It's Back: Braxton & Graeter's Re-Launch Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Beer

It's back.

Braxton Brewing Company and Graeter's Ice Cream have re-launched the wildly popular Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout.

Changes have been made to the recipe, adding more pure black raspberry puree to the beer. Also, for the first time, the brew will be available in Columbus and Nashville.

The unique milk stout will once again be available starting in early February at Cincinnati, Dayton, Lexington, Louisville, Nashville, and Columbus-area Kroger markets for a limited time. It will be introduced at a Tapping Party on February 3 at Braxton Brewing Co.’s Covington Taproom.


WATCH: RCN tasted the collaboration last year:


The Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout is a creatively crafted beverage inspired by one of Graeter’s oldest traditional flavors. Based on feedback from customers last year, the brewery has infused even more of Graeter’s proprietary pure Black Raspberry purée. Braxton Brewing Co. also changed the character of roasted malt to give it a more crisp flavor profile that is distinctively Graeter’s. Using Graeter’s exclusive black raspberry puree, Braxton Brewing Co. crafted this one-of-a-kind milk stout, a dark brew with notes of roasted barley and a creamy texture. This sweet treat will only be available for purchase for a limited time.

"It’s great to be able to work once again with this beloved local Cincinnati craft brand that puts as high an emphasis on authenticity as we do," said Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO. "We hand-crafted a new recipe to ensure that we released a beer we know craft food and beer lovers will appreciate, and the new Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout recipe does just that."

“We’re excited to once again partner with Braxton Brewing Co. to release a milk stout that truly speaks to craft food and drink lovers,” said Robert Graeter, fourth generation co-owner and chief of quality assurance at Graeter’s Ice Cream. “Both Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter’s are dedicated to the art of our craft brands, and the re-launch of the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout is a reflection of that.”

This collaboration between Graeter’s Ice Cream and the Braxton Brewing Co. is preceded by 2017’s launch of Graeter’s Stout & Pretzels Ice Cream.
