Full marks to the Half Moon Bay Brewing Co. of California for its ingenious “alection” campaign. The company has re-branded bottles of one of its ales with Obama and McCain labels and is asking customers to pick their favorite – a little vote early and vote often action, if you will. The company is tracking sales of pints at its brewery and bottles to distributors. You wouldn’t be surprised with the mock election results so far — Obama leads by a 4-to-1 margin — because the beer is distributed only in Democratic-leaning California. At least it goes to show that in this sometimes nasty election cycle, Democrats and Republicans can unite behind their love of beer.
