BEER HAIKU #58 & #59 Lobethal Pale Al [sic] plus the Mighty Thirstycake

As one Thirsty celebrated his forty somethingth birthday, another prepared to succumb to the duties of paternity, entailing a prolonged sabbatical. Fortunately, the Lady Pie Maker saw fit to mark the occasion with a stonking Porter cake with clouds of cream and Porter syrup.

Props to the management and staff of Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar for indulging our Thirsty impulses and providing plates and forks. Awesome work all round.

The new release was an Australian pale ale, albeit in a Classic English mode.

Lobethal Pale Al [sic] (5.9% ABV)

Lacy and creamy
Drinking across the spectrum
Malt, Spring, conifer

Also, the sense of the meeting was that the cake deserved its own haiku:

The Mighty Thirstycake

Prunes of mystery
Moist, bitter, tart confection
Voodoo stout awaits

Stay Thirsty, GBM!

The Mighty Thirstycake!

The Mighty Thirstycake!
