Walt Whitman: Bottled and Brewed

May 13, 2019

Walt Whitman once wrote, “I am large, I contain multitudes.” The poet’s wide reach will soon be showcased by Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, Mich., which is releasing a series of seven beers in tribute to Whitman’s famous poetry collection Leaves of Grass. Each brew is named after an iconic line from the work, and the first one, “Song of Myself,” is a “a German-inspired American IPA.” The first beer will be released in July, so until then, you can brush up on Leaves of Grass, “a marvel of enigmatic charm.”
