A 3900 year old Samarian poem honoring
the patron goddess of brewing, Ninkasi.

"Ninkasi, you are the one who bakes the bappir in the
big oven,Puts in order the piles of hulled grains,

You are the one who waters the malt
set on the ground...
You are the one who holds with both hands t
he great sweet wort...

Ninkasi, you are the one who pours out
the filtered beer of the collector vat,

It is [like] the onrush of Tigris and Euphrates"


James Zacherley

There is something about a beer
A tingle exceedingly pleasant
Make it a mellow, a hoppy brew
I think that I'll have one at present

There is something about a beer
That bings singing  and dancing a lot
And to tell you the truth,
It is not the malt
I think that, perhaps, it's the hop


William Butler Yeats

Beer comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.


Paullette Parington

When you’re feeling sad & blue
And have no clue what to do
Sit down and have a cup of tea pint of beer
And a hug or two or maybe three
Feel those troubles melt away
And start you on a better day.


Jason Drummer

When I use my kegerator
To get a drink
It doesn't work
The way you'd think

With the CO2 up high
The beer goes
And hits me right
Upon the nose.

I turn it down
To make it small
And don't get any
Drink at all.
