Teachable moments ...

What we got from the beer summit:

• It makes your skin crawl to hear Fox & Friends' Steve Doocy talk about beer (i.e. that Anheuser-Busch is no longer an American-owned company). Oh let's face it, hearing Steve Doocy talk about anything is nauseating.

• CNN, Fox, MSNBC and the 24-hour news cycle continue to boost Jon Stewart's career.

• The White House could probably stand to start a pint glass collection. (The Prez, Skip Gates, Sgt. James Crowley and Veep Joe Biden, a late addition to the lineup, all drank from mugs.)

• It's unlikely you'll see on BeerAdvocate a new rating for Bud Light under the user name POTUS.

• The Prez, Gates and Crowley all passed on Biden's idea to play Quarters.

• Despite having a brew, everyone could still taste the foot he stuck in his mouth that landed him at the summit. All except, the Veep ... Joe just keeps his foot there.

• No matter the reason, or the brand of beer, it should be noted that BEER was the drink of the day (except the Veep, who had an N-A malt beverage).
