balanced and easy
all you need for a session
meant to be enjoyed
strong, brisk and pleasant
this Red Sky is certainly
a sailors delight
the glass and plate canvas gives
rise to perfection

References: It’s Beer Blogging Day, a.k.a. The Session. This month’s session is hosted by The Gastronomic Fight Club and the theme is Local Beer. All are welcome to participate. Simply publish a post on your blog about a beer brewed within 150 miles of your home and email Snekse.
I live in Baltimore and would like to highlight several of the nice local brews and brewpubs. First there is some more information about the beers highlighted above, and then some past haiku about other notable locals:
- Clay Pipe Brewing Company: They are relatively obscure, but their owner is very friendly and has a helluva memory. Their beers are very drinkable and can be found at bars, restaurants and liquor stores in central Maryland. I’ve previously written about their Pursuit of Happiness IPA.
- Clipper City Brewing Company: Home of the Heavy Seas brand of extreme beers. Anyone who has read Beer Haiku Daily for a while should be familiar with Clipper City. I have written about them before.
- The Brewers Art: This place is fantastic. If you are a beer lover in Baltimore, you should go here. Here is a previous haiku about Resurrection Ale.
- The Wharf Rat: Home of Oliver Ales and another must visit brewpub in Baltimore. They have locations in the Inner Harbor and Fells Point. I’ve written haiku about them before too.
- DuClaw Brewing Company: They have several locations but I have only been to the one in Fells Point. Every time I have been there, the beer was spectacular but the food was mediocre. If they could get a handle on the kitchen this would be at the top of my list. Disclaimer: it has been a while since I’ve eaten there, so it is quite possible they have gotten their act together on the food. Here are some previous haiku about DuClaw.
