What's that joke about Miller Light and having sex in a canoe? Nevermind, if you're a federal employee, you can now get a pint of any kind of beer -- even a frosty pint of craft beer -- for free anytime today at one of the participating Tuesday Brewsday locations in St. Paul.

Though it's a sorry consolation for lost wages and a defunct government, furloughed federal government employees will be able to claim a free beer at participating St. Paul bars every Tuesday until the government shutdown ends.
