The success of the craft-beer growler-refill system at one Shell station and convenience store has inspired another Shell station nearby to install its own.
The Washington Square Shell store at Far Hills Avenue (Ohio 48) and Whipp Road in Washington Twp. unveiled its new 15-tap growler-refill system this week, store owner Mona Olich told this news outlet. The Washington Square station is located two miles south of the Town & Country Shell station on Far Hills Avenue and Stroop Road in Kettering, which has offered craft beer growler refills since December 2015.
Olich said she saw the success that the 15-tap system at Town & Country Shell station, which is owned by her father and brother-in-law. And she knew it would be a good fit for her store in front of the Washington Square Shopping Center.
The Washington Twp. Shell will carry beers from Dayton-area breweries, other Ohio breweries, and craft breweries from other regions, Olich said. Among its opening-week selections are Yellow Springs Brewery’s Boat Show IPA, Toxic Brew Company’s ISO Heaven, Warped Wing Brewing Company’s Ermal’s Cream Ale, Bell’s Octoberfest, and Southern Tier’s Pumking.

The craft-beer tap system the store installed removes oxygen from the beer container — usually a 64-ounce “growler” or a 32-ounce “howler” — extending the beer’s shelf life for the customer, Olich said. The containers are sealed with tape after they’re filled and are not sold for consumption inside the store.

— Rain started to fall on and off at the Dayton Air Show around 11 a.m. as crowds started to grow with spectators.
Marvin Napier, of Huber Heights, stood underneath the wing of the Orbis Flying Hospital aircraft to shield his two young children from the rain.
"The rain is better than 95 degree heat where you're sweating. With the clouds, the planes will fly lower so it's a win-win," he said.
This is the first time he's taken his kids to the air show. They're excited for the Blue Angels and Sean D. Tucker.
Chris and Sandy Porter, of Bloomington, Ind., arrived bright and early to secure front-row seat at the air show. Sitting in a blue and white U.S.A. law chair, Sandy Porter said she and her husband made the drive up last night to meet with her family members from Columbus.

“It’s more just about being together with family. That’s what it’s all about,” she said.
Rain or shine, the family comes to the Dayton Air Show. She said they’re especially excited to see the Blue Angels this year.
An air show spokeswoman said officials anticipate less heat-related health issues from spectators this year because of chillier temperatures.
Terry Weaver drove from Pennsylvania to watch the Dayton Air Show, but he hasn't been here in years. In 2013, he and his son came to the air show when a pilot and wing walker died in a fiery crash.
"We saw everything. It's burned into my memory," he said. "My 9-year-old son, he hasn't wanted to come back."
Weaver said he was excited to finally come back for the show this weekend.
