Beer Fox Tip of the Week:

Forget the flat, watery Macro idea of a light beer!  Watch your carbs and calories this summer with flavorful craft beer from New Belgium Brewing Company, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.

Skinny Dip is New Belgium's newest Summer Seasonal, with only 110 calories and 7 carbs in 12 ounces of golden elixir.  Aromas are of sweet malt, balanced by a fresh citrusy lemon and lime nose.  It splashes with citrus crispness across the lips, while Cascade Hops merge with the fresh bread sweetness of malt.  A thirst-quenching brew for those immersed in Summertime activities or relaxing by the pool.

Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:

Recently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre.  However, after planning the crime and getting in and out past security, he was captured only 2 blocks away when his Econoline ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied:

"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."
One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out to God... "Lord, I have a problem!"

"What's the problem, Eve?"

"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, and that hilarious comedic snake, but I'm just not happy."

"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.  "Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples."

"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."

"What's a 'man,' Lord?"

"This man will be a flawed creature, with many bad traits.  He'll lie, cheat, and be vainglorious; all in all, he'll give you a hard time.  But, he'll be bigger, faster, and will like to hunt and kill things.  He will look silly aroused, but since you've being complaining, I'll create him in such a way that he will satisfy your... ah, physical needs.  He'll be witless and will revel in childish things like fighting and kicking a ball about.  He won't be too smart, so he'll also need your advice to think properly."

"Sounds great," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.  "What's the catch, Lord?"

"Yeah, well.... you can have him on one condition."  "What's that, Lord?"

"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant, and self-admiring...So you'll have to let him believe that I made him first...So, just remember... it's our secret... Woman-to-woman!"

Craft Brew of the Week Award:

Red Hydrant Ale - Big Dog's Brewing Company/Draft House, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Style - English Style Brown Ale

Pours deep copper red with small white head and spidery lacing that decorates the interior perimeter of the glass.  Sweet waves of caramel and toffee swirl in the air.  Malt, light peaches and caramel meet the palate, with a touch of hop bitterness for balance.  Mouthfeel is smooth and lingering on the tongue.
