Beer: George Washington, John Adams, and Grover Cleveland

All three of these commanders in chief were said to have been hopheads. Washington favored English-style porter (apparently it was brewed quite frequently at Mount Vernon), but the honor of biggest presidential beer geek goes to John Adams, whose wife made a mean hard cider and who allegedly started regularly drinking beer for breakfast at age 15. (Don’t worry, folks, the drink had a much lower alcohol percentage back then.)
