He faces the longest night
With a rye smile

Sara Buckwheat Ale

Playful capers kiss
Delicate salmon fillets
Sara smiles on

Written by Captain Hops.

References: My brother came by yesterday with a nice looking salmon fillet and a bottle of Sara Buckwheat Ale he picked up from the Wine Underground. The salmon was perfectly grilled and the deep brown Sara Buckwheat Ale proved a deserving match. At the end of the evening, I beat him in chess for the first time in 35 years. Twice.
