As you may have heard, Deschutes Brewery now has beers available in Ohio (see my Distilled column for a review), and they’ve been celebrating this with a bunch of events around the city.

The Pint House is partnering with the Oregon brewery for a special version of its regular Gallery Hop event, Paint the Pint House.

Every Hop, a local artist paints a mural at the Pint House, and this time another one will complete a Deschutes-inspired mural. In addition to the mural, Deschutes will hold a contest for 10 Columbus artists to create their next brewery T-shirt design. Winner receives a design featured on Deschutes’ website, the first T-shirt printed and gift cards.

Also, beers will be consumed, making this a totally appropriate way to spend Gallery Hop.
