BEER HAIKU #46 Left Coast Zombified Oatmeal Stout

In the first week of July at the Hashigo zake cult beer bar…the Jesuit practices his ministry and sends the haiku to be published for the faithful (and/or the thirsty).

Left Coast Brewing is based in San Clemente, California, home of Nixon’s Western White House. As a Quaker, it seems unlikely that the late, disgraced President was a craft beer aficionado but the man had to do something when he wasn’t wiretapping his political enemies.

Left Coast Zombified Oatmeal Stout (6.4%ABV)

Black oily yak, from
Nixon’s playground – served cold on
Canada Day, eh.

Food match: poutine, sardines, a roast saturated with gravy.

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: waiting for your Cooper’s home brew kit to finish fermenting (courtesy of The Draughtsman).
