Beer Fox Tip of the Week:

Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:
A man is walking by a brewpub and hears the patrons chanting, "Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!"
Quite curious about all this, he sees a hole in the door, looks in, and someone pokes him in the eye.
Everyone in the brewpub starts chanting "Fourteen! Fourteen! Fourteen!"
A federal court in Germany has overturned the German Purity Law of 1516, allowing a small brewer to add sugar syrup to its dark beer. The Reinheitsgebot had forbidden anything but malted grain, water, hops and yeast in the making of beer. This ended a ten year court battle for the
east German brewery.
Craft Brew of the Week Award:
Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, California USA
Style - American Pale Ale
This American Pale Ale is crystalline amber with a reddish sparkle and lovely off-white head that paints nice lacing down the sides of the glass. Hoppy, floral, piney and intense, with smooth balance. Highly drinkable!
