What's neu at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati?
From a Graeter's mystery icecream flavor to tasty beer collaborations, here's what you should be on the lookout for at Oktoberfest 2017.
Expanded Zinzinnati Craft Bier Garten
The expanded Zinzinnati Craft Bier Garten will feature five regional Cincinnati breweries in an intimate, yet bigger location at Third and Walnut Streets. Featured breweries for 2017 are Braxton, MadTree, Rhinegeist, Taft’s Ale House and Samuel Adams and Urban Artifact collaborating to present Tricorne.
Tricorne is a tart New England IPA, which will simultaneously enjoy its world debut at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati and the Ohio Pawpaw Festival. The collaboration is brewed with Paw Paw fruit, which is native to Ohio.
Braxton Fass Bar
The all-new Braxton Fass Bar at Third and Walnut Streets will feature weekend sports and more on a 20-foot LED TV atop an elevated stage. Extending from the stage will be two 30-foot bars and a seating area.
Of course, Braxton Brewing Company beer will be available in abundance. Their authentic Oktoberfest beer, Oktober Fuel, will be on tap alongside core styles and seasonal beers. Througout Oktoberfest Zinzinnati weekend, they will also host timed tappings of new beers from Braxton Labs, their recently opened Newport, Kentucky innovation facility.
Braxton Fass Morder
Every time a keg blows at the Braxton Fass Bar, bartenders will create a chaotic scene with whistles, flags and a Braxton Fass bar toast. If you’re the person who ordered the keg-blowing beer, you receive an official “Braxton Fass Morder” T-shirt!
Braxton Brewing Company will offer many specialty beers at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, including Graeter’s Blueberry Pie Brown Ale with proceeds benefitting The Cure Starts Now. To eliminate cancer as a whole, The Cure Starts Now funds research through collaboration, transparency, and the elimination of duplication while cultivating innovation for the homerun cure.
Braxton Brewing Company/Greater’s Mystery Ice Cream
As part of Braxton’s large presence at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, the brewing company will introduce a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Cincinnati’s Graeter’s Ice Cream. The new Graeter’s flavor, which has yet to been unveiled to the public, will remain a mystery until the unveiling, Friday, September 15, 5 p.m. at the Braxton Brewing Co.’s booth at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati.
It will also be available for purchase, beginning October 1, at all Graeter’s scoop shops and on Graeter’s online store.
