Charitable Suds Pint Nights

Since April 2016, Rhinegeist has teamed up with Cincinnati Public Radio in order to provide fundraising opportunities to local nonprofits. Every Wednesday in our taproom from 5-8pm, $1 from every pint purchased is donated back to that week’s partner organization. We evaluate Charitable Suds Taproom Pint Night applications for the following calendar year, twice per current year.

The deadlines to apply to be selected for a 2021 Charitable Suds Pint Night are June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2020.
