Celebrating with Obama beer

It's not just American supporters who are celebrating Barack Obama's Democratic party victory.

Half a world away in Kenya, people are toasting the American presidential candidate with "Obama" beer.

Obama's late father was Kenyan and many people there view Obama was a local son.

There's a Kenyan brew called Senator Keg, but it's been dubbed "Obama" beer since his campaign took off.

And "Obama" beer has been flowing this week.

Obama's uncle, who still lives in Kenya, says they'll be praying for his victory in November.
