COVINGTON, Ky. -- Braxton Brewing and Graeter's Ice Cream are once again whipping up their Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout that made waves last winter.
This time around, however, they've altered the recipe with more pure black raspberry puree and will ship it to Columbus and Nashville for sale.
The unusual milk stout will be available starting in early February at Cincinnati, Dayton, Lexington, Louisville, Nashville and Columbus-area Kroger markets for a limited time. It will be introduced at a Tapping Party Saturday night at Braxton Brewing's Covington Taproom.
Based on feedback from customers last year, the brewery has infused even more of Graeter's black raspberry flavor and changed the character of roasted malt to give it a more crisp flavor profile that is distinctively Graeter's.
"It's great to be able to work once again with this beloved local Cincinnati craft brand that puts as high an emphasis on authenticity as we do," said Jake Rouse, Braxton's co-founder and CEO. "We hand-crafted a new recipe to ensure that we released a beer we know craft food and beer lovers will appreciate, and the new Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout recipe does just that."
"We're excited to once again partner with Braxton Brewing Co. to release a milk stout that truly speaks to craft food and drink lovers," added Robert Graeter, fourth-generation co-owner and chief of quality assurance at Graeter's Ice Cream. "Both Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter's are dedicated to the art of our craft brands, and the re-launch of the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout is a reflection of that."
