Braxton Labs First Anniversary Party

Braxton Labs is a place to spark conversation, ignite innovation and celebrate the craft community. On Saturday, May 19th Braxton Labs will celebrate its first anniversary with a special party featuring the release of its popular Strawberry Gose in 500ml bottles. The bottles, which were originally scheduled to be released on May 12th will now be released at 11am on May 19th in Braxton Labs’ taproom for $6.99 per bottle or $24.99 for four bottles.


“I can’t believe Braxton Labs has been open for a year,” said Jake Rouse, Braxton Brewing Company Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer. “It’s been filled with learning, experiments, projects and a lot of awesome memories. We’re excited to share one of our most successful projects, the Strawberry Gose, with everyone in bottles!”

Braxton Labs will also celebrate their 1st Anniversary with a draft lineup featuring 42 taps of Braxton beers. Braxton Labs beers, Braxton Brewing core styles, Braxton Brewing seasonals and some of the brewery’s most limited projects will be on tap for one day only. In addition, the brewery will host live music and food trucks throughout the day.

Braxton Labs first tapped its Strawberry Gose in April. It’s been one of the brewery’s most popular draft offerings to date. The imperial-style, kettle-soured Gose clocks in at 6.5% ABV and gets Mediterranean Sea Salt and whole coriander in the boil to create a slick and citrusy profile. After primary fermentation, the brewery added 1.3 lbs/gallon of strawberry pureée to create a fruity gose perfect for celebrating.

Open since May of 2017, Braxton Labs is Braxton Brewing Company’s second brewing facility. The Covington-based company uses the Newport brewery and taproom as its place to experiment and innovate. This is the first packaged gose that Braxton Labs or Braxton Brewing Company has released.

“The Strawberry Gose bottles weren’t a project that we had on the calendar,” said Evan Rouse, Braxton Brewing Company Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer. “That’s what makes Braxton Labs so exciting for us. We tested it, our customers loved it and now we get to celebrate it at Braxton Labs’ first anniversary!”
