It’s Always Grilling Weather

Six inches of snow
Keeps my beer nice and cold while
I grill the rib eyes

Cold

A chill in the air
Must wear something on my hands
Beer bottle so cold

Ready for Spring

With little regret
I say goodbye to the stout
As the last snow melts

Winter Luau

With Fire Rock Pale
And Crock Pot Kalua Pig
I escape the cold

Written by Captain Hops.

References: When it’s cold and icy here on the east coast, I dream about being back on the Big Island. I spent a summer there during my college years earning my keep by doing landscaping, working in a hotel rec department, and busing tables at luaus. It was a time of hard work, mischief, and adventure.

Sometimes, when I’m stuck here in the ice and snow, I try to get back there in my head. All it takes is a six pack of Fire Rock Pale Ale from Kona Brewing and some slow cooked Kalua Pig. Alright, I haven’t dug an imu in my yard and I really wouldn’t be able to finish eating a whole pig by myself. But this crock pot recipe seems to do the trick. Aloha!

Winter Warmer time
Like to brew our own at home
Facing the winter

The Summer Beer Blues

Maine’s freeze is over
I have a new source of SAD
Good-bye winter brews
