Braxton Labs Beer Science Fair: Firkin Profile: Jake Rouse

Beer Science Fair is an event to celebrate creativity, innovation, and individualism within the craft brewing industry. 9 of our brewers have put their noses to the grindstone to come up with firkins for testing and judging by YOU at Beer Science Fair on September 29th at Braxton Labs.

We’re very excited about the beers that our brewers have been working on, and we’re looking forward to sharing them with you! We’re continuing our brewer profile blog series and featuring the our CEO Jake Rouse. Yes, we said CEO. Jake’s been on a pumpkin kick for a while now, and he had one thing on his mind when we told him he could make his very own beer. Read about Jake and his creation below!

What’s your role at Braxton?
I’m the Co-Founder and CEO here at Braxton

Can you describe your beer/firkin?
My firkin is everything I have ever wanted in a beer – its a Pumpkin Spice Latte!

What inspired you to create this beer for the Science Fair?
I can’t lie – I love pumpkin and as soon as I knew we were doing a Pumpkin beer, I really wanted to create this variant.

Why are you excited about your firkin?
Because everything is better with pumpkin and pumpkin spice lattes are amazing.

What’s been your favorite Braxton beer/Braxton Labs beer this year and why?
That’s easy – Graeter’s Pumpkin Pie! It’s delicious

Why do you think your firkin will win the blue ribbon?
Because everyone loves pumpkin, and if they don’t they should.

We’re thrilled for the Braxton Labs Beer Science Fair to make its return in 2018. Seeing our brewers craft these remarkably unique beers makes us proud to work alongside such creative and inspired folks.

Beer Science Fair takes place on September 29th at Braxton Labs.
