Dark Charge Day is back, here to help us drown our sorrows with tasty new variants of craft bourbon barrel-aged brews from Covington's Braxton Brewing Co. 

And like most events this year, the sixth-annual party is going virtual, offering an online platform to purchase the coveted beverages and some special releases and collabs. 

"This year’s variants promise to rival those of years prior," a press release from Braxton reads. "In particular, a specialty box, a unique addition to the usual celebrations, brings more intrigue with special barrel-aged imperial stouts. Furthermore, fans will be able to try a first-of-its-kind stout in collaboration with locally loved Papa’s Candy."

Variants include the Bourbon Barrel Aged — a Barrel Aged Imperial Stout cuvee of the 2018, 2019 and 2020 barrels — and a Double Mole, a classic variant with double the heat, which are available to preorder now Then on Nov. 23, Braxton is starting pre-orders for the Braxton Labs Affogato and the Double Barrel Peach Brandy.

The brewery will release their limited-edition specialty variants on Nov. 24, with online purchases available starting Nov. 27 for $60 a box (two-person limit). 

The brews will be available for pick up starting Dec. 5, Dark Charge Day, and purchasers can choose either the Covington or Cincinnati taproom for pick-up. 

All four Braxton locations will also be hosting celebrations on Dark Charge Day with 2020 Dark Charge variants on tap, plus live music and "special experiences." The site says that they will follow COVID-19 protocols to keep their patrons safe. 

“Dark Charge Day is yet another way we’re able to celebrate Kentucky’s rich bourbon culture with craft beer drinkers. This year, we feel the community needs that more than ever,” said Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing Co.

"We’re committed to pushing the boundaries of not only the craft beer industry but also challenging how the community thinks of Braxton."
