Politically Incorrect Beer Titles - Beer Fox Guide
While being part of a defined style within a hugely innovative society, craft beer creations often gain an extra jolt of prominence by virtue of their politically incorrect names - Just a touch of trenchant satire or a dusting of comical humor!

Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:

A plane is on its way to London when a blonde in economy class gets up and moves to the first class section and sits down.  The flight attendant watches her do this and asks to see her ticket. She then tells the blonde that she paid for economy class and that she will have to sit in the back.

The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to London and I'm staying right here."

The flight attendant goes into the cockpit and tells the pilot and the co-pilot that there is a blonde bimbo sitting in first class and that she belongs in economy and won't move back to her seat.

The co-pilot goes back to the blonde and tries to explain that because she only paid for economy she will have to leave and return to her seat.

The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to London and I'm staying right here."

The co-pilot tells the pilot that he probably should have the police waiting when they land to arrest this blonde woman who won't listen to reason.

The pilot says, "You say she is a blonde? I'll handle this. I'm married to a blonde. I speak blonde."

He goes back to the blonde and whispers in her ear, and she says, "Oh, I'm sorry," and gets up and goes back to her seat in economy.

The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and ask him what he said to make her move without any fuss.

"I simply told her first class isn't going to London."

Beer News:

Exsalonce Salon & Day Spa in Chicago is now offering men a "Beer Pedicure" for their tired, sidewalk-sore feet.  Once the domain of women, men now can enjoy a pampering soak in a foot-loosening macro-brew!  The hops and enzymes in beer soften calluses on the feet, while he softens the stressful edge of his day by simultaneously indulging his taste buds with a brew-in-hand.

Craft Brew of the Week Award:

Scheherezade - The Tap  Haverhill Brewery Inc, Haverhill Massachusetts, USA

Style - Flanders Oud Bruin

Opaque, cloudy walnut mahogany, with satin sheen like buffed wood beneath a short tawny head.  Nose is of sweet and sour cherries and red plums, with an aura of alcohol amidst light caramel.  Flavors are resplendent with apple, cherries, and woody maple sugar, with tart plums that add to the complexity.  Light bodied enough to satiate your thirst, yet meaty enough to satisfy a hunger for the brew.

Cheers!
