The Growler Stop: A New Twist on Some Cincinnati Favorites

"Billy Beer" fills up a 32-oz. growler at The Growler Stop in Newtown.

The idea of beer & sausages is not new to Cincinnati, but what is new and cool is The Growler Stop, located next to Wags Park on Church Street in the heart of Newtown.

Though just a few weeks old, The Growler Stop has made connections with many of the great local beer makers in town, including Rhinegeist, Blank Slate, MadTree, 50 West, Rivertownand Mt. Carmel Brewery.

The Kickaways: ShowYrTeeth

ShowYrTeeth is the second studio release from The Kickaways

I love that the album cover for ShowYrTeeth shows a person immersed in a bathtub of glittering sludge inside a dilapidated room that looks like an abandoned industrial warehouse somewhere.  It is this combination of glitzy and gritty that exemplifies the sound and style of The Kickaways. ShowYrTeeth is a tantalizing mixture of glam with a touch of 'the ultra-violence.'
