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 […]

Bircus Taproom/Bigtop Finally Sets Opening Date

There is a large number of people that when you first tell them about the Ludlow, Kentucky based circus/brewery hybrid known as ‘Bircus’ want to tell you about how it’s a gimmick.  I won’t argue that, and I don’t think that the head clown on duty, also known as Paul Miller (he’s actually a former […]

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 Brewing Company never really hid the fact that they were extremely interested in the cider market.  They’ve been slowly releasing the results of their experimentation with it recently, and it shouldn’t be a huge surprise to you if you’ve been watching that their next packaged product is ready to go – and that it’s […]

Looking Forward To This Weekends Punch Out? I’ve Got The Beer List!

It’s one of the best beer events in this city, hands down.  It’s certainly one of the most creative too.  On top of it all, the Fifty West Punch Out each year features some of the best, and biggest selections of local beer that you’ll find at any event around town.  I can only assume […]

Braxton Solves Their Food Dilemma With Help From Alto

If you’re a regular in the Braxton Covington taproom, you’ll be familiar with the “food dilemma” that has long plagued the brewery.  They never wanted to be a brewpub, and they honestly just don’t have the space to bring in a full time food vendor, and most of the solutions that they’ve tried to use, […]

Braxton Is Celebrating The Summer With A Summertrip Luau

They make a big point with Summertrip and it’s branding to let us drinkers know that Summer vacations (and even summer itself) are nothing more than a state of mind if you allow it to be.  (You can read a little bit more about Summertrip here if you don’t know about this delicious beer) After […]

Braxton’s Plan To Fill Your Fridge – Garage Beer

There are beers for every situation and mood that you happen to have as a craft beer drinker.  We are blessed to live in a city with enough breweries to provide beers for every one of those situations (and even some that you didn’t know you needed a beer for).  It’s even more exciting to […]

Local Breweries Showcased At The Commonwealth Cup

I’m a couple days late in getting this out there, but this weekend ended up being a really great showing for a few of our local breweries down in Lexington at the Commonwealth Cup at Alltech.  The yearly competition is massive, and you’ve never been to the beer festival that comes along with it, after […]

Braxton Labs Celebrates Their First Anniversary This Weekend

I know that we’re just now rolling out of the weekend, and headed back to work, but it’s never too early to start planning for the next weekend.  If you’re looking for some good beer events to add to your calendar you might want to look into swinging by Braxton Labs in Newport where they’ll […]

Alexandria Brewing Company Opens Their Doors – Here’s What To Expect

I know you’ve heard about these guys.  I think that Andy Reynolds and his Alexandria Brewing Company project have been in some stage of planning since before many of my readers were even old enough to have a legal drink… so yeah, this has been a long time coming to say the least. This weekend […]

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 […]
