As part of a broader effort to connect with average Americans, President Obama on Tuesday night drank beer and played pool at a brewpub in downtown Denver.
Mr. Obama was joined at the Wynkoop Brewing Co. by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat and one of the brewery’s co-founders.
After ordering beers, the governor challenged Mr. Obama to a game of pool — and lost badly.
Despite a slow start, the president, playing solids, won handily and told reporters to note that Mr. Hickenlooper still had five balls left on the table.
“Did you record that?” Mr. Obama asked the press.
“I take a little longer to warm up,” Mr. Hickenlooper explained.
