It would not be the first presidential beer summit.

“Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are set to raise a pint together as part of plans for the G-8 summit. The U.S. president and Russian president will clink glasses in front of cameras, but away from the official venue,” reports The Irish Sun, with some glee - but no predictions on the leaders’ libation of choice.


They will have some company, apparently.

“Details of the off-site meeting involving all eight world leaders have already been drawn up. Names of guests for the event have been submitted to security chiefs, but the location remains top-secret,” the newspaper says.

Local officials, not to mention the proprietor of the pub in question, have time to plan, though. Situated at the five-star, 600-acre Lough Erne resort in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, the G-8 summit does not begin until June 17.
