News: Czech Beers

The NY Times ran a very in-depth article about beer traveling in Czech Republic last week. Beers covered include Budvar, Pilsner Urquell, and many other smaller, local breweries. Good to see good beer getting such good coverage. And Garrett Oliver, who seems to be popping up all over, is even quoted.

Thanks to Allison for forwarding the article to me.

I quaffed a hearty Chouffe IPA last eve. I know, I know, it's Belgian and I'm posting to a review of Czech beer, but Belgium is close to the Czech Republic isn't it?

The Chouffe is a triumph! So much so that I read aloud the following poem from my rooftop for all to enjoy.

The Skirt

Hallo Germaine that's a fine skirt you have
A fine skirt for a queen A cruel queen
Let's feel the silk of it Silk from Japan
And trimmed with wide lace made on no machine

Your skirt's a silken bell whose double clapper
Your legs have struck the passing of my fancies
O Germaine now I ring it my breast heaving
My hands press down upon your willing haunches

Your bedroom O my bell is a fine belfry
My hands touch silk and seem to tear my ears
Those pegs are gallows on which skirts are hanging
Those hanging men are dazzling my eyes

Motionless as an owl the oil lamp watches
