Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:
My husband and I divorced over religious differences.
He thought he was God, and I didn't.
Marriage is a three-ring circus:
Engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffering.
Wedding dress, size 8.
Worn once by mistake.
There are two times when a man doesn't understand a woman:
Before marriage and after marriage.
The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed way too qualified for the job.
Look Miss," said the foreman, "have you any actual experience in picking lemons?"
”Well, as a matter of fact, yes!" she replied. "I've been divorced three times."

Craft Beer of the Week Award
Brooklyn Local 1 - Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, New York, USA
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
An impressive gold, red, and black label announces Local 1 in a beautifully embossed, brown bottle with cork and cage. Upon the pop, aromas of earth, bready yeast, peaches, tropical mango, and honey-touched grains captivate the nose. In the glass, the hazy orange body supports a persistent white head, while swirls of Belgian lace stick to the sides. Made with demerara sugar, the volcanic soil imparts a minerally character to the flavor. Trace wisps of thyme blend with flavors of fresh melon, apple, nut bread, saison earthiness, tobacco, and honey. The palate warms in the 9% ABV and finishes dry.
Is it a Tripel, strong Saison, or a Belgian Strong Ale? Like a Trappiste Beer, Local 1 undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle...and true quality is reflected in the superb taste.
