Braxton Brewing Company Signs Deal to Become Fort Thomas' Beer Vendor

Covington-based, Braxton Brewing Company has signed contract to become the sole beer vendor for all Fort Thomas events for the next two years.

They will replace West Sixth Brewing, based out of Lexington, Kentucky.

The City of Fort Thomas will continue to pull beverage licenses for the two biggest events the city hosts during the Fourth of July and Merchants and Music, both in Tower Park. In addition to Braxton offerings at those events, Miller Lite and Coors Light will also be available.

Jonathan Gandolf, Chief Marketing Officer at Braxton, said that they are excited about inking the deal with Fort Thomas.

"It's amazing," he said. "We've been attending these events for years and now to be apart of them as Braxton Brewing Company, it's a little surreal. Since the day we opened, Northern Kentucky has embraced us with open arms. Now, it's our turn to give back to the community that has so graciously supported us." 

The contract entails a payment from the brewery to the city for rights to be the exclusive vendor for the city. Those terms are public, but weren't disclosed.

Also in the works will be reciprocal marketing promotions for Fort Thomas events on Braxton-owned channels, a Fort Thomas specialty beer and a shandy beer to be brewed for summer events.

Braxton Brewing Company has grown from a garage to a taproom in Covington to a second facility, Braxton Labs, on the campus of The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky.

Gandolf said Braxton's goal is to support and grow locally.

"Local, local, local. Whether it's local arts, local goods, eating local or drinking local, consumers love knowing where their hard earned money is going," he said.

"Being able to shake the hands of the people who created the beer and brewery in our own backyard means a lot to us. We look forward to getting to know more of our supporters and lifting one to life all year long."
