Braxton Brewing Company Releases Oktoberfest Lager

COVINGTON, Ky. — Prost to new traditions! Braxton Brewing Company will be releasing its award-winning Oktoberfest Lager, Oktober Fuel, in cans beginning in August. Cans and draft will be available at the Covington Brewery starting Friday, August 3rd with a special tapping party featuring Zinzinnati Beir Band on September 7th. The award-winning lager will be available throughout the company’s entire distribution footprint.

“Oktoberfest in Cincinnati is one of the greatest celebrations in the country,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder & CEO of Braxton Brewing Company. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to celebrate these traditions with the return of Oktober Fuel. This traditional Oktoberfest lager is one of the finest beers we produce, and every year we look forward to lifting one to life with this incredibly traditional beer. Prost!”

Draft beer, along with 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, will be available at select retailers, liquor stores, bars, and restaurants across the brewing company’s distribution network in Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Louisville, Lexington, Dayton, Columbus, and Nashville.

This authentic German Lager was referenced as one of the best examples of style by Draft Magazine in 2016. Using a method called decoction to boil a portion of the beer’s mash bill, the brewery achieves a rich malt complexity that is delicately balanced by the addition of noble hops.

“Our first canned seasonal release is back again and I couldn’t be more excited,” said Evan Rouse, Braxton Brewing Company Co-Founder and COO. “This Oktoberfest Lager is brewed in the German Tradition and was mentioned as one of the best in the country by Draft Magazine.”

In their Covington taproom, Braxton will tap Oktober Fuel on Friday, August 3rd. On September 7th, they’ll be turning their taproom into a Beer Garden and be hosting live German music from the Zinzinnati Bierband.

We’ll meet you in the biergarten and let’s lift one to life all season long!
