Beer Haiku Winner

There were some great entries in the Sagebrush Classic Feast beer haiku contest this year. Unfortunately, the judges have to narrow them down to one winner. Thanks to everyone for their entries! I wish I had a prize for all of you.

Here are the judges top entries:

Lisa Richardson:

Sunshine for the tongue
Hops turned into brewed delights
Liquid Oregon

Clinton Springer:

how like a pharaoh
the first must have felt, sipping
grain turned to manna

Clinton Springer:

it’s our mother’s milk:
the gentle hands pull the taps,
and down rains pure ale

Carlos Perez:

Beer transforms my mind
to thoughts of cascading water
Pooling, foaming, cool.

Erin Hatzi:

Malt, hops, yeast, heaven
Bitter never tastes so sweet
Drink of the people

Gabe Finch:

Bottled amber poured
In code, this malt does whisper
Of sunbeams sweet voice

Brian:

The Dissident Shouts
“Free yourself from boring beer”
Prepare to pucker!

Brian:

Miss Spelt, Not Miss Spelled
She, a thirst quenching temptress
Please don’t tell my wife.

Hoss:

Beer me Bartender
The sweet nectar you render
Is hoppy splendor

Clinton Springer:

born at sea, tumbling
through and rising from valley
soil, into your glass

The runner up by one vote: (I wish I had a prize to offer)

Lisa Richardson:

Sunshine for the tongue
Hops turned into brewed delights
Liquid Oregon

Pour the twilight ale
Breathe in the warm wind of night
Summer has begun
