Imperial Lullaby

sleep well, my lover
over ice cream she drizzles
the last of his stout

The Session: Beer and Music

Yeah, I’m a Parrot Head

that first sip of beer
takes me to the same place as
Jimmy Buffett’s songs

Dance a Little Jig

with whiskey and stout
and some fast Irish music
to chase it all down

Ah… Youth

out after midnight
my brother on the guitar
sipping stolen beers

Written by Captain Hops.

the Session: Beer and Music

References: It’s time for The Session. This month it’s hosted by Tomme Arthur of The Lost Abbey. The theme is Beer and Music. The instructions are to share how you experience beer and music together.

As you can probably see from my haiku today, it was my brother that got all the musical talent in the family.

Here are some past haiku that touch on the beer and music theme:

The First Friday Session: Stout

Young's Oatmeal Stout

Young’s Oatmeal Stout

a head tall and firm
like whole wheat pancake batter
atop darkest stout

Oak Aged Yeti Stout

Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout

the old Yeti howls
as he breaks from his oak cage
and threatens to bite

Written by Captain Hops.

the Session Stouts

References: This is the debut of the First Friday Beer Blogging Sessions. On the first Friday of each month, there will be an internet-wide beer tasting and beer blogging day. The theme of this first session is Stout. The rules are simply that you must write something about a stout other than the big Irish three – Guinness, Murphy’s or Beamish. Anyone with a blog can participate. The host and the theme will change every month. The two stouts featured in today’s haiku are made by Young’s – the Ram Brewery and the Great Divide Brewing Company. Cheers!
