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.

The Shell station will become the second business in the Washington Square retail center to offer craft beer on tap. The nearby Dorothy Lane Market offers eight craft beers on tap at its grocery store a few hundred feet from the Shell station.
