Portland beer haiku contest

If you're a fan of haiku, is having a beerku contest.

"The rules are pretty simple. It must be in haiku format. The ancient art
of haiku requires precision: a five syllable first line; seven syllable
second line; and five syllable third line. The best haiku features a final
line that works like a friendly elbow in the ribs. We only ask that the
haiku be at least loosely about beer."

My favorite is:

Imbibe and unite –
drunk poets, crafty brewers –
Our paths part at dawn

I'm still working on my entry.... you can't just dash these things off.
