Braxton Brewery Turns Former Grocery Store into Barrel-Aging Brewery and Taproom

Covington, Ky. — Braxton Brewing Co., a local brewery with national recognition, plans to expand its presence to Fort Mitchell, Ky., with the opening of the area’s first barrel-aging brewery and taproom. Expected to open in fall 2019, the Braxton Barrel House will offer a unique experience for patrons by giving them the opportunity to create custom private barrel picks of barrel-aged brews.

The location of the brewery and taproom is a unique space. Once a Remke grocery store, the 2,000-square-foot loading dock will be redeveloped with large glass garage doors and a spacious outdoor patio. Then, the 20,000-square-foot warehouse under the main floor will house the barrel-aged beer, while a taproom for guests will sit on top.

“We’ve always been focused on creating one-of-a-kind experiences for our guests — both in the tap room and beyond,” says Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing. “We’re looking forward to sharing the Braxton Barrel House with Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati-area beer and bourbon drinkers who love Kentucky’s culture as much as we do. To our knowledge, this is the nation’s first dedicated private barrel program, and we’re so proud to open the doors to our newest location.”
