Leaves like confetti
Fall in celebration of
My freshly poured beer

Unrestrained hijinks
On a Wednesday afternoon
Instead of meetings

Happy Anniversary

Pliny the Elder
And succulent halibut
A celebration

Pliny the Elder

Photo and haiku by Captain Hops.

References: I was at Henry’s Tavern for my 10th Anniversary last week and finally got to taste Pliny the Elder. It was very nice. I also tried Damnation that night and it was also very good. (Please do not think that last choice was any kind of a reflection on my anniversary.)

Beer Haiku Daily is 4 Years Old

That beer I had saved
For a special occasion
Went all too quickly

Written by Captain Hops

References: On this day in 2005, the first haiku was published at Beer Haiku Daily. At least one haiku has been published every single day since then. That’s over 1460 beer haiku if anyone is counting.
