Old Faithful

Like a loyal friend
Always ready with a beer
My Kegerator

Written by Captain Hops.

References: The kind folks at Kegerators.net are giving a kegerator to the person that can best articulate why they deserve one. I think that person is me, but you should probably try for it too. I mean if I can’t have it, then at least one of my friends should get it. Entries are accepted from June 1, 2007 until August 1, 2007. The winner will be decided soon after that.

Martini in hand

All Hail the Beer Wives

All hail the beer wives
they humor us and love us
although we are geeks

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I saw the toast that Brewvana posted about his “wonderful beer wife”, it was quickly seconded by Jonathan over at Monday Night Brewery (although he was cheering his partners beer wives.) I too am always amazed by what my wife puts up with (and even contributes to). I think that simply owning up to the fact that her husband writes beer haiku shows how much she loves me. Cheers to my beer wife!

By the way, if you take issue with the term “geek” in the last line, please know that I tried to replace it with “big strong manly men”, but it was too many syllables.
