Braxton Named Official Beer of Breeder's Cup
Covington-based Braxton Brewing Company is now the official beer partner of the prestigious Breeders' Cup World Championships.
The iconic horse races will take place November 2 and 3 at Churchill Downs in Louisville.
Braxton will brew a limited-time specialty brew for the event, Braxton's Beeders' Cup Golden Ale.
It will be available at select Kroger stores in 4-packs for $9.99.
“With the Breeders’ Cup’s return to Kentucky, we are thrilled to partner with the distinguished and homegrown Braxton Brewing Company to introduce a signature Breeders’ Cup beer to this year’s World Championships,” said Craig Fravel, Breeders’ Cup president and CEO. “We are always looking to work with local partners who share our commitment to developing authentic and elevated experiences, and Braxton’s deep Kentucky roots and strong reputation made them the clear choice for this collaboration. We are looking forward to enjoying a glass of the brew alongside our fans this November.”
The new golden ale will be brewed in Covington - offering a crisp, clean, and refreshing beverage, Braxton said in a news release.
It will be poured at several official events and venues throughout the 2018 Breeders' Cup and the post-position draw on October 29.
“What can I say – there’s nothing more Kentucky than horse racing, and this year we’re thrilled to partner with the sport’s most prestigious and celebrated event – the Breeders’ Cup,” said Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO at Braxton Brewing Company. “To celebrate, we’ve created Breeders’ Cup Golden Ale, a high quality beer brewed to represent the incredible weekend.”
