Breweries, artists collide for unique Prints & Pints event

On Saturday, August 7, 15 artists collide with 15 breweries in a unique screen printing exhibition at the Daily Growler. (614) spoke with a handful of the local artists who were tasked with creating posters featuring some of Central Ohio’s top brewing brands.

Timothy Brennan | BrewDog

Can you tell us about the idea behind what you created for your brewery?

Going into this project, I think both myself and the folks at BrewDog were really interested in showcasing the Canal Winchester brewery and taproom. … We wanted to include the overall footprint of the property, the murals by Craig Fisher, the DogHouse Hotel, bicycles for the weekly bike night hosted here and as many of the smaller elements as we could while still keeping it bold and graphic with a retro vibe.

What beer from your brewery did you keep close by during your creation process?

I recently had the opportunity to design the label for one of BrewDog’s pilot beers—Grapefruit Pay Citrus Saison. So those were always within reach to pull me out of any creative rut.

If you could work with another brewer in this event, who would it be?

So many great breweries in the mix this year, but one in particular I’d love to work with is Yellow Springs Brewery. Their Boat Show IPA is such a good beer and I just love visiting the brewery by the bike path in Yellow Springs, perfect spot to spend a summer afternoon and stroll through town afterwards.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Sam Brieck | Yellow Springs Brewery

Can you tell us about the idea behind what you created for your brewery?

The name of the beer, Captain Stardust Saison, and just Yellow Springs in general bring all kinds of colorful images to mind. I wanted to make something that captures the whimsy of the beer but also is inspired by the town itself which has an absurd amount of character to it. While we bounced around di erent ideas/directions, the brewery team really gave me free reign to go nuts.

What beer from your brewery did you keep close by during your creation process?

Is this a test? Captain Stardust. It’s actually my absolute favorite beer they have. I was just lucky that they wanted to feature it. It’s incredibly tasty, refreshing, and has a nice subtle spice to it.

Finish this sentence: You should totally go home with one of my prints because…

All your dreams will come true. Especially the weird ones.

Benjamin Howes | Wolf’s Ridge Brewery

If you had to name this collection, what would you name it?

If I had to name this poster it would be “Back With The Pack.”

What beer from your brewery did you keep close by during your creation process?

Pack IPA, hands down. Although a rogue bottle of Clear Sky Daybreak may have slipped into the mix.

Finish this sentence: You should totally go home with one of my prints because…

It glows in the dark! And it’s an homage to the natural history of our great city. Remembering and respecting our relationship with our land, our rivers, our forests, and our air will continue to make Columbus an incredible city for eons to come.

Dustin Goebel | Homestead Brewing

Can you tell us about the idea/concept behind what you created for your brewery?

I picked Homestead Brewing for two reasons. One, their beers are amazing and two, they always come up with unique names for their beers. Names that beg to be accompanied with art. … This piece for me is about taking chances. This is one of the first times I’ve done color separation for screen prints so, in a way, being a part of this event at all is taking a chance. Another chance taken was using a holographic swirl paper. The paper reminded me so much of oil in water that I knew it’d be a missed opportunity if I went any other direction.

If you could collab with another artist in this event, who would it be?

I’m a big fan of Lucie Shearer’s work. The poster she did with North High for last year’s event was amazing and the mural stuff she’s been posting online lately has been top notch.

Donnie Mossman | North High Brewing Company

Can you tell us about the idea/concept behind what you created for your brewery? Is it something you worked aside the brewery, or were you free to create on your own?

When I think of the brewery I always think of this view from High St and the ‘beer’ sign in the window, I wanted to capture the chill neighborhood bar atmosphere they have.

If you had to name this collection, what would you name it?

Minimal Posting.

If you could collab with another artist in this event, who would it be?

I’m really into screen printed concert posters so I’ve been a big fan of Clinton Reno and Logan Schmitt for years. I’d love to learn more about this art form from working with either of them. More recently I discovered Benjamin Howes on Instagram and his simple/minimal style is right up my alley so I think we would work well together.

Sam Fout | Ill Mannered Brewing

What beer from your brewery did you keep close by during your creation process?

It was all about the Juice Box, but Ill Mannered has some incredible beer. Hopefully I will get the chance to work with them again when they begin bottling and distributing soon.

Finish this sentence: You should totally go home with one of my prints because…

There’s not enough beer, devils and/or skeletons in your den. Or maybe there is. In which case you should de nitely buy one.

If you could work with another brewer in this event, who would it be?

I love Land-Grant, Seventh Son, North High, BrewDog, Combustion, all of the breweries in this event are great. I would be happy to work with any of them.

The Daily Growler in German Village is located on 702 S High St. Tickets are available for $30 which grants you one print to take home, a beer from one of the participating breweries, and access to the art an hour earlier than start time.

Tyler, The Creator @ Express Live

A Day In Delaware: Horse racing, kayaking, food trucks, cocktails

Mitch Hooper

It's horse racing season in Delaware at the Little Brown Jug and that means two things: you're either about to lose, or currently losing.

The beloved horse racing at Little Brown Jug, affectionately known as LBJ, kicked off on Sunday and will run until Thursday. If you're looking to get in on the action, here is where you can buy tickets.

But, if you've already spent all your gambling money and just need a break from the horses, there are plenty of alternatives available in Delaware. Here are three spots to keep in mind as you explore our not-so-distant neighbor to the north.

Kayaking at Alum Creek

Whether you hit it big on your bet, or lost it all in the first race, Alum Creek is perfect because it's free. While the views on the walking trails are great, the views from a kayak are even better. The water there is very calm with the exception of a boat passing through every once in a while making it a nice spot for beginners.

And if you're a veteran on the water, the lake is relatively large meaning you can make an entire day out of it. I recommend packing a cooler with some picnic food—peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, string cheese with crackers, and some fresh fruit—and making pit stops at some of the beaches right off the lake. And, just so I can say I told you so, leave your phone in the car, or in a water proof bag.

Dinner At The Food Truck Depot

The Food Truck Depot is a relatively new eatery and bar in Delaware and it's sure to have something for everyone. If you, or someone you're with, is a vegetarian/vegan, Encompass Eatery is a familiar face at the Food Truck Depot and they offer plant-based dishes such as a grilled caprese sandwich, or straight up carnivorous sandwiches like the hearty roast beef sandwich. Other food trucks that have made appearances include Tortilla, Red Door BBQ, and Deja Food. Also at the Food Truck Depot is a full service bar with craft selections and cocktails as well as a large sand volleyball court if you need to burn some calories.

Drinks On Sandusky St.

Delaware is absolutely loaded with options when it comes to drinking in the evening. Looking to taste some bourbon and whiskey? Check out Opa Grill And Tavern which boasts the largest bourbon selection in Ohio. Or perhaps you're more of a beer person (you are from Columbus after all). Barley Hopsters is a beer lovers heaven as it offers large coolers stocked with local, regional, and national craft beers. Build a six-pack to take home, or sip on your beer of choice while you ponder your next option.

Not too far from Barley Hopsters is Restoration Brew Worx which offers a variety of their in-house brews. And if you're looking for an elevated cocktail, 1808 American Bistro is on 29 E. Winter St—just a stone's throw away from Sandusky St. On the flip side, if you're just looking for a dive bar to call home for the evening, The Backstretch will have you covered with cans of PBRs and Tullamore Dew.
