This Brewery In Cincinnati Used To Be A Church And You Need To See Inside

Cincinnati is filled with beautiful, historic buildings, and it’s always exciting (and relieving) when one of them is renovated and repurposed, but manages to maintain that old world charm. Once known as St. Paul’s Evangelical Church on Race Street in Over-the-Rhine, Taft’s Ale House has become a favorite dining destination. If you have yet to step through the old church doors, you won’t believe the stunning beauty that is hiding inside.

Taft’s Ale House pays homage to both the brewery-era of Cincinnati as well as a former president who made quite a name for himself and our city.
