Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:
A woman and her husband interrupted their vacation to go to the dentist. "I want a tooth pulled, and I don't want Novacaine because I'm in a big hurry," the woman said. "Just extract the tooth as quickly as possible, and we'll be on our way." The dentist was quite impressed. "You're certainly a courageous woman," he said. "Which tooth is it?" The woman turned to her husband and said, "Show him your tooth, dear."
From Molson Coors:

Molson Kick - A lager with caffeine in a captivating aluminum bottle.
Craft Brew of the Week Award:
Town Hall Maibock - Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery, Minneapolis Minnesota, USA
Style - Maibock
Crystal clear, deep copper, touched with crimson! This beauty is topped with an ivory head that settles to wispy rings of delicate lace.
Aroma is a seductive blend of bready malts and caramel dipped biscuit. A lightly toasted palate of Munich and Vienna malts is touched with the tantalizing spiciness of ever-so-light hops. Highly drinkable!
