Best Beer for Drinking in Politics (2010)

Blue Moon

It's not easy to smooth over the rocky road of race relations. Luckily, the nation has Blue Moon, a smooth, Belgian-style wheat beer first brewed in 1995 inside Coors Field at what is now called the Blue Moon Brewing Company at the Sandlot. And when President Barack Obama held his now-famous beer-diplomacy session last summer on the White House lawn with Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge, Massachusetts, police Sergeant James Crowley, Blue Moon was Crowley's brew of choice. Whether it's baseball or politics, Blue Moon makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
