Beer Haiku Friday and What’s In A Name

Today’s Beer Haiku is optimistically entitled “Optimist“:

Half full? Half empty?
I’m very optimistic
There’s more in my stash

From the Malthouse blog, a considered look at beer names, the debut of more nicknames and a review of Smokin’ Bishop 2009:

While writing a grocery newsletter the other week (true story) I came across some crackers from America:

Moose Drool Brown Ale (from Big Sky Brewery – “we make water fun”)
Nodding Head’s Monkey Knife Fight Lager (“everybody loves a monkey”)
McQuire’s I’ll Have What The Gentleman On The Floor Is Having Barley Wine (hardly surprising at 12% alcohol)
Wasatch Polygamy Porter (“Why stop at one?”)
Buffalo Bill’s Alimony Ale (“the bitterest beer in America” – ouch.)
