Brewery, Graeter’s create pumpkin pie beer

Move aside pumpkin spice lattes. Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter’s Ice Cream have brewed up a real treat for the fall.

The Covington-based brewery announced it has once again teamed up with the 148-year-old Cincinnati craft ice cream maker to create its first seasonal Pumpkin Pie Ale. The beer made its debut Friday at Braxton’s Covington taproom.

Beginning Sept. 17, you can buy the Pumpkin Pie Ale in cans at Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Lexington, Louisville and Northern Kentucky-area Kroger stores as well as other retailers.

“Fall is a great time to be in the beer business, especially this year,” said Jake Rouse, CEO of Braxton Brewing, in a press release. “Our new Pumpkin Pie Ale is not only a first for us, but we’re also fortunate enough to once again be inspired by our friends at Graeter’s. This is a beer that we’re hoping will be another big hit with fans.”

The ale will feature notes of pumpkin pie spice with a bold aroma and deep brown color.

Braxton and Graeter’s previously collaborated to create the brewery’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout, as well as the launch of Graeter’s Stout & Pretzels Ice Cream with Braxton Brewing Co.

The beer will also be available at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati this month.
