Through hands-on riding groups like How We Roll, to large-scale inclusive bike tours, like the seventh annual Bike The C-Bus event on Aug. 30, Joy and Co. are working to make the transition from vehicle to bike a smooth ride for everybody.

Things we love: Geoff Towne’s picks

It’s been a long time coming, but worth the wait. Starting Thursday, Zauber Brewing Co. expects to make more of a name for itself in the local craft beer scene. Along with increased production possibilities, the Grandview brewery is expanding its offerings to four brews: Myopic Red, Vertigo hefeweizen, Berzerker Belgian IPA and Kitschy Kolsch. Those beers will be available onsite immediately and throughout Columbus at other bars and growler shops by the end of the month. “We’re trying to be careful,” founder/brewer Geoff Towne said during an interview recently. “It’s about making sure we do this right, as opposed to making a bad name for ourselves with beer that’s not available and always changes when it’s not supposed to.” We spoke with Towne recently about a few of his other obsessions.

Street Fashion: Floral

Floral prints this time of year may not be groundbreaking, but it’s always a good look through spring and summer. And like any other trend, it’s what you make of it. Whether you go bold and colorful like Kait with her matching shorts and top, or monochrome like Katie in her dress, it’s hard to go wrong with floral prints. Guys can get in on the floral action too, with a five-panel hat, a nice pair of shorts or straight-up Gucci in a floral suit.

Things We Love: Mitch Geiser’s picks

A few weeks ago, Vice Barber introduced a new locally made, hand-crafted bay rum after-shave to its customers. The five-ounce bottles of the after-shave were so popular, plans have already been made to expand the line to possibly include a beard oil and hair tonic and to launch it eventually with Robert Mason. The idea came to Vice owner Mitch Geiser, as many things do, during some shop talk, this time with customer and friend Nick Meister, who made the after-shave with his brother-in-law Joey Francisco as a sort-of experiment. We sat down with Geiser recently to talk about some of his other favorite things, many of which you’ll already be familiar with if you’ve visited the Clintonville barbershop.
