The two crates of beer that were delivered for President Obama on Air Force One this afternoon.

United States President Back Obama will get his desire for a cold mug of Jamaican Red Stripe beer on Air Force One.

In fact, 48 bottles of the Jamaican beverage have been delivered to Air Force One for the American president.

A taste of the Jamaican Beer was one of two wishes the president made around 10 minutes before Air Force One landed at the Norman Manley International Airport on Wednesday night.

The other wish  – to visit the Bob Marley Museum  – was materialised in a surprise stop at the Hope Road-based landmark just over an hour after Obama touched Jamaican soil.

Today, Red Stripe sought to make the other wish come true, delivering two crates of beer at the Norman Manley Airport which were received on the President’s behalf by his Secret Service agents.
