BEER HAIKU #10 and 11 South Australian beers

Hashigo zake was the venue for two new releases that brought the Thirstyboys founder, Mr Horse, down to basement beneath Taranaki Street for a now rare appearance. Two of South Australia’s favourite dark beers were on offer, prompting one of the Thirstyboys to exclaim that the notion of “good Australian beers” was surely an oxymoron! The Hashigo zake proprietor was quick to retort!

It is fair to say we enjoyed exactly 50% of the Australian beers on offer from our good Australian brothers. In fact, we liked them so much we haiku’d each one…and manpointed them.
