Braxton Brewing Company is proud to be bringing home hardware from the Indiana Brewers’ Cup!
In the 19th Indiana State Fair Brewers’ Cup, Braxton Brewing Company won a bronze medal with 2016 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Charge, silver medal with 1957 English Style Mild and a silver medal with 2016 Molé Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Charge.
The three medals were the most won by any brewery outside the state of Indiana.
Dark Charge is a massive Imperial Stout that showcases Kentucky’s heritage – Bourbon. Dark as the Covington night, this beer features notes of stone fruits, chocolate, coffee, oak, roasted malts, and umami. With an oil-like consistency, and tan head, it is bold enough to inspire you and strong enough to light up a city. Dark Charge won bronze in the Smoke‐Flavored & Wood‐Aged Beer category.
The Molé variant of Dark Charge was infused with Ancho Chile, Cinnamon, Cocoa Nibs and Vanilla. This beer won silver in the Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer category.
1957 English Style Mild is our “All-Star Ale.” Utilizing specialty malts, this English Style Mild features a unique nuttiness and caramel-like sweetness that’s intended to remind you of America’s favorite ballpark snack. A faint hop presence to balance the light malt body makes this a great summer time, “take-me-out-to-the-ball-game” beer. 1957 won silver in the English Brown Ale category.
Congratulations to all the breweries involved. Daredevil Brewing, out of Indianapolis, took home the Best in Show! We look forward to seeing everyone next year at the 20th Indiana State Brewers’ Cup!
