CINCINNATI, OH (December 7, 2022) – Braxton Brewing Co., Graeter’s Ice Cream and Dewey’s Pizza are paring up to offer Northern Kentucky families a winning trifecta of experience in 2023. Together, they will bring beer lovers, foodies, families and everyone in between a unique experience, right in the heart of Union, Kentucky. The destination will be a joint effort by the brands that effectively expands their presence throughout Kentucky. Coming to the city in late 2023, the destination includes a Braxton Taproom, Dewey’s Pizzeria, and Graeter’s Scoop Shop centered around a 20,000 sq ft greenspace and beer garden. The companies plan to activate the space with a special focus on building a family and community-centric experience, overall.
The three brands have always been highly focused on being a central part of the communities they serve. That, in part, has pushed them to seek continuous growth and expansion. The new site will be more than a hub for the three brands, it is designed to be a destination for families looking for specialty programming, music, events and more.
“We’re excited about our collaboration in Union. For Graeter’s Ice Cream the scoop shop experience has always been a special way for people to enjoy our ice cream,” shared Chip Graeter, fourth generation family member and Chief of Retail Operations at Graeter’s Ice Cream. “Working with two other brands that put the same emphasis on guest experience is a privilege.”
“We love working with like-minded brands that embrace our communities in much the same way as we do," said Chuck Lipp, President of Dewey's Pizza. "Each brand will provide a premium experience for our collective guests. And, together, we will offer the community a space to meet and enjoy” Lipp also shared that guests will have options for dining at the new space, all with the hospitality and excellence Dewey’s is known for.
“Opening this new taproom in Union brings Braxton full circle. We grew up less than 100 yards from this new destination so this project truly brings us back to our roots. This is where we come home,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing Co. "Not only are Graeter’s and Dewey’s great partners and pillars of the community, but they’re also the perfect way to make taproom guests smile. We want to bring three local favorites under one roof, once again.”
This partnership brings Braxton Taproom guests an entirely elevated food experience in Union, Kentucky. While it is an opportunity for Braxton, Graeter’s and Dewey’s to expand their footprints, the decision to open a taproom in Union truly stemmed from Braxton’s pride for its history and foundation. Guests will notice an ode to the craft beer brand’s proud roots.
