After more than a year of preparation, Braxton Brewing Co. announced that it will open on March 27, 2015. On this date, Northern Kentucky’s first free-standing microbrewery will host a grand opening party at their taproom and begin distribution with Stagnaro Distributing.
“Words can’t quite express how truly excited we are to open these doors and share our beer with the community that has lifted us up over the past year,” said Co-Founder and Braxton Brewing Co. CEO, Jake Rouse. “It’s going to be a very special day.”
The doors will open at 5 p.m. on March 27. Programming will begin at 7 p.m. The event highlights will include: four of Braxton’s beers on tap, Keith Neltner and the Neltner Small Batch team revealing his largest indoor installation, two local bands and tours of the brewery.
More event details can be found on Braxton Brewing Company’s Facebook page.
“We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with Braxton Brewing Co. on creating and launching their brand. Our work on the foundation, naming, identity, writing, signage and ultimately the large scale mural that adorns the concrete block bar in Covington is some of our most dramatic work to date,” said Keith Neltner of Neltner Small Batch. “So, let’s Lift One to Life.”
Two of the company’s flagship beers will be available on the 27th. Storm Golden Cream Ale, and Jumper Hoppy Wheat Ale will be available in the taproom and across the company’s distribution network.
“Storm and Jumper are both truly unique beers, and our team has been working for the better half of a year to perfect these recipes,” said Evan Rouse, Co-Founder and Head Brewer “We can’t wait for you to try them!”
Since announcing their plans on April 7th, 2014, the Braxton team has been working on renovating a 100-year old building. The taproom will feature a 20-tap draft system, a PEGAS growler filler, a state-of-the-art Special Events Room and more.
The taproom, which was introduced during a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, has been referenced to as “The Taproom of the Future.” Technologies such as gigabit internet, social media experiences and the best-in-class mobile application will bring this vision to life.
“The taproom of the future is about experiencing beer in a whole new way. We’ve been hard at work with our development partner, New Coast Ventures, to bring this vision to life,” said Jake Rouse. “We want people to learn more about our beer, stay up-to-date on what’s happening in the beer drinking community and easily find Braxton beer on tap.”
