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.

It was a bummer to hear that Red, White & BOOM would be canceled and changed to a virtual format for 2020. However, that shouldn’t stop you from celebrating in a somewhat traditional sense. Even with one of the biggest fireworks celebrations put on hold, there’s still plenty to do around Columbus, fireworks or no fireworks.

We here at (614) know that given the modern-day circumstances, people have the choice to celebrate in whatever way they feel most comfortable. Below you can find three ways to celebrate–Local 4th of July events; Red, White & BOOM alternatives; and places where you can legally celebrate yourself.

HOW TO CELEBRATE WITH RED, WHITE & BOOM

Red, White & BOOM was gearing up for its 40th anniversary before COVID-19 shut the mass gathering down. However, the beloved Columbus fireworks show will be hosting a virtual event over the first four days of July. The virtual campaign will air on NBC4.

Here are some of the events that will take place:

  • Highlighting the best Red, White & BOOM stories
  • Stories from local veterans inducted into the Ford Oval of Honor
  • Broadcasting the best Red, White & BOOM fireworks over the show’s 39-year history
  • Looking back on the tradition of parades honoring veterans

HOW TO TAKE CELEBRATING INTO YOUR OWN HANDS

We here at (614) also know that setting off fireworks yourself is illegal. We also know that buying them within the state is legal (OK?).

So here is a list of places around Columbus you can buy fireworks from. What you do from there is up to you, but we advise you to stay within the law:

Zoo Babies! We’ve got the photo cuteness

Start the ooo-ing and ahhh-ing, Columbus, because we’ve got Zoo baby pics!

A Masai giraffe calf, a sea lion pup, two red panda cubs, and a siamang (gibbon) baby—all recent births at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for these endangered species. It’s a show of commitment from the organization how they were able to nurture these species populations at-risk for extinction and bring new generations of them into the world. 

“We are extremely proud to welcome these babies as they all represent hope for the future of species that are increasingly facing challenges in their native ranges,” said Columbus Zoo and Aquarium President/CEO, Tom Stalf. In the press release, Stalf detailed how special these births are as the threatened species received around-the-clock, top-quality care by the Animal Care staff over the three-month-closure of the Zoo, due to COVID-19. 

OK, no more waiting—get your fill of cuteness below with these Zoo baby pics!

Masai Giraffe Calf

“A Masai giraffe calf was born on June 28, 2020, at 2:29 p.m. to mother, Zuri, in a behind-the-scenes barn of the Zoo’s Heart of Africa region.”

Sea lion Pup

“During the early morning hours of June 25, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium welcomed the first sea lion pup ever to be born at the facility!”

Two Red Panda Cubs

“Two healthy red panda cubs were born at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, a welcomed addition to this endangered species.”

Siamang (Gibbon) baby

“On the morning of May 29, 2020, the Australia and Islands region welcomed a baby siamang. Mom, Olga, is being very attentive to her little one, whose sex and name have not yet been determined.”
