Tuesday is ELECTOR DAY. In Indiana, that means ALL DAY long.
Just a reminder: Since 2010, Indiana no longer labors under the restrictive blue laws that formerly forbade alcohol sales until the closing of the polls at 6:00 p.m.
This is good. We will be ready. Never again will you be compelled to accept an illicit half-pint of Kessler before following your party boss's instructions.
Both NABC locations will be open at 11:00 a.m. and serving beers of proven merit. Our time-tested Elector Ale (it makes democracy pointless) will be on special all day, and we may yet have a beery surprise or two -- like Electimus, which usually comes out of hiding only during presidential election years. Electimus is an eye-opening and aisle-crossing blend of Elector and Hoptimus. Supplies will be very limited.
I likely will be at Bank Street Brewhouse for the duration. The Public House will be rocking, too. Vote (and drink) early and often. Just for the fun of it, here's an original Elector poster from around 2003, followed by one of Tony Beard's More recent designs (his work is at top, too).
