Such a family smell
Cinnamon, cloves, and oatmeal,
Christmas beer brewing.

This is technically the Schutte's post, him being the mad beermaker and all. Mate, that means your haiku goes on the front page. Hmm... tell Na to write one too.

Yoroshiku.

five of these beauties
and you'll call God's name on the
great white telephone

Who truly believes
in vino veritas exclaimed
the rotund friar

Only he who has
never witnessed this lovely
caramel color

Candle shines through sharp
Acme of the brewer’s art
Will it make me fart?


Take this, who is willing
You’ll find it quite fulfilling
Then see the Kings shilling

nobody said...

Well of course the Belgian Boys had to pile in. (and crack me up!). Where would beer be without the Belgians?

And the King's shilling! Nice one.

nobody said...

Waitaminute! It's a glass tankard! Technically the shilling gag only worked for a non-glass tankard.

Not that we're that pedantic of course...

No getting one past you on the blind side Mr N, you are quite right about glass and metal tankards. In the day, before my day (just), pewter tankards with glass bottoms were quite the thing, for the purpose of seeing the scam before it was too late.

Well Spotted!

Btw I meant to ask if the previous picture was Rievauix Abbey, North Yorkshire. It sure looks like it but I seem to remember that the windows in the naïve were three high so I am not quite sure. I was away on a short break whilst this one was up and still trying to figure what to write about the jewellery one before that. So many thoughts that would not come on paper.

I actually got a pewter tankard with a glass bottom from an uncle for my 21st. I'd always wondered what the significance of it was and only learnt of it a little while ago.

The last pic was of Tintern Abbey in Wales. Quite spectacular.

Its art I tell ya!
Barley, hops, yeast, and water.
Such simple magic

Oh this is ancient,
this pleasure filled alchemy,

Just another note, as this picture got us going here in Schuttebierland.
Natsuko noticed that while most were talking about drinking and enjoying, all of our efforts centered on actually brewing the stuff. Well whadya expect? We brew.
We also worked on ours independently and both waxed excited about that holiday brew we made last weekend. I saw it as a Christmas ale, she as a New Years beer. Obvious Cultural difference there, of course, but we both got our required reference to season in.
Thanks for putting that picture up, its fun. You should taste the newly ready wild gingered ale, its a stunner.

the jug is for me

Three cheers for the beer
I can't seem to remember
the world less amber.

Yay It's everyone's favourite Na! Thanks Na, very good. As for everyone else focusing on the drinking: Look at the guy! He's about to drink it! And quite right too. Otherwise thanks R, most excellent. Can you attach a beer to an email?

And is that Other John? How are you mate? I don't know about anyone else but those two cracked me up.




Hmm... this pic is the best one for ages.

Well Pen, don't give up your day job for the professional beer drinking circuit (smiley winky!)
