This year’s Eat Drink Read Write event at the Birmingham Public Library will close with a Bards & Brews event. On Friday, October 7, 2016 at 6:30pm, the library will be hosting an event where poets can compete in a poetry slam and those attending can sample beer from local breweries.

Breweries include Cahaba Brewing, SweetWater Brewing Company and Band of Brothers brewing. Along with the beer, Jim ‘N Nicks, Babalu Tapas and Tacos and the Ranch House will be serving light hors d’oeuvres.

This year, the Eat Drink Read Write festival is focused on seeking out culinary adventures. Trying new foods and new restaurants are opportunities to find new favorites, and the festival aims to provide entertainment and enrichment of the community through a new culinary adventure.


This event is open to the public. Admission is free.
