Haiku Poem – ビール

many tastes
cans and brown bottles
temporary escape

(Scott version)
かん と びん げんじつ わすれ ビール のむ

(Michiko version)
ビールずき ふうみ ことなり よいきぶん

There are many beers to choose from these days. Each type has its own taste and purpose. There are four types of beer I gravitate towards. Beers from Japan, from the US West Coast, barrel aged and dark beers. Japanese beers tend to be lighter and are good for drinking on hot days or with meals. Westcoast beers are usually full of flavor and change often. Darker beers tend to be a bit stronger and filling. So with those you don’t need much food. Barrel aged beers however are a little different. They are finished in wine or alcohol barrels, tend to be a bit stronger, and come in many varieties. While I like all of these styles, recently the barrel aged beers are my favorite.
