Bottles up, Canada.

President Obama made good on his bet with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper by sending over a couple of cases of beer more than two weeks after the countries faced off in hockey at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The leaders wagered a case of beer on each Olympics hockey matchup between Team USA and Canada, with our rivals to the north topping the US in the men's and women's competitions.

The friendly wager was announced on Twitter on Feb. 20.


Obama's National Security Council acted as the distributor. On Monday two cases of White House brew, Honey Porter and Honey Blond, were delivered to the Canadian Embassy.

And it looks like Harper is ready for the icy cold one Obama promised him.
