Holy Grail Tavern and Grille Partners with Cincy Reigns to Support Cincinnati Athletics

An additional $.50 to be donated to Cincy Reigns with every Cincy Light pint sold at Holy Grail

CINCINNATI, Ohio (September 8, 2023) 

Cheers! Fans of the popular new Cincy Light Lager will now be able to have a glass of the beer at the Holy Grail Tavern and Grille, one of downtown’s most popular restaurants.

Beginning Saturday at 6 p.m. as part of Bearcat Journal’s Watch Party for the Cincinnati at Pitt football game Cincy Light will be on tap at Holy Grail thanks to a partnership between Cincy Reigns and Holy Grail.

Central to this collaboration will be the Holy Grail’s offering of Cincy Light Lager, which benefits student-athletes at the University of Cincinnati through Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) opportunities. 

As part of the partnership, the Holy Grail is doubling down on its commitment to Cincinnati Athletics. For each sale of a Cincy Light, an additional $.50 will be donated to Cincy Reigns. This initiative complements Holy Grail’s dedication to local community outreach and its deep-rooted support for Cincinnati’s hometown teams.

“I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Jim Moehring and Don Andres for their leadership and unwavering support of the Bearcats,” begins Brian Fox, Chair of the Cincy Reigns Board of Directors. “Some of my first experiences as a Bearcat were as a customer at Holy Grail in Clifton on West Charlton Street, I’ve watched with admiration how they have transformed the brand and restaurant into a revered Cincinnati institution. Their dedication fuels our joint vision and is a testament to what we can achieve together. This partnership not only fortifies our collaboration but also promises a robust future for our Bearcats community that we are excited to be a part of.”

Holy Grail Tavern and Grille has always strived for deep connections with the local sports community. This partnership not only brings together local businesses in shared commitment but truly amplifies the collective potential of Bearcats’ fans locally and nationally. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to make this partnership with Cincy Reigns come to life,” said Jim Moehring, co-founder of Holy Grail. “Introducing the Cincy Light at Holy Grail signifies more than just a new beer; it highlights the passion of our city’s sports culture, our commitment to quality hospitality, and an unwavering belief in the power of community. This partnership allows Donny (Holy Grail Co-founder, Don Andres) and I to give back to the Bearcats when they need it most and in an innovative new way, and we’re thrilled to be able to support Brian and the Cincy Reigns team”.

By choosing the Cincy Light at Holy Grail Tavern and Grille and around the city, fans are choosing to support the Cincinnati sports community.

Raise a glass to a stronger Cincinnati this Saturday at the Bearcat Journal Watch Party and follow along the partnership journey one Cincy Light at a time.
