soudas said the two cases of beer will be donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

Beer, it’s good for you AND your country.
