I should have seen this one coming, after all, I have seen many photos of Braxton beer sitting next to “Big Green Eggs” from Jake Ruse over the last year… my investigative skills must be slipping lately!  Braxton is teaming up with Big Green Egg to host a grilling competition that will be part of a new event that I’m super thrilled for…

The Summer Block Party

The brewery is bringing the beer community together once again, after the success of their winter block party last December.  This Summer block party will feature not only the grilling competition, but live music and more… including a new beer (we’ll learn more about that later)!  [Edit] – I had to get back here and edit out all the info about tickets to the event… They’ve now made it free! 10 points to Braxton and The Big Green Egg for awesomeness!

To celebrate the grilling season, the event will also feature food from Cincinnati favorites: Flipdaddy’s Burgers, The Oak Tavern wings, and Wunderbar Sausage available for sampling.

The Big Green EggBig Green Eggfest

To really do things the right way, the brewery teamed up with Big Green Egg to offer a lot of stuff for fans, or those who might be new to what they call ‘The most versatile barbeque or outdoor cooking product on the market’ – The folks from Big Green Egg National will be on hand to prepare samples and showcase the grill, while those that are interested in learning more will be able to jump in on a series of classes throughout the day taught by the experts.

There is a big competition at hand here as well.  10 local teams will be facing off in a head to head competition to create the best rib recipe using local Colonel De seasonings to flavor their meat on the Big Green Egg.  Samples will be available from 12:30-5:30, and the winner will be announced at 7:00pm

The Details

The party is going to be awesome… if Braxton has proven anything in their first year, it’s that they brew some fantastic beer, and know how to throw a hell of a party – so mark your calendar for June 18th at noon – head over to facebook and tell all your friends too!
