CINCINNATI — Braxton Brewing Co. and Graeter’s Ice Cream are teaming up again with the release of Graeter’s Key Lime Pie Ale.

Braxton Brewing’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 Cincinnati-based Graeter’s summer ice cream flavor, according to Braxton Brewing. The beer is available in Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati, as well as Louisville and Lexington, Ky., and at Braxton’s Taproom in Covington, Ky.

“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.”

Added Chip Graeter, owner of Graeter’s Ice Cream: “We continue to watch our partnership with Braxton evolve, and it’s really very exciting. 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.”
