CB_Nutcracker AleCINCINNATI, OH.  (November 5, 2019) – Cincinnati Ballet and Taft’s Brewing Company are proud to announce the creation of the first-ever ‘Nutcracker’ Ale. Based on Taft’s classic holiday winter warmer ale, Santa’s Bribe, this Nutcracker Ale is filled with similar festive flavors including cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. Expect more and stronger! This specialty version pairs perfectly with a Christmas cookie or two.

Please join us for The Nutcracker presented by Frisch’s Big Boy at historic Music Hall December 19 through December 29. The family favorite follows Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they travel to the Land of Sweets and meet a colorful cast of characters. Ticket information at

About Taft’s Brewing Company
Taft’s Brewing Company was founded in 2015 through the creation of Taft’s Ale House. The founders of Taft’s partnered with the Cincinnati Center City Development Corp (3CDC) to create the brewery and restaurant located in Cincinnati’s Over-The-Rhine. The three-story Ale House resides in a renovated historic church originally built in 1850 and offers premium steak fare in a beautifully designed space. In 2017, the Taft’s team created a production brewery and tap room, Taft’s Brewpourium, located in Spring Grove Village. The 50,000-square-foot facility is home to high-volume brewing and beer kegging, canning and packaging. The Brewpourium tap room offers guests 12-15 of Taft’s house-created brews and New Haven style coal-fired pizza. Taft’s beers can also be found in bars, restaurants, grocery stores and other outlets across the region. Visit
