    Red face Beer-ku

    Our production folks had a burst (or maybe a spasm) of creativity a while back and produced some beer-related haiku. For your enjoyment:

    The Reinheitsgebot:
    Barley, hops, yeast, and water.
    Sounds boring to me.

    Microbreweries
    serve pints to communities
    and unite us all.

    Lazily clinging
    foam lace decorates the glass
    and tells a beer tale.

    Cold Eddy Out flows
    freely from taps and cans to
    quench Missoula's thirst.

    Cold Smoke Scotch Ale leaves
    the glass on a journey that
    will end in a bowl.

    Wicked keg machine
    whipping hoses, spraying lye,
    burns balls and blinds eyes.

    Cans by the thousands.
    The aluminum masters.
    We can so you can.

    The railyard rumbles
    outside the canning room door
    as we fill orders.

    H.X., H.L.T.
    C.I.P. the B.B.T.
    Nice clean H.L.P.

    Anybody have some beer poetry they'd like to share? I'd really like to see a sonnet, if you're ambitious. All above crappy haikus are property of Kettlehouse Brewing Company, LLC.

    My malt has gone slack.
    Humid air the enemy.
    The mash continues.

    Someone wanted a sonnet, here you go:

    Beer Sonnet

    If I am to be honest my desire
    becomes driven by beer so clear and neat
    ever since my first homebrew lit afire
    I yearned to make more ales so sweet, replete
    with malty hoppy tasty grandeur yet
    that these aromas should inspire more
    drive to find taste, not waste but more to get
    of this lovely liquor so old so pure
    yet lest we forget, it is yet complete
    the unending mixtures of flavors now
    found in beers world round so proud of the feat
    that our search for the best beer and the how
    shall we let this task pass us by undone
    when we can never forget just one

    Its soso, but it is a sonnet, or so I hope,,, 14 lines, 10 syllables, a-b-a-b c-d-c-d e-f-e-f gg.

    !

    Cloudy blonde, it's twice
    Filtered, damn Velo. From the
    Makers of Fiat...

    Honestly, this thought is what keeps me sane when it blows the bottom off of the residual bell.
