Dark Charge Returns for Year 5

2018 was a big year for Dark Charge. We introduced a brand new VIP experience, sold more bottles than ever, and hosted the largest Winter Block Party that 7th street has ever seen. This year, Dark Charge Day returns with the same massive Imperial Stout you’ve come to love — now, a year older and a year bolder.

Save the date for Dark Charge Day — Saturday, December 7th, 2019!

As you’ve come to expect, Dark Charge Day 2019 will feature the release of our biggest beer of the year — Dark Charge Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. This year, the Dark Charge variants come with some one-of-a-kind experiments, some tried and true favorites, and some very special projects we can’t wait to share with the Braxton community. More to come on that…

Dark Charge Day 2019 Details

Live Music
We’ll also be hosting a killer lineup of live music and live DJs (bring back club Braxton?) throughout the day to keep the party rocking. Stay tuned as we’ll release the full music lineup as we get closer to December 7th!

Local Food Options
We’ve always placed an emphasis on partnering with our neighbors to provide local food options to keep your stomach full with something other than barrel-aged beer. This year will be no different, we’re partnering with local restaurants and food vendors to provide some delicious Dark Charge inspired bites.

VIP Experience
Don’t miss your chance to maximize your Dark Charge Day experience as an exclusive VIP! We heard your feedback on 2018’s Dark Charge Day VIP, and we’ve made some tweaks, so that every single VIP has an experience that they won’t soon forget.

Namely, we’ve updated the food program and introduced a new vendor – in 2019, we are partnering with our neighbors, Parlor on 7th, to handle the culinary experience for Dark Charge VIP’s.

Tickets for this unique experience will cost $75 and includes a host of great perks. Find out what the VIP Package includes below:

  • 2 Specialty drink tickets (Dark Charge or Guest Taps)
  • 5 Non Specialty Braxton Beer Drink Tickets
  • Limited Edition Dark Charge Print
  • Commemorative Dark Charge Day 2019 Taster
  • Food in VIP area provided by Parlor on 7th
  • VIP Bottle Sales
  • Private VIP Area in the Loft with access to private bathrooms

We’re excited to bring this legendary beer back to Covington with a Winter Block Party to celebrate Kentucky’s rich bourbon tradition in the only way we know how — high quality, barrel-aged beer.
