Hashigo zake Cult Beer bar – New release Tuesday, 23 October 2012
This beer was a collaboration between Nøgne Ø of Norway and Spike Buckowski, one of the founders of the Terrapin Brewery in Athens, Georgia USA. This was a smoky, bitter chocolate tasting beer that caused many a furrowed brow. We considered it a night-cap beer, the type of beer you’d have instead of a cognac.
The food matches included a cigar, a Davenport truffle log or bonfire night black corn. It took the gathered beer haiku-ers a record 25 minutes to agree on the composition of this haiku. Are we getting too serious here? Is the Jesuit’s domination of poetry club under threat!?
