New Photo: President Obama Toasts Dakota Meyer With White House Homebrew

Another view of the Commander in Chief's historic tête-à-tête with the Medal of Honor recipient...
The White House has released the new photo, above, of President Obama toasting Medal of Honor hero Dakota Meyer as they shared beers on the Oval Office patio on Sept. 14. The first photo the White House released of the intimate manly moment between the Commander in Chief and the 28-year-old former Marine showed them leaning back in their chairs.

"President Barack Obama offers a toast to Dakota Meyer on the patio outside of the Oval Office, Sept. 14, 2011. The President presented Meyer with the Medal of Honor Sept. 15, 2011, during a ceremony at the White House," is the photo caption on the White House Flickr.

The President and Meyer drank White House Honey Blonde Ale, made with honey from the White House Beehive. The Obamas' chefs are the first to ever homebrew at the White House, according to curator William Allman, as first reported here on Obama Foodorama.

The White House also released the new photo, below, of the President, Meyer, and his grandmother Jean Meyer, taken on the day of the Medal of Honor Ceremony. First Lady Obama is in the background, but she's not mentioned in the photo caption.

"President Barack Obama shares a laugh with Jean Meyer, the grandmother of Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, second from left, as they and members of the Meyer family walk along the Colonnade of the White House, Sept. 15, 2011," reads the photo caption on the WH Flickr.
