Cans for a Cure! Blueberry Pie Brown Ale Release

From Facebook:

Introducing a freshly baked collaboration between two handcrafted families, benefiting The Cure Starts Now foundation and their worldwide effort to discover a “homerun” cure for cancer.

On Saturday, September 9, we’re releasing our Blueberry Pie Brown Ale in collaboration with Graeter’s Ice Cream. This Brown Ale is brewed with blueberry, vanilla bean and graham cracker.

We’re throwing a party to officially release the cans, tap the beer and introduce you to The Cure Starts Now foundation. Bob and Rich Graeter will be here to tap the beer with us and the Graeter’s team will also be handing out FREE SCOOPS while supplies last!

Bring your friends and family for a day of fun! We’ll have the Blueberry Pie Brown Ale and Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream from Graeter’s but we’ll also have Erin Coburn Music in the taproom and yard games in front of the taproom for you to enjoy. Cheese -N- Chong food truck will also be on site throughout the day.

This is Braxton Brewing Company’s most meaningful brew, benefiting The Cure Starts Now Foundation. We are passionate about this beer and excited to raise awareness for a great cause.

Join us and let’s #liftonetolife!
