BPL held its first ever virtual Bards & Brews on April 3. BPL’s Bards & Brews Facebook page will be broadcasting the spoken word poetry virtually through the web conferencing site Zoom.
Celebrating its 10th year this fall, Bards & Brews has built a reputation as a unifying event for Birmingham's cultural arts community as well as a popular gathering for fans of spoken word poetry and craft beer.
It is normally held monthly at library locations, entertainment and craft beer venues across metro Birmingham, but has moved online due to social distancing orders in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Although Bards & Brews Virtual will be absent the free craft beer samples popular among attendees, BPL Bards committee member and poet Lee Green is hoping viewers will support local craft breweries that offer curbside service by ordering carryout to take home.
