CINCINNATI (May 16, 2017) – PromoWest Productions and Braxton Brewing Company announced today the release of Buzz Honey Peach Kölsch, the official craft beer of the 2017 Bunbury Music Festival.
Celebrating its sixth year in 2017, the three-day music festival will return to downtown Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove from June 2-4, transforming the banks of the Ohio River into a vibrant festival experience. Braxton Brewing Company, based in Covington, Ky., outside Cincinnati, is sponsoring the 2017 Bunbury Music Festival craft beer village.
Buzz will be available at Greater Cincinnati Kroger stores as well as bars, restaurants and liquor stores leading up to the event, and at the craft beer village during all three days of the festival. A crisp, light and slightly sweet balanced beer with subtle peach flavors and hop characters, Buzz is a twist on a traditional Kölsch and brewed to be the perfect outdoor summer sipper.
“There are few things better in the summer in Cincinnati than the Bunbury music festival,” said Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing Company. “This year, we’re thrilled to pair local beer, Buzz, with our favorite live music festival for three days of summer fun!”
The public is welcome to attend the tapping event at Braxton Brewing Company on Thursday, May 25 at 6 p.m. The free event (21+) will also feature a performance from The Upset Victory who are also on the Bunbury Music Festival lineup.

About Braxton Brewing Company
Born in a garage, a passion for brewing has become an entrepreneurial obsession. Melding the age-old tradition of brewing beer and innovative new-age technology, dreams are born and fermented at Braxton Brewing Company. Just like the family garage, Braxton is an incubator, a home for enterprise. So it was for Evan Rouse. While other kids played video games and started garage bands, Evan fell in love with the craft of brewing beer. At only 16 years old, he built a home brewery right there in the family garage on Braxton Drive in Union, Kentucky. For Evan and the Rouse family, brewing beer transformed into much more than an idea, it became a revolution.
And now at Braxton, a garage is more than just a garage. It is the hub of our lives and a place where we showcase our passion for brewing beer. It’s here, where our expert team holds every single pint of Braxton beer to the highest standard of excellence. And like the garage of our past, our new home is deeply rooted in the community of Covington, Kentucky. So, welcome to Braxton Brewing Company. You’re witnessing a dream come to life.
