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.

A Stormy Game of Chess

Lightning and thunder
Strong ale, hard rain, and high wind
Dramatize each move

Windy Valley Brewery

The wind blew cold
In the deep valley shadows
Winter’s hoarded treasure

Sailing

wind filled sails coax us
quietly across the bay
cold beer soothes my soul
