Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - February - The Month Of Love

The month of love is here and to celebrate the hunting season of the chubby cherub, we’ve penned a poem just for you. It’s about the thing we love most so excuse us while we dial the cheese up to eleven for second before returning to our regular programming.

An Ode to the Mixed Case...

It’s finally here... that time of the month again,
The doorbell rings and I feel a familiar excited pang,
With sweaty hands I open the door,
And there on the floor, a mixed case from my favourite online store,
I grab the box and race inside,
I can’t wait to see what waits inside,
A lager, a kolsch, a couple of blondes,
A NEIPA, a smoked porter, of all of them I’m fond,
It’s a selection of beers picked just for me,
An epic lineup and for such a meager monthly fee,
I head outside to light a fire, my beers on ice to get them nice,
Soon I’ll be sipping on a brew or two, taking pics and uploading a few,
I’ll chat to some colleagues on the @TastingLeague,
And raise a toast to the beverage I love most,
So here’s to you my one and only brew,
Crappy Valentine’s gifts of handkerchiefs and socks have nothing on you.
