Frisch’s Big Boy Creating a Pumpkin Beer with Taft’s Brewing Co.

Frisch’s Big Boy and Taft’s Brewing Co. are rustling up Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie Ale, an autumn beer in which cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg combine with vanilla for a smooth, creamy finish. The Ale will be available at all major and independent retailers in Greater Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Lexington and Louisville. Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie Ale (ABV: 6.0%, IBU: 30) will make its debut at an Aug. 12, 6 p.m. public event at Taft’s Ale House, 1429 Race Street, Downtown Cincinnati.

The first 75 people to arrive at the Aug. 12 Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie Ale event will receive a commemorative pint glass. Members of the media will receive a sample of Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie Ale. The event will also feature a question and answer session with Ryan Blandford, Head Brewer of Taft’s and a 6:30 p.m. toast from Jason Vaughn, the CEO of Frisch’s Big Boy.

“Two of Cincinnati’s biggest boys have come together to create a full-bodied limited edition ale that celebrates Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie. It pairs well with a carryout Big Boy sandwich and crinkle cut fries,” Vaughn says.

“Taft’s has called up the national gourd - Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie. We all have great memories of this fall favorite, and we’re proud and excited to partner with Frisch’s Big Boy to prove that pumpkin isn’t just for latte anymore,” adds Dave Kassling, managing partner of Taft’s Brewing Co.

In its continued effort to ensure the safety of the community, guests and employees, Taft’s Ale House is hosting multi-table reservations for group events. Tables are a minimum of six feet apart and guests will be asked to remain seated as much as possible. Face masks are required when not seated. More details are available at
