As well as being a day early, todays Beer Haiku has a distinctly New Zealand flavour. It is called "Perfect":
Butcher and brewerIt is by Rupert Morrish who notes "my local butcher makes these excellent Bitter & Twisted sausages for Galbraiths." The editor also adds a note saying "Mmmmm… ESB Sausages… Drool…" However, this is not the first time the dashing Keith Galbraith has had a poem written about him. *

Over at the Malthouse blog, the latest post takes a look at the Beer Awards, Richard Emerson, beer, life and shoes in "It's official, Richard Emerson is a Champion":
Perhaps suspecting that he was going to do very well at the ceremony, Richard was sharply dressed. That has not always been the case. Emerson’s brewery manager Chris O’Leary recalls Richard arriving at a previous Brew NZ wearing two different shoes. Apparently, Richard had gotten up at 5am in the dark, slipped on his shoes and travelled all the way to Wellington. Chris says “being the observant, caring guy I am I let him wear that combination for a day then advised him that he was wearing one brown shoe and one green shoe. Ever positive, Richard replied ‘Bugger – oh well, at least I’m wearing one shoe from each of my favourite pairs!’”Glass Tip - Beer Haiku Daily and the Malthouse Blog
* I can not provide any actual evidence of this but I'm sure its true.
Everything one could hope for, good food, good company and a breakfast beer!
The Weissbier Breakfast laid on by Emerson's Brewery for their trade clients in Dunedin was very enjoyable. Well I enjoyed it.
The menu was a delightful cheese and parsley omelette accompanied by Weissbier sausages, speck, onion marmalade, asparagus and hollandaise sauce.
My new, and very able assistant, Shell-Boy, performed brilliantly.
We are now available as a double act for all of your breakfast requirements!
