That's what Ransick and every other beer-loving poet in town will be doing at tonight's Liquid Poetry celebration at the Wynkoop, 1634 18th Street, which will not only showcase the brew, but will also serve as a forum for beer-specific poetry-contest winners and others. "It's not going to be typical poetry reading. It's going to be a poetry party," Ransick says. Poetry Month will reach out to the common man.
Casks will be decanted, music and poetry will be made and general fun will be had beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but the beer isn't: For $5 (which partially benefits Re-cording for the Blind & Dyslexic), you can get your draft in a commemorative glass emblazoned with artwork by Bill McConnell and a bit of doggerel by Ransick, tonight and throughout April. Go to www.denvergov.org/poetry or call 303-297-2700.
