From the ancient "Hymn to Ninkasi" (the Sumerian goddess of beer) to eighth-century Chinese poet Li Bai's "Bring in the Ale" to Robert Graves's "Strong Beer," the poems collected here attest to humankind's long attraction to the foamy and intoxicating product of malted grains. A surprising variety of poets have penned tributes to the brew; their tantalizing poems include Robert Burns's "John Barleycorn," Edgar Allen Poe's "Lines on Ale," Frank O'Hara's "Beer for Breakfast," Sylvia Plath's "The Beer Tastes Good," Muriel Rukeyser's "Beer and Bacon," and Tom Waits's "Warm Beer and Cold Women." Whether pulling up to the celestial bar in Keats's "Mermaid Tavern" or to the grittier, jazzier one in Carl Sandburg's "Honky Tonk in Cleveland, Ohio" (where "the cartoonists weep in their beer"), lovers of beer and poetry are sure to find something to celebrate in these tantalizing pages.
