Harper collects on beer bet with Obama
U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson delivered two cases of beer to the prime minister's residence at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.
Owing to Canada's 3-2 overtime victory over the United States in the gold-medal match in men's hockey, the U.S. ambassador brought Harper 24 bottles of Molson Canadian.
"To show there's no hard feelings, the president also threw in a case of Yuengling on top of the Molsons," Jacobson said.
Beer bet: What's the best thing you've ever won?
Yuengling is a Pennsylvania brewery called the oldest in the United States. A case of Yuengling was Obama's request if he had won the friendly wager.
The cases of beer are to be donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, a spokesman for the prime minister said.
Earlier this month, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs wore a Team Canada hockey jersey at his daily press briefing after he lost a bet with Dimitri Soudas, a spokesman for Harper.
