tasty tropics brew

Mother’s Brewing Company is a craft brewer in Springfield, Missouri.  On its Facebook page, Mother’s offered a free 4-pack to the writer of the best haiku about its new Coconut Stout.

Competition was pretty stiff, so I did not win the 4-pack of Coconut Stout.  Obviously, the direct approach was what was desired:

I need a good beer
A coconut stout will do
Hope I win this shit

(As a side note, the Backyard Series of special releases is a nod to the Backyard, an outdoor seating/recreation/festival area at Mother’s tasting room.)
