CINCINNATI -- Looking for some last-minute gifts for the craft beer fan or artisan product fan in your life? The city’s oldest bar is here to help.

On Saturday, Arnold’s Bar & Grill will transform its courtyard into the “Craft Menagerie Last Minute Holiday Market” from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The indie craft market will be full of times that are unique and hand-made. The event will feature 20 vendors selling everything from fine jewelry to screen printed posters and more.

The fun doesn’t stop there. MadTree Brewing signed on to offer some special releases and gift packs just in time for the holidays.

The bottle releases include some of the brewery’s most limited and sought-after brews.

The bottles will be sold as to-go retail, meaning fans can’t crack them open as soon as the bottles are in hand.

There will be two gift packs from the brewery. One features Tequila Tiamat and the other featuring Gin Barrel Joon. Both beers are sold out everywhere.

Joon was one of the Top 25 beer releases of 2015 according to Draft magazine.

Each bottle will be packaged with a limited edition Teku glass from MadTree’s Trunk and Funk series. The gift packs will sell for $21.99.

MadTree is also hosting a tap takeover at the bar that includes some of the brewery’s flagships and hard-to-find beers.

Arnold’s will have a limited menu of sandwiches and fries that day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will open for full business and normal table service at 5 p.m. The bar will be open all day.
