COVINGTON, Ky. – Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter's Ice Cream are brewing up a real treat for this fall.
The Covington-based brewery announced it has once again teamed up with the 148-year-old Cincinnati craft ice cream maker to create its first seasonal Pumpkin Pie Ale. The beer will make its debut at a special release party this Friday at Braxton's Covington taproom, which is located at 27 W. Seventh St.
The Pumpkin Pie Ale will then be sold in cans at Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Lexington, Louisville and Northern Kentucky-area Kroger markets, plus other retailers, beginning on Sept. 17.
"Fall is a great time to be in the beer business, especially this year," said Jake Rouse, CEO of Braxton Brewing, in a press release. "Our new Pumpkin Pie Ale is not only a first for us, but we're also fortunate enough to once again be inspired by our friends at Graeter's. This is a beer that we're hoping will be another big hit with fans."
The ale will feature notes of pumpkin pie spice with a bold aroma and deep brown color.
Braxton and Graeter's previously collaborated to create the brewery's Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout, as well as the launch of Graeter’s Stout & Pretzels Ice Cream with Braxton Brewing Co.
Pumpkin Pie Ale will also be on tap at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, which takes place Sept. 21-23 on Second and Third streets, between Walnut and Elm streets, in Downtown Cincinnati.
