Ominous

A threatening sky
Reflects ominously on
My Belgian Dark Strong

Brew Day Interrupted

Still contemplating
Braving the nasty snow storm
To keep my brew day

Snowing On  Brew Day

Photo and haiku by Captain Hops.

References: I was planning on brewing today, but this is where I brew. The snow is supposed to keep falling until 10:00 PM.

Snow in Maryland

Others purchase milk
But I load up on brewskies
For the coming storm

Written by Captain Hops.

References: In Maryland when they call for snow, the populace freaks out and stocks up on milk and toilet paper. Grocery stores are an absolute mob scene. It’s important to have your priorities straight.

Stormy

Through the bar window
Lightning cuts a wicked jig
Thunder keeps the beat

Solace

Faced with the deluge
I seek solace in porter
And weather the storm
