It’s Always Grilling Weather

Six inches of snow
Keeps my beer nice and cold while
I grill the rib eyes

After the Party

The cold morning finds
abandoned bottles and me
sitting listlessly

Lost

Lost with a bottle
Cold nights make me wish I was
Stuck on an island

Cold

A chill in the air
Must wear something on my hands
Beer bottle so cold

Winter Luau

With Fire Rock Pale
And Crock Pot Kalua Pig
I escape the cold

References: When it’s cold and icy here on the east coast, I dream about being back on the Big Island. I spent a summer there during my college years earning my keep by doing landscaping, working in a hotel rec department, and busing tables at luaus. It was a time of hard work, mischief, and adventure.

Sometimes, when I’m stuck here in the ice and snow, I try to get back there in my head. All it takes is a six pack of Fire Rock Pale Ale from Kona Brewing and some slow cooked Kalua Pig. Alright, I haven’t dug an imu in my yard and I really wouldn’t be able to finish eating a whole pig by myself. But this crock pot recipe seems to do the trick. Aloha!

Cursed Sunday Alcohol Laws

Stranded in the cold
With no beer for dinner guests
Cursed Sunday laws

Written by Captain Hops.
