The Last Drop

It’s raining. Drip… Drip…
I try to get the last drops
Out of the bottle

Adoration Ale at Max’s

Slick wet cobblestones
A cold walk to Max’s for
Adoration Ale

Palo Santo Marron

Rains pour and winds howl
But I am warm and toasty
Curled up with my beer

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I picked up a pack of Palo Santo Marron made by Dogfish Head Brewery. What a tasty and potent drink. It can really beat back a chilly, windy, rainy, fall night with a stick.

Rain

Rain, rain, go away.
Come again some other day.
My beer is outside.

Written by Dave Undis.

Editor’s Note: If you are from the Pacific Northwest, please disregard this post. We know rain won’t keep you from anything much less beer.

Marching for Babies

Marching for Babies
In the cold Baltimore rain
Must be worth a beer

Premature baby and quarter

Photo and haiku by Captain Hops.

References: Today was the Baltimore area March for Babies. It rained. We walked anyway. It’s worth it.

Why do we walK? Well, I’ve thought about having a “Beer for Babies” fundraiser in support of the March of Dimes. But I’m afraid people may get the wrong idea. Maybe next year.

Thing of the Day: If you can spare a dime, please consider contributing to the March of Dimes.
