Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau pictured enjoying beer and 'catching up' at a brewery in Ottawa
Trudeau drank the brewery's own beer called the Alpha Bomb IPA while Obama went for the Canadian Amber
Former president of the United States Barack Obama and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau's iconic "bromance" is back on social media after the pair were pictured enjoying pints of beer and a "catch up" in a brewery in Ottawa, Canada. Obama met Trudeau at the Big Rig Brewery on Friday, May 31, during a trip to the country.
The Huffington Post reported that Trudeau shared an image of the pair on Twitter on Saturday morning. The Big Rig Brewery also posted a few of the meet on its Instagram page. 47-year-old Trudeau tweeted: "Always great to catch up, @BarackObama. À la prochaine!" which translates to until we meet again in French.
The brewery posted a few images on their Instagram page and wrote: "Yesterday was a good day. What an honour it was to have @justinpjtrudeau and @barackobama stop by our brewery. Our doors and taps are always open. Cheers!"
A second image of Obama and Trudeau with the employees of the brewery was captioned: "Thanks again to @justinpjtrudeau @barackobama and their amazing team for spending some time with us. It definitely made our day!"
The Huffington Post reported that Trudeau drank the brewery's own beer called the Alpha Bomb IPA while Obama went for the Canadian Amber. Event and social media manager at Big Rig Brewery, Sophie Prescott, told the outlet: "Yesterday was about friendship and respect — two friends catching up over a beer. It was an incredible day, and we’re happy to provide them with a cool spot to just hang out and have a pint."
The pair of dignitaries have had a very close relationship with Obama having dined with Trudeau at the Liverpool House in Montreal in 2017. The pair were spotted laughing and joking in the Canadian parliament in 2016.
57-year-old Obama was in Canada to talk about his life after his presidency. CBC reports that he told a crowd of thousands that he has "a little bit of a love affair with Canada".
