About the Venue
Braxton Brewing Company was born in a garage on Braxton Drive in Union, Kentucky where their head brewer began honing his craft at the age of 16. Though now located in a 100 plus year old building in Covington, they still hold on to the idea that a garage is a place where you can build your hopes and dreams. With this concept central to their philosophy, the crew at Braxton is focused on being a catalyst for innovation in the area as Covington prepares to celebrate its bicentennial year.
We offer free shipping on orders placed at the Event (excluding Workbenches, Vise Hardware, and Dovetail Vise).
