President Barack Obama presented White House-brewed beer to a group of Virginia firefighters Tuesday afternoon.

The AP reports Obama stopped at a fire and rescue station in Norfolk and presented beer to the battalion chief and four firefighters so they could "test it out."

"It's a whole case," Obama said. "I am going to call you up and see if we have the right recipe."

The White House released two of its beer recipes in a blog post titled "Ale to the Chief" on September 1. White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter were among the flavors given to the firefighters.

The AP reports:

Though the beer didn't have a label, the White House says it was a mix of bottles of honey ale, regular ale and dark ale. The Obama White House has been dabbling in homebrews of late, and it released a recipe over the weekend.

One of the firefighters at Norfolk Fire State No. 14, presumably on duty, asked Obama: "Should we wait until tomorrow to drink it?"

"I don't want to get you into trouble with the chief," the president responded.
