Poetry & Beer, the longest running poetry series in Albuquerque, consists of an open mike, qualifying slam, and poetry feature.
Started at Downtown's legendary Dingo Bar in 1993, the reading brought poetry slamming to Albuquerque in 1994 and has helped make Albuquerque a player on the national poetry slam scene. Poetry & Beer moved into its new home, Club Rhythm & Blues, in May, 2001, to a sold-out room.
Since its inception, Poetry & Beer has consistently drawn an audience in excess of 100 people monthly. The reading has attracted standing room only crowds to witness the sport of competitive poetry and spoken word. Poetry & Beer is still one of the strongest spoken word events in New Mexico, attracting wild audiences and some of the best up-and-coming poets in the nation. It is also the home of some of the best wordsmiths in central and northern New Mexico.
