FIRST LOOK: Ohio Pint Day 2021 Glass Art


COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Craft Brewers Association will hold the second annual Ohio Pint Day on Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021. More than 125 breweries across the state will offer this year's limited edition, collectible pint glass in their taprooms to celebrate the occasion and raise funds for their industry trade association.

The pandemic-caused cancellation of four beer festival events in 2020 and 2021, forced the association to seek alternative ways to raise funds in support of their mission. The inaugural Ohio Pint Day campaign held last October proved to be a great success for both the association and its member breweries. Demand for the collectible Ohio Pint Day glass was so high that nearly all 112 participating breweries sold out on the day of the event, a total of nearly 11,000 glasses.

For this year's campaign, the Ohio Craft Brewers Association commissioned Columbus artist Jessica Greving to design the Ohio Pint Day glass after seeing the animal-focused can designs she had produced for Homestead Beer Company.

“This group of beer drinking, fun-loving animals is all about that feeling you get when you’re people-watching and suddenly see something cool or funny.” Greving explains in her artist’s statement. “Finding something new each time you look at an image is a feeling I strive for! I hope this glass will be a part of many new memories made with family and friends now that we’re finally starting to get back to normalcy in 2021.” 

The Ohio Craft Brewers Association will offer a bonus stamp on the Ohio On Tap brewery passport app for people who purchase an Ohio Pint Day glass. Users will be able to submit selfies with their glass from Sept. 28 through Oct. 31 to receive the stamp.

Tuesday, Sept. 28 was chosen as the date for the 2021 Ohio Pint Day as it coincides with National Drink Beer Day, marking the final week of traditional Oktoberfest celebrations and serving as a reminder to support local, independently-owned breweries.

On Ohio Pint Day, craft beer fans can expect to find many different offers from participating breweries. Some breweries may sell the glass filled with the customer’s choice of beer, others may include the glass with a crowler or growler purchase to go, still others may sell the glass individually.

“Ohio Pint Day was so popular with craft beer fans that our breweries couldn't wait to do it again,” said Ohio Craft Brewers Association executive director Mary MacDonald. “It has been a blast seeing the 2020 glass pop up on so many social media feeds over the last year. We can't wait for people to have the opportunity to show off this year's glass as well.”
