They are made with honey harvested from the White House bee hive.  The Associated Press says the recipe also includes light malt extract, gypsum, yeast, amber crystal malt, and corn sugar.

The President bought all of the supplies used by the White House chefs to make the beer.

White House historians say Obama is the first president to have liquor brewed on the White House property.
