Graeter’s Ice Cream, the Cincinnati family-owned craft ice cream company has partnered with Braxton Brewing Co., a Covington beer maker, to release what it is calling “a unique ice cream-inspired stout.”
The brew, which is available for a limited time, is based on one of Graeter’s oldest and most traditional ice cream flavors and is called Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout.
The brew will be introduced at a collaborative tapping party Friday, and will be available beginning Monday at participating Kroger stores and other retailers in the greater Lexington, Louisville, Cincinnati and Dayton areas.
For those buying the beer, Jake Rouse, Braxton’s CEO, suggests letting it warm up a bit before drinking. It helps the flavors to develop, and “you’ll get more aroma, more flavor profile,” he said.
The beer is available for a limited time, but the collaboration between the businesses will continue, Rouse said. A beer-flavored ice cream might be introduced later in 2017.
