Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:
Golfer: "Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake."
Caddy: "Think you can keep your head down that long?"
Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course."
Caddy: "Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth."
Golfer: "Do you think my game is improving?"
Caddy: "Yes sir, you miss the ball much closer now."
Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?"
Golfer: "You've got to be the worst caddy in the world."
Caddy: "I don't think so, sir. That would be too much of a coincidence."
Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time. It's too much of a distraction."
Caddy: "It's not a watch - it's a compass."
Golfer: "How do you like my game?"
Caddy: "Very good sir, but personally, I prefer golf."
Golfer: "Do you think it's a sin to play on Sunday?
Caddy: "The way you play, sir, it's a sin on any day."
Golfer: "This is the worst course I've ever played on."
Caddy: "This isn't the golf course. We left that an hour ago."
Golfer: "That can't be my ball, it's too old."

Craft Brew of the Week Award:
Red Wheat - Bear Republic Brewing Company, Healdsburg, California, USA
Style - American Pale Wheat Ale
Glistening, glittering, clear red liquid fills the glass, with thin, tight, long-lasting head that leaves tiny specks of white dew on the interior surfaces of crystal. Sweet malt notes fill the nose, while hops threaten to break loose, surrounding your head with swirls of hypnotic aroma.
Flavors of grainy wheat and assertive hops grab your taste buds and scream for attention. You have no choice but to answer the call. "More!" you say. "Bring it on and quench my thirst!"
