For the fourth year runnings, Columbus screen printer Upright Press is pairing local artists with local breweries to produce some amazing art.
Featuring 30 posters for sale for $20 each, Prints & Pints is slated for noon to 7 p.m. Aug. 14 at The Daily Growler, 702 S. High St.

Upright Press Owner Jess Hinshaw said this year, 12 artists were paired with 12 breweries: Seventh Son, Homestead, Two Tones, Wolf’s Ridge Parsons North, Three Tigers, BrewDog, Columbus Brewing Co., Land Grant, North High Brewing, and Ill Mannered Brewing. Artists get 100% of the profits.
“I just like the community aspect of it, really,” Hinshaw said. “It connects artists with breweries.”
All of the artists participating are based in Ohio, and most come from the Columbus area, Hinshaw said. The goal is that breweries here will accrue posters of a variety of their brews over time, like a band would have a collection of gig posters.
And the community has found the premise attractive. While the event was held online last year, in 2019, patrons lined up outside the Daily Growler prior to its opening, and two or three posters sold out in about 20 minutes, Hinshaw said. He credits the breweries with the event’s popularity.
“I’ve always been so floored at how well-received it is, and how much people love it,” he said.
