Beer & Yoga - Tuesday Evenings


Beer & Yoga - why not combine two great things?

Join us every Tuesday evening at 5:30pm in our outdoor beer garden. 
Classes are rain or shine- they will be moved indoors if the weather does not cooperate. 

$15 for the class which includes a craft beer from our Local 30 list.
Cash only. 
$12 for just the class, no beer.

Hosted by Ashley-Brooke McGinty

Classes will ignite the light from deep within you by vibrantly complimenting you in each and every moment. Through guided pranayama(breath control), meditation and Asana(postures) you will use self exploration and action to set clear intentions on and off the mat. Ashley-Brooke uses a balanced combination of sustained poses with attention to alignment and therapeutic principles to help support beginners learn the basics while more experienced students take postures to a deeper level.

DING DING DING! Ladies and Gentlemen... Welcome to Braxton Labs MAIN event! Let's get ready to ruuuumbblle!

Introducing... The Battle of the Berliners! 

We've brewed a beautiful Berliner Weisse and infused it with two different fruits. One is Pear. One is Kiwi. Stop in to HopCat, try both and vote for one. The winner might become part of a special project later in the year.

Braxton Labs allows us to innovate, create and experiment. And it allows us to listen to you.

Here, we can create something small batch and let you tell us what you like best. From there, the team at Braxton Brewing Company can scale the recipe up and take it to more people in more places.

Pear or Kiwi? Lift TWO to life and let us know!
