As I sit at the counter watching the rain, the memory of this poem brought thoughts of a warm inviting pub and good friends enjoying a good ale.
-excerpt from the poem “A ballad on ale” by John Gay
Give me a bumper, fill it up.
See how it sparkles in the cup!
O how shall I regale!
Can any taste this drink divine,
And then compare Rum, Brandy, Wine,
Or aught with nappy ale?
