A good beer is a great friend in these turbulent times and, sometimes, to overcome the darkness in your soul you must drink a beer that’s even darker.
Braxton Brewing Company is celebrating the newest release of Dark Charge, its line of bourbon-barrel-aged Imperial Stouts. The Northern Kentucky brewery is so excited about the stouts, it gave them their own "day" — Dark Charge Day is Dec. 1 and ground-zero for Dark Charge Day partying is, of course, Braxton's Covington headquarters.
Festivities at this winter block party include live music, guest beers from friendly breweries and food prepared by local restaurants inspired by the Dark Charge beer. The event is free to attend, and food and drinks are available for purchase. If you’re feeling extra, VIP tickets are available with a slew of perks — two specialty drink tickets, five non-specialty tickets, a limited-edition print, food from ALTO Pizza Kitchen, a private bathroom and more — sure to delight the beer connoisseur in your life.
You can purchase Dark Charge to-go at the party as well with a limit of two bottles per variant per person.
Braxton is super-serious about this Dark Charge Day stuff — they even own the darkchargeday.com domain.
11 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday. Free admission; $75 VIP. Braxton Brewing Co., 27 W. Seventh St., Covington, braxtonbrewing.com.
