Bunbury Music Festival & Braxton Brewing Co. announce festival’s official craft beer


Celebrating its sixth year in 2017, the three-day music festival will return to downtown Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove from June 2-4, transforming the banks of the Ohio River into a vibrant festival experience. Braxton Brewing Company, based in Covington, Ky., outside Cincinnati, is sponsoring the 2017 Bunbury Music Festival craft beer village.

Buzz will be available at Greater Cincinnati Kroger stores as well as bars, restaurants and liquor stores leading up to the event, and at the craft beer village during all three days of the festival. A crisp, light and slightly sweet balanced beer with subtle peach flavors and hop characters, Buzz is a twist on a traditional Kölsch and brewed to be the perfect outdoor summer sipper.

“There are few things better in the summer in Cincinnati than the Bunbury music festival,” said Jake Rouse, co-founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing Company. “This year, we’re thrilled to pair local beer, Buzz, with our favorite live music festival for three days of summer fun!”

The public (21+) is welcome to attend the free tapping event at Braxton Brewing Company on Thursday, May 25 at 6 p.m. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/303667616713286/.

On Friday, May 26, 16-Bit Bar+Arcade (1331 Walnut St., Cincinnati) will host a Bunbury Buzz Tap Takeover featuring Buzz as well as four other Braxton beers.
