Giving Back

At Rhinegeist we are committed to serving and giving back to the community. Through volunteer work, donations, philanthropic initiatives, taproom fundraisers, and our weekly Charitable Suds program, we work hard to make a difference in Cincinnati and beyond. Read on to learn about our charitable efforts.

Our Focus

Our Focus

Since Rhinegeist opened in 2013, our team has been continuously overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the OTR and Greater Cincinnati communities. We view our community programs and philanthropic efforts as a chance to give back and reciprocate the love we feel each and every day. Our efforts focus on improving the equality of opportunity for the less fortunate, increasing access to quality childhood education, improving addiction & mental health services, medical research, and environmental welfare.
