As we mentioned in the previous post, since late 2011, we have been going to the Tuesday night new releases at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar in Wellington, but we have never blogged about the beers. We tend to only write up our monthly curated beer tastings.
This is the second Beer Haiku (an occasional series) that addresses this gap in our beer tasting coverage. For tonights new release we were joined by a new friend on a Distinguished Beer Drinking Fellowship from the USA. He was happy to discover the cache of craft beers in the subterranean halls of Hashigozake and to contribute the first line of this weeks haiku :
De Molen Bed & Breakfast Coffee Pale Ale 4.4% ABV
Good news, real beer here
Subtle bitter coffee tones
Better served warmer
n. pl. haiku also hai·kus
