Americans have loved their booze since long before Memorial Day became an occasion both to commemorate fallen soldiers and throw back a few. This includes many U.S. presidents; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Roosevelt, and Richard Nixon were all enthusiastic drinkers. Barack Obama moved the ball forward last February when he served his homemade brew during this year's White House Super Bowl celebration—a first for a president.
Obama is just one member of a large cabal of world leaders who love a good beer.
