Braxton Brewing Co.'s fifth-annual celebration of bourbon-barrel-aged stouts is back on Dec. 7 for Dark Charge Day

For 2019, the brewery is releasing six total barrel-aged Dark Charge variants coinciding with a winter block party featuring live music, food and limited beer bottle sales. Braxton says the six "have been derived from classic Braxton experimentation, some tried-and-true favorites and some that push the boundaries of the craft beer industry."

“Dark Charge Day is yet another way we’re able to celebrate Kentucky’s rich bourbon culture with craft beer drinkers,” Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing Co. says in a release. "This year’s event will once again push the boundaries of not only the craft beer industry, but will also challenge how the community thinks of Braxton. It’s our mission to bring one-of-a kind experiences to everyone who encounters the brewery, whether tasting our craft beer for the first time or immersing themselves in an event as booming as Dark Charge Day." 

The event runs 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Dec. 7 and is free to attend, but also includes a VIP option. VIP tickets cost $75 and include two specialty drink tickets (featuring Dark Charge or guest taps), five non-specialty Braxton beer tickets, a limited-edition Dark Charge print, a commemorative Dark Charge Day 2019 taster, food from Parlor on Seventh, VIP bottle sales and a private VIP area with restrooms. 

More details about the beers and block party are forthcoming.

Braxton is located at 27 W. Seventh St., Covington.
