President Barack Obama kicks off a week-long vacation in Martha's Vineyard on Sunday, and the small island off Cape Cod is abuzz about being back on the map as a presidential retreat.

If the president fancies a cold brew, the island's only microbrewery is ready with a toast of “Ale to the chief.”

Offshore Ale is putting the finishing touches on its presidential microbrew which he's dubbed “presidentiale.”

Merchants are also gearing up to welcome the first family and take advantage of the worldwide attention.

Even Bo, the first dog, can expect a warm welcome.

Friends Madi Coutts and Mona Rosenthal, who bake and sell homemade dog snacks have created what they call the "Beefy Bobama" and they're hoping to get some delivered to Bo.
