Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

I'm just now relaxing after the Marathon du Beer Blog of this weekend. It's the kind of effort that only a former host of the Session can truly appreciate. Hosting the Session is really a lot of fun, but it's also a quite a bit of work—all worth it, however.

Now, though, we're onto more pressing matters—matters of beer-related Japanese inspired poetry.

That's right, it's the "announce the #IPADay Haiku contest winner" time! I do wish blogging had commercial interruptions, so I could say "Right after a word from our sponsor..." ya' know just for a little drama. But since it doesn't, I might as well just get on with it. Three great entries this go-round, by the way.

From Curtis at HopHeadSaid entered this beaut:

Empty Tulip glass
I P A is in the can
Combined brings me joy

Photog, Dietrich Gehring, sent this along:

August heat
Hop yard growing
IPA soon come

Last but not least, an anonymous poster questioned #IPADay haikus, thusly:

IPA Haiku?
On a steamy afternoon?
Prefer a Resin...

All three are strong contenders, but I think the edge... goes... to...

Curtis at HopHeadSaid! 

Congrats Curtis, I'll get a hold of you to find out where to send your swag!

Ah yes, another successful #InternationalInsertyourchoiceofbeerstyleDay haiku contest. I will sleep soundly tonight, for sure.
