Poetry is for the people. Regardless of your preconceptions about the craft, there is a universal bent to all poetry: It seeks to illuminate the various ineffable aspects of life, large and small, that we all experience. Beer, like poetry, is a universal good, meant to lead weary workers and wistful wanderers alike to a full and fuzzy feeling of felicity. Therefore, any event that can combine the power of poetry with the beauty of beer, promises to excite the mind and lift the spirit. Bards and Brew, a new recurring series brought to you by San Antonio Poet Laureate Laurie Ann Guerrero and the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, is just such an event. At the inaugural incarnation of Bards and Brew, which seeks to feature diverse poets from all sides of town, you can sip beers from Black Laboratory Brewing while kicking back at the Guadalupe Parque and gazing into the middle distance. The list of mad talented local poets participating in the event includes Octavio Quintanilla, Natalia Treviño, Vincent Cooper, Amanda Flores and Darrell Pittman.
