Cincinnati, OH. November 26th, 2014 Moerlein Ohio Knife Amber Ale Beer Release / Ohio Knife EP Album Release with special guests and headliner Electric Citizen Doors at 9pm, show at 9:30pm & 10:30pm, $7 Woodward Theater, 1404 Main Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
Please join us in welcoming back the newly renovated Woodward Theater, Thanksgiving Eve, November 26th. Ohio Knife will release its very own beer in collaboration with Christian Moerlein Brewing Co., and we couldn’t be more thrilled! We are all proud to celebrate the reopening of the historic Woodward Theater with the amazing Electric Citizen — one of the hottest bands on the planet in 2014. In addition to Ohio Knife releasing its very own beer, they will be releasing a new EP – a 4 song release that coincides with 4 unique limited-edition, hand-numbered poster prints by 4 different poster titans – BLDG, Cryptogram, Powerhouse Factories and Southpaw Prints/We Have Become Vikings. Buy a poster and get a free unreleased song – collect all 4 to have the EP.
The intrinsic connection between beer and music can be seen in any venue across the country. The idea of fusing music, art and beer in a collaborative effort has been in the making for over a decade as Ohio Knife members and Moerlein brewers, especially head brewer Gregg Wilson, have not only been friends, but, shared the stage as fellow musicians and artists. Between Moerlein and Ohio Knife, the discussion of “Rock N’Roll & Beer” came through in a true collaboration – a labor of music, art and beer.
We decided on a American-style amber ale that is massively hopped with an experimental variety of amarillo, and citra. This beer is a liquid embodiment of a winding journey that a group of friends started on as a small college art-rock band and now has grown into a vision and we hope you enjoy this as much as we have enjoyed creating it – Thank you!

Formed just over a year ago by Ross Dolan (guitar), Laura Dolan (vocals), Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums) – Electric Citizen have had a busy year turning heads and ears onto their dark and esoteric style of haunting and unhallowed ’60s West Coast rock, and decidedly British-influenced heavy psychedelia.
Ohio Knife is a punch you in the gut, unforgiving, rock n’ roll band hailing from the great midwestern city of Cincinnati, USA. Utilizing off-the-beaten-path tunings, Ohio Knife’s Jason Snell brings raspy, two-toned vocals and spooky, soulful, trashy guitars while Joe Suer drops an ass-load of low-end drums, Scotty Wood provides the thumping low-end bass, and Andrew Higley, delivers all the booming fuzzed-out organ you could ever wish for in rock.
