04-31 – Dark Charge Day!

There are a lot of beer releases in Cincinnati.  It’s the great part of having as many breweries that we do – you get a lot of beer to go along with that.  It also means that when there are releases or events that are “different”, they stand out that much more than they would […]

Braxton’s Breeder’s Cup Partnership

There’s one thing that you need to understand about Braxton Brewing company to understand why this partnership is so great for Braxton.  While we may (rightfully so) claim them as one of our own breweries here in Cincinnati, and while they are certainly dedicated to the Queen City.  Braxton is a Kentucky Brewery.  Braxton loves […]

Braxton’s Newest Cans Bring Them Into The Cider Game

Braxton’s Kentucky Home Returns For Derby Day

I’m starting to realize that it’s just not a proper Kentucky Derby without two things for me: I need my annual bet with my brother.  It’s not a lot of money (it’s actually very little money, but that’s not the point) I need a bottle of Braxton’s Kentucky Home. Don’t tell any of my Kentucky […]

Braxton Introduces The Toolbox, a Mixed 12 Pack

Braxton Starts Distribution To Columbus, Ohio

It’s hard to believe the growth that Braxton has seen in the short (almost) 3 years since they opened their doors.  It seems like it was just yesterday that the announcement was made that the brewery would start sending it’s beer over the river into Ohio.  Things keep progressing along the meteoric path that they […]
