THE LAST BEER HAIKU #100 Garage Project – Hop Trial 2

As a better poet than us – Rudyard Kipling – once wrote, ‘last, loneliest, loveliest’. Of course, Kipling was writing about turn of the twentieth century Auckland, then farthest bastion of Empire. We only ever write about beer though but this may be the loneliest, certainly not the loveliest, but definitely the last in our haiku series. We will provide a follow up on the reasons for abandoning this beloved feature. In the meantime, it is almost poetic that our last haiku beer albeit not our last Tuesday night new release at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar is a brand new experimental effort from perennial haiku muses, Garage Project.

Garage Project HopTrial #2 Imperial IPA (8.5%ABV)

Lips oozing whispers

Licks every precious grass

Consumed her body*

* this haiku was generated entirely using Malice’s Haikubes. No synapses were injured in the process.

Food match: pickled eggs, mushy peas with malt vinegar & tommy sauce

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: you’ve done the same thing a hundred times!

    A pity to see the haikus end, boys and ladies auxiliary. Thanks for helping to elevate the level of discourse around beer.

    Maybe we should get a selection printed, framed and put on the wall in the red room. Got any particular faves?

  2. I’m more than a little bit sad with this news. Like your favourite tv series you know the end is coming but with the final roll call of credits your heart breaks a little. The spin offs are never quite as good and the monthly(if we ever get our acts together) reunion specials are a little forced.

    Well done the General & Irish usp for a brilliant concept. I will raise a glass to you if I can ever figure out how to get the child lock off the booze cabinet.
