43 Greater Cincinnati breweries team up to help citizens impacted by pandemic

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Breweries throughout the Greater Cincinnati area have come together to help those feeling the direct impact of COVID-19.

Taft’s Brewing Co. and 42 fellow breweries have teamed up to sell shirts and help people struggling during the pandemic.

The shirts, which were created by local company TB Products, feature logos from all 43 breweries with the phrases “We’re all in this together” and “Drink Cincy.”

You can buy the shirts online for $30 or you can swing by to get them at Taft’s Brewpourium on Spring Grove Avenue for $25.

Dave Kassling with Taft’s Brewing Co. says this was a chance to do something special and to remind people that the breweries are still here.

“Knowing that the breweries in Cincinnati are such a tight-knit group with such a great following in the community, we really felt like we would have an opportunity to do something extra special while also creating a rallying cry to get people to remember that the breweries are still there,” Kassling explained.

In addition to the shirt, Taft’s says customers will also get a $5 off one-time use gift card to use at the participating breweries.

All proceeds will go to Tri-State citizens directly impacted by the pandemic.

All of the proceeds will go to Tri-State citizens impacted by the coronavirus, according to the news release from Taft’s Brewing Co.
