Comfort

A sense of comfort
That only comes from drinking
At his local pub

Without Saying Goodbye

My wandering mind
Already left for the pub.
I hope to catch up.

Reading Presidential Biographies

Sharing a few pints
With history’s leading men
By the pub window

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I’ve taken up the challenge of reading a biography of every US President. I’m about to start Millard Fillmore. It turns out that presidential biographies go well with beer.

He went to his local pub
Seeking clarity

Here for the Beer

Rolling into town
Seeing the sights is nice, but…
We’re Here for the Beer

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Tim and Amy run the Fort Putney Road Bed and Breakfast (and pub) in Brattleboro Vermont as well as the Here for the Beer video website and blog. Check them out online or better yet, go visit them and have a pint or two.

Puhoi Pub

Stream and tide combine
Carry me gently seawards
From the Puhoi Pub

Written by Rupert Morrish.

References: Puhoi Pub & Paddle: Ideal timing is to paddle up from Wenderholm on the incoming tide, spend two or three hours in the historic pub, then float back down again on the outgoing tide. Takes about an hour and a half up and an hour down. (Puhoi)
