This final note today.

It seems that what beer you drink might say something about your politics and how likely you are to vote. The folks over at the National Journal have done some analysis.

Heineken is the most Democratic beer, while Samuel Adams is the most Republican.

But here’s my gripe — most of the beers they surveyed? Nothing but fizzy yellow watery stuff. Where are the craft beers? The good beers? The real beers?

Here’s the chart NJ devised to track its partisan brews:
