BEER HAIKU #78 Hashigo Zake Staffie Series – Beetnik IPA

This week’s new release at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar isn’t strictly speaking all that new. Dave the Beer Guy invented his signature fusion of borscht and IPA at least a couple of years ago. Now, in collaboration with Baylands Brewery, this unique tribute to the Cane Toads, has been reincarnated to inaugurate a programme of beers brewed by Hashigo Zake staff past and present.

Staffie Series – Beetnik IPA (6.3% ABV)

Pink froth, soda pop
Vegetarian beatnik
Leaves turn, drop from Wood

Food match: Pickled egg and chipotle salt; liver and onions; haggis chips
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: You have a urine test the next day (and need a masking agent)


hai·ku (hk)

n. pl. haiku also hai·kus

1. A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.

2. A poem written in this form.
