BEER
The Poetry of Beer
Brian Hutton
A Beer With My Name On It

Me? Iwant a beer with my name on it,
a round for my friends,
maybe two.
A slow sipping thirst-drenching
thousand year beer.
A midnight moon millenial see in the
new century brew.  

Golden, amber, pale or porter,
doesn't matter,
just bring me a beer
clear as the Northern night,
fresh as the company I keep.
And maybe just one more
before I sleep.


You want one, too?

Good At Drinking Beer

I wasn't born for diggin deep holes
I'm not made for pavin' long roads
I ain't cut out to climb high line poles
But I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer


I'm not the type to work in a bank
I'm no good at slappin' on things
Don't have a knack for makin' motors
crank, no
But I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer


A go getter maybe I'm not
I'm not known for doin' a lot
But I do my best work when the
weather's hot
I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer
So hand me one more
That's what I'm here for

G.K. Chesterton
Beer Is The Drink

Feast on beer or fast on water,
And your honor shall stand sure

If an angel out of heaven
Brings you something else to drink,

Thank him for his kind attentions,
Go and pour it down the sink.

Haiku Time

Old friends grow closer
and daily cares slip away
with every pitcher
------
Why do I feel
no shame,
Sitting to order breakfast,
Asking what’s on tap?

------
Noon on the east coast
Most certainly justifies
A beer with my meal

Ale's The One

Submit, Bunch of Grapes,
To the strong Barley ear;

The weak wine no longer
The laurel shall wear.

Sack, and all drinks else,
Desist from the strife:

Ale's the only Aqua Vitae,
And liquor of life.

Beer, Beer

Long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was

nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of
Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink

and hemade it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral,
a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled
us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who
invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

Day Drinking

Everybody's always waiting on Friday
Watching that clock and sittin' on go
Whatcha' say we find a little warm
sunshine
And open up an umbrella on the patio
Don't need a reason or a happy hour
Ain't hanging 'round for a fireworks
show
Get a head start a little sip of somethin'
Off and runnin', here we go
One, two, three here we go


Why don't we do a little day drinking?
Don't wanna wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little beer drinking?
