I feel like everytime my brain thinks of a Braxton beer that I’d like in my fridge they announce that it’s going to be hitting the canning line that same afternoon.  They’ve been absolutely tearing it up in the packaging department so far in 2017 (and the rumor is that they still aren’t done with new can releases…)

You might have seen this pop up today on social media, so If I’m repeating something you’ve already read, I’m sort of sorry… but I have been hoping for this moment to come since the first sip of their summer seasonal ‘Summertrip’ last year.  Yes, they are releasing this in cans to slide right into a welcome spot in their seasonal can lineup.

About Summetrip

I love these easy drinking, fruited sour beers.  Berliners, Goses, anything slightly (or not so slightly) tart and fruity – I’m all about it as the weather warms up.

Summertrip fits the bill perfectly.

The beer clocks in at 4.2% ABV and is hit with Passion Fruit to give you a wonderful summer beer that is nothing if not “crushable”.  The brewery’s description puts it better than I could:

Summer isn’t a season, it’s a state of mind


When the weather overheated like a radiator on the fritz, to was time to step out of the garage and head somewhere cool to relax.  We found every excuse to celebrate those dog days with our family and friends, because it reminded us all that summer isn’t a season, it’s a state of mind.  Introducing Summertrip, a lively beer brewed to let loose and live up those days that never seem to end.

The bright blue cans, with yellow and pink standing brightly off the background will certainly stand out on the shelf, as well as look perfectly at home next to the swimming pool this year.

(For another look at this beer – you can look back at Cincy Brewcast – Volume 2, Episode 17 where we sipped this alongside our Burger Week discussion last year with Evan Rouse)

Get In My Fridge!

So… when can you get it?  Well, it comes out in the taproom starting this Friday, as well as hitting distribution next week – so the answer is ‘really soon’.

The taproom party kicks off at 5:30 pm on Friday – and you can RSVP and share it with your friends via Facebook.

Cate’s Cookie Kitchen will be on site to make sure that you don’t get hungry, and you’ll be able to be one of the first to snag one (or four) of these six packs to take home and fill your cooler, your fridge and your belly with.

But Wait… There’s More!  Get Your Own Summertrip!

How else should you celebrate a release that Evan Rouse called “One of the most exciting release of 2016” in the often re-quoted press release that I’m staring at than to do so by giving away a couple “Kentucky Summer Trips” to some Braxton fans?

Throughout the summer they’ll be giving a couple trips away – so make sure that you hit up their website to sign up to win!
