Frequently Asked Questions

How much beer will be produced?

While yields vary, 1 barrel can produce 200+ 500ml glass bottles (16.9 oz)

How much will it cost?

The Private Barrel experience can range from $2,500-4,500 per barrel.

I am part of a bourbon group and have my own barrel, can we use this to age my beer?

Absolutely! As long as it is within 3 months of being dumped and you can bring your barrel to the Barrel House. This is called double-barrel aging.

Can I add adjuncts to my beer after it’s finished aging?

Absolutely. We can add things like vanilla, coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, etc.

How long will it be before I can get my beer?

The timing of the experience varies but typically can take anywhere from two months to an entire year (if double-barrel aging).

I have a kegerator, can I get my beer in draft and bottles?

Yes, we can do a combination of both.

Can I split the amount of bottles/draft with Braxton?

No, you are purchasing the entire barrel.

Do I get to name my beer?

Yes, we will add your beer’s name, abv, description and a logo (if applicable) to your label.

Can I create my own label?

Yes, but this will require additional fees.

What is the beer’s ABV?

Normally the ABV varies from 9% and can go as high as 18% if double barrel-aged.

How many people can attend the tasting?

Up to 8 people total can attend the tasting.

How long does the tasting last?

Up to 2 hours

Where are the tastings held?

We will host you in our barrel aging facility at the Braxton Barrel House on 5 Orphanage Rd. in Ft. Mitchell, KY

What will we be tasting?

Our private barrel team will pull 4 pre-aged bourbon barrel-aged beers from our collection based on the specific style(s) that you and your group are interested in.

Will there be food at my tasting?

There will be some charcuterie provided for you and your group. Nothing too filling so don’t come on an empty stomach.

How does the tasting work?

We will hold a blind tasting with 4 barrel-aged beers. These will all be straight from the barrel at room temperature and noncarbonated. Your group will be asked to try and rate each beer to narrow the choices down until you agree on the winner. Once you’ve chosen your beer, we can discuss adjuncting, packaging, and naming your beer.
