Poetry & Pints
I brew some beer.
We read some poetry.
Poetry & Pints brings together two of my passions: Writing and Brewing. For every reading, I make a special 5 gallon batch of beer, which we all share while listening to talented writers read their work.
Poetry & Pints revolutionizes what a reading--and a beer--can be.
