Well, I got this email see…at 7.25pm, no header, no footer, no note, just a haiku, a food match and a random note about channelling an English writer. No instructions. I’d spent the late afternoon standing in a muddy rain sodden field at my kid’s sports practice. Twenty kilometres away, underground in the warmer climes of the Hashigo Zake cult beer bar, the Thirsties gathered talking about important things and warming their little ESBs. I read their haiku and post it now on their behalf…
Coronado Old Blighty ESB
Day after the flood
Fleeting, tangy, feijoa
Eye of the monsoon
Food match: sharp cheddar, feijoa?
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: You’re channelling Graham Greene in San Diego
