Super Bowl Frenzy: Obama Super Bowl Party To Include Green Bay Beer

Next game: February 6th at Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Super Bowl party at the White House will have a little Green Bay flavor.

President Barack Obama's party will include beer from Hinterland Brewery in Green Bay. Several cases of pale ale and amber ale have been shipped to Washington in time for the big game.

Hinterland owner Bill Tressler calls the opportunity "real cool." He says it'll be nice to get some feedback -- hopefully positive.

Head brewer Joe Karls says it's exciting to brew beer for a president. He and Tressler say the honor is a feather in their cap.

Tressler and Karls aren't sure how the White House found out about their beer. They suspect their recent brewing awards may have played a part.

WGBA-TV says 200 people are expected at the party.
