Default Classic, beautiful bottles of ale {on the wall}


I am bottling the last 15 gallons of
'Mein Hammerbier' for the season.
I use 12 oz Bavarian bottles
{which used to be 8.99 a 12 pack.}
And 22 oz 'dark' bottles.
Now today I had an inspiration,
it wasn't even my idea,
I looked up at the hoard of bottles,
realizing this was it for the year
and how as the bottled ale in my 'former pantry brewery'
was an impressive sight already.

I got out all the Guininess bottles and the Grolsch swing tops,
sanitized them, and as I type,
I am 'getting in the mood' to go fill them...
with 'the Hammerbier of the gods'
and place the bottles on the shelves in my brewery
not to be drunk till they are fully carbonated
and all the others are drunk first!

The strange bottles lend a classical appeal
to seeing all that fine ale in my brewery
all in the same place and at the same time.
