1. The White House Makes Beer

NPR interviewed Michelle Obama this week about gardening, but Reddit users were more interested in the mention of the White House's home-brewed beer. White House Honey Ale is the first homemade beer to have been made in the White House. As one commenter mentioned, there are now two additional styles being brewed: White House Honey Blonde Ale and White House Honey Porter.

Some of the most interesting things on Reddit are also the most unexpected. For instance, a post that's just supposed to make people laugh might leave users learning something new. Or maybe an interesting interview with a celebrity includes a moment that's fascinating, but has nothing to do with the original topic of discussion.

Those are some of the most valuable moments on Reddit. For example, this week users got a biology lesson in the comments of a funny bird photo. They also learned that the White House makes beer, which came up when Michelle Obama told NPR about gardening.
