They make a big point with Summertrip and it’s branding to let us drinkers know that Summer vacations (and even summer itself) are nothing more than a state of mind if you allow it to be.  (You can read a little bit more about Summertrip here if you don’t know about this delicious beer) After a long, hellish day at work you can put your feet up on the porch (sorry guys… in the garage), you can then crack open a can of Summertrip and be taken away immediately to a beach.

To continue this train of thought, Braxton is boosting your summer and giving you a getaway worthy of the heat we’ve been living through lately with their Summertrip Luau next week.

About The Party

On Saturday, June 30th the brewery will transform into a tropical Hawaiian getaway.  The taproom will be complete with everything you need to forget that you’re still stuck at home, and not on a vacation.

How can a brewery make you forget that you’re in Covington, Kentucky and not in a Polynesian paradise?  Have some faith… you do remember that these guys managed to turn their garage taproom into a German Biergarten, right?

The Entertainment

The brewery is getting some help from the Sunburners to set the mood.  The Sunburners’ fantastic Island Party music will be filling every nook and cranny of the taproom from 2-4pm.

If music doesn’t get your heart beating enough, the brewery will also have dual dunk tanks on site and will be selling $1 tickets (donations going to Make-A-Wish) for ‘dunk the brewer’.

The Drinks

You know that they’ll be pouring Summertrip, their Passionfruit Berliner Weisse beer that inspired the whole event.  But what you might also be happy to hear is that they’re tapping a new Braxton Labs beer too.  Braxton Labs took inspiration for this new brew from the Pina Colada.  This new beer from the Labs is brewed with fresh pineapple puree and infused with toasted coconut for tropical cocktail flavors in a beer glass. If that’s not summery enough for you, or cold enough.  While they last, they’ll also have Summertrip Slushies on sale.  Yeah… slushies.

Even More!

Throughout the day, Braxton will be giving out plenty of Summertrip swag.  Don’t think that you won’t want to show up without your best luau gear already on, though.  The best dressed couple and best dressed individual will win a ticket to Jimmy Buffet’s Concert at Riverbend. I think that the competition is going to be fierce for this one!

If you want more, or just want to share the event with your friends you can RSVP on Facebook and share away.  You deserve this vacation, Cincy.
