Braxton Flip Out! Haven Hefeweizen & Kentucky Home Return

Braxton Flip Out! Haven Hefeweizen & Kentucky Home ReturnFrom Braxton:

Braxton Brewing Company is bringing Haven back to cans as its spring seasonal! The easy drinking unfiltered German Wheat beer features all the famous notes of a classic hefeweizen with yeast driven clove and banana characteristics. The 6-packs of 12 oz. cans are available now throughout the company’s distribution network. The cans will be released in the brewery’s Covington taproom Friday, April 5th.


Haven Hefeweizen was one of Braxton Brewing’s most popular seasonals in 2017. Now, in 2018, the beer will be available for even longer in Braxton’s portfolio. The 5.2% ABV beer features a can design with “HAVEN” spelled upside down. This is to encourage consumers to store the beer upside down. This method of storage is preferred with unfiltered Hefeweizens. As the can reads, “this hefe should be stored upside down until it’s time to lift one to life.” You can read more about this traditional storage technique from Braxton’s Head of Edcuation here.

Those who are familiar with drinking bottled hefeweizen know that the best way to serve this style of beer is to pour ½ to ¾ of it into a glass, swirl the beer that remains in the bottle to re-suspend the yeast, then pour that remainder into the glass as well. You are welcome to serve our cans of Haven this way, but the beauty of having this product in a can is that you can treat it just like Hefeweizen kegs are traditionally treated…store them upside down in your refrigerator, flip them over when you are ready to drink, and have at it! No swirling necessary.

This easy drinking, medium bodied and full flavored wheat beer is perfect for the Spring and Summer months. Find your Haven and lift one to life!

Braxton Flip Out! Haven Hefeweizen & Kentucky Home Return

Braxton Brewing Company is excited to be releasing Kentucky Home Mint Julep Style Ale again in 2018. Celebrating the traditions that make The Commonwealth uncommon, this golden strong ale was aged in freshly dumped Bourbon barrels and infused with fresh mint to celebrate the first Saturday in May.

The 2018 version is now available to reserved online. Customers may reserve up to 6 bottles of Kentucky Home. The 22 oz. bottles are $9.99/bottle. A limited number of bottles will be released to the public on Saturday, April 7th. Bottle Pickup and draft tapping will take place on that day.


A limited amount of bottles and draft beer will be available throughout Braxton’s distribution network in Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Lexington, Louisville, Dayton, Nashville and Columbus. The brewery is giving away the barrels that aged Kentucky Home at select retailers.

In the Covington taproom, the Mint Julep style ale will be served in this year’s commemorative Derby Glass. The brewery will offer a “Keep the Glass” special while supplies last.

This is the fourth time that the brewery has celebrated the Derby Day tradition of Mint Juleps with the release of Kentucky Home. Last year, the brewery updated the recipe to a stronger base beer. Braxton Brewing once again used this base recipe in 2018 resulting in a 9.5% ABV sipper that beautifully melds bourbon and mint.

Braxton Brewing Company will celebrate Derby Day as part of The Covington Trifecta with The Hannaford and Hotel Covington on Saturday, May 5th. The Covington Taproom will be home to a Keep the Glass special and competitions for Best Dressed, Best Hat and Best Couple. You can learn more about that party and join the event here.


Let’s lift one to the traditions that make The Commonwealth uncommon!
