Beer meets Key Lime Pie in the latest one-of-a-kind mashup of two Midwest favorites based right here in Cincinnati, Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter’s Ice Cream.
Key Lime Pie Ale is a twist on Graeter’s seasonal – and fan-favored – Key Lime Pie Ice Cream with Braxton’s craft brewed ale.
Starting Tuesday, shoppers will be able to find this in a four-pack for $9.99 at fine retailers in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Louisville and Lexington.
It also will be sold at Braxton Brewing Co., which will also host a weekend release party in the Taproom in Covington, spanning from Friday morning to Sunday evening.
Customers will be able to experience a tropical themed Taproom and donut popup shop by Graeter’s Ice Cream, as the Tapping and Can Release of Graeter’s Key Lime Pie Ale is celebrated.
At the same time, Graeter’s is reintroducing its seasonal Key Lime Pie ice cream by the pint in scoop shops, online and in select retailers beginning Memorial Day weekend.
Graeter’s Key Lime Pie ice cream is made with a rich ice cream base, flavored with real key lime juice and crunchy graham crust pieces, bringing a refreshing key lime pie taste to the decadence for which Graeter’s is known, according to a joint news release from both companies.
Similarly, Braxton Brewing Co.’s Graeter’s Key Lime Pie Ale is brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, lactose and key lime zest to create a balance between sweet and tart that mimics the taste of Graeter’s classic summer ice cream flavor.
“We continue to watch our partnership with Braxton evolve, and it’s really very exciting,” said Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter’s Ice Cream.
“We’re reaching new consumers, helping a new generation to taste and fall in love with French Pot-made ice cream, and it’s stretching our creative approach to fan favorites, overall.”
“After the fanfare we received from the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout, we immediately knew we would continue our friendship and partnership with the Graeter’s team,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing. “The Key Lime Pie Ale collaboration has been a long time coming, and we’re excited to give craft beer drinkers a completely new experience to enjoy summer.”
