From the very beginning of Braxton pouring Dead Blow in their taproom, there was a fun thing that people did… they ordered it with a little squirt of their cold brewed starter coffee in the glass.  I was first introduced to this concoction as “Blown Starter” and I fell in love.  Quickly soon afterwards it was made official, and the taps at Braxton’s Covington taproom were soon flowing with a tropical stout/coffee hybrid that people just couldn’t get enough of.

About The Beer

Dead Blow with Starter Coffee is made with 20lbs of Braxton’s proprietary coffee blend, added to their amazing Tropical Stout, Dead Blow.  If you don’t know much about Dead Blow, I encourage you to read up on the beer a little bit.

The release is the latest seasonal beer from Braxton, and will be available in 4 packs of 12 ounce cans

The Release Event

If you thought you had your Black Friday plans all mapped out already, you might want to reconsider.  The brewery is opening their doors at 8am on Friday, November 24th to release this crowd favorite beer.  If you’re one of those goofballs who needs a little more convincing, hopefully the name Holtman’s Donuts will help push you over the edge.

Holtman’s is going to be in the taproom for a pop-up shop that day.  This is in addition to the brewery tapping a ‘Thanksgiving Leftovers’ Firkin of beer too… it’s gonna be a hell of a day!
