President Obama and some friends are going to have beers tonight at the White House. The friends are actually enemies -- Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates and the Cambridge police officer who arrested him at his house, Jim Crowley.

The idea here is a well-worn one: that alcohol solves all our problems.

The exact beer list is a closely guarded secret, though there's talk of Bud Light, Blue Moon, and maybe Amstel.

If the president invited me to his house for a beer, I'd go with a Sam Adams Utopia. Sam Adams because it's distinctly American. Utopia because it's freaking expensive.
