London: Singer Marc Anthony treasures the unique honey beer gifted to him by US first lady Michelle Obama.

Anthony was gifted a beer brewed at the White House by US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, during his recent visit to Washington, D.C.

"Michelle (Obama) told me to take a White House beer with me. It`s brewed there, I believe, (by) the local beekeeper; it`s like honey beer. I was like, `There`s White House beer...? Oh my god`. So I tried it and she`s like, `Put it in your bag.`" contactmusic.com quoted the 41-year-old as saying.

Apart from beer, "The I Need to Know" hitmaker also loves collecting handwritten letters and artifacts from all of America`s presidents.
