William Aytoun

Ah, liberty! how like thou art
To this large bottle lying here,
Which yesterday from foreign mart,
Came filled with potent English beer!

A touch of steel—a hand—a gush—
A pop that sounded far and near—
A wild emotion—liquid rush—
And I had drunk that English beer!

And what remains?—An empty shell!
A lifeless form both sad and queer,
A temple where no god doth dwell—
The simple memory of beer!”


Richard Brown

Someplace in the world
a woman is sitting
under a beautiful green tree,
as humming birds fly near
and she is thinking only
of beautiful things,
like waterfalls or rainbows
or beer.


Barbara Colingswood

I wish I were a beer bottle
I would always have a nice brown tan,
to go with
my always perfectly molded shape

never would anyone mistaken
my name, nor’ the labels
I wear.


Jay Kathger

I just bought a new kegerator,
it's now my greatest love.
Ok, enough with the poetry,
Back to my buzz!!


Stella Bell

The drought it seemed would never end,
The ground was dry and hard,
The men who'd worked for weeks unending,
Stood round the empty cattle yard.
The last truck roared on down the track,
They'd got all the cattle from the scrub,
"There's nothing more to do" they said,
"Let's head for Barney's Pub."

A dusty cloud was all that marked
The way they took to town,
"Let's move along, we'll be there then
Before the sun goes down."
The road was long, the day was hot,
That was the only rub,
But the beer was cold, and friends were there,
In the bar at Barney's Pub.

Dan Sheahan

Oh it's-a lonesome away from your kindred and all
By the campfire at night we'll hear the wild dingoes call
But there's-a nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear
Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

Now the publican's anxious for the quota to come
And there's a far away look on the face of the bum
The maid's gone all cranky and the cook's acting queer
Oh what a terrible place is a pub with no beer
