The Shillito’s elves’ journey from the
North Pole has been a long one. From the holiday windows of the John
Shillito & Co. department store to a home in Mariemont, they’ve
captured the imagination of Cincinnatians for decades.
Hilary Nauman and Michael Boyd are taking
DIY to the next level with Shrewdness of Apes, their new Covington,
Ky., gallery-boutique. After participating in what she calls a
“makers’ movement” of arts markets across the region, Nauman says she
and Boyd were inspired to create a more permanent home for emerging
artists and makers.
Whether you’re interested in checking
out the breweries, sampling their eclectic beers or filling up your
growler and heading for home, these local breweries promise to make the
future of Cincinnati brewing just as respected as its storied past.
