Beer Goes With

Beer goes with hotdogs,

beer goes with stew –

beer goes with humus and pickles and tofu.

Beer goes with friendship, camaraderie too!

Beer goes with summer,

beer goes with spring –

beer goes with autumn and winter then zing!

Beer goes with New Years,

beer goes with the news –

beer goes with birthdays and funerals and blues.

Beer goes with women,

beer goes with men –

beer goes with everyone, all occasions and then…

Beer goes with good times,

beer goes with bad –

just remember, my friends:

there’s beer to be had.

So when you’re out talking –

and sipping and such,

know beer is for people and keeping in touch.

Beer brings us together,

it’s got magic powers –

to have us all sit down, and get to know one another.

Beer’s good for communities

of folks far and wide –

Let’s use beer, together,

we’re stronger side by side.

Cheers ~

Beer Poetry Winner Announced!

With a nod and a pint to the inspiration of beer, the incredible Julia and this Craftbeer.com post, WEB decided to also encourage people to wax rhapsodic about beer. Here’s the invite that we posted.

ode to beautiful beer

Today I’m very hoppy to announce that Jeanne Core is our fine winner! In fact she’s a beer poet overachiever – she sent in two great pieces for us to enjoy.

repose

ever tranquil brew / forgotten am i within / thy shimmering drop

another beer haiku…

joyful golden sip / oh beguiling infusion / delight me always

Many thanks to Jeanne for her contributions, as they delight us to be sure! Watch for Jeanne to be making a continued positive impact in our beer community in the years to come.

May all your beers be delicious and inspirational too ~
