Beer-ack Obama, Coming Soon To A Bar Near You

Not only will the Commander-in-Chief-elect begin his trek to the White House by pulling out of 30th Street Station on January 17, but he's also (indirectly) going to be a part of your drunken inauguration celebration! According to this article from The Washington Post, Brewery Ommegang was one of many breweries to get shot down by federal regulators at the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau when they attempted to title their latest presidential-themed beer "Obamagang." The beer has since been monikered "Inauguration Ale" and 600 kegs of it will be distributed among "select" bars in Philadelphia, along with Washington, New York, and other to-be-announced cities. No word yet if Blarney's or Smokes number among the chosen few.
