Private Barrel Program

As a Kentucky Brewery, we pride ourselves on our robust Barrel Aging program. At any given time, we’re managing more than 300+ barrels of beer from all different types of sources. At the center of the program is our Winter Block Party – Greater Cincinnati’s premier Barrel Aged Beer festival and the release of our Dark Charge Barrel Aged Imperial Stout on the first Saturday in December.

To say we’ve learned a thing or two about how beers interact with barrels is an understatement, and now we’d like to bring you along for the ride. We’re offering the country’s first private barrel experience. A program unlike anything in the industry, and we can’t wait to share the experience with you.

The Braxton Private Barrel Program represents a unique opportunity to experience the barrel aging process from initial brewing all the way to packaging.

Do you have barrels left over from your private bourbon or whiskey picks? Have you ever dreamed up your own barrel aged beer that you just had to try? Well now’s the time to finally bring them to life.
