First Frost

Frost is on the grass
Breath making clouds in the air
Need winter warmer

Heading to Portland

A sacred journey
To breath the Oregon air
And drink the fine beer

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I am heading to Portland, Oregon next week and I am looking forward to getting my hands on some of that great beer. It’s been a few years, so if anyone has any recommendations for must-drink beers or must-see beer bars, leave them in the comments.

Also, if you’ve been sitting on any beer haiku, now is the time to submit them. I like to schedule them to publish so I can enjoy my vacation without a laptop.

Beer Run… I mean… Deer Run

Running out to get
A growler of Rondy Brew
Deer breath on my neck

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Well here’s something you don’t see every day. It seems the folks up in Anchorage Alaska get so tired of being cooped up all winter that they get a little crazy towards the end. The Fur Rondy runs from February 27 – March 8 this year. There are lots of fun events including the Running of the Reindeer through the streets of Anchorage. The fine folks at Midnight Sun Brewing made a special American Pale Ale to commemorate the event this year.

There’s still time to make reservations!

Northwoods Aphrodisiac

Her breath quickening,
she succumbs to the rapture
of his beer cheese soup.
