Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla is returning as a permanent addition to the brewery’s Brick Mason lineup this month. The beer originally returned back to draft lineup in 2010. Since then, barrel aged, and smoked editions have been released.
Red Brick brewer Steve Anderson hand cut 800 Madacascar bourbon vanilla beans for this batch. It took over four hours.
Featuring Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans, which impart a rich, dark, and creamy character, these qualities enhance the luxurious chocolate notes in the carefully selected blend of six different malts.The result is a beer at the height of our creative expression as brewers, and completely deserving of our hightest distinction as a Brick Mason.
Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla is available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Year-round
Return: October, 2015

Twenty-Two year. Wow, time flies. We remember when the whole world seemed like a giant bag of barley just waiting to be mashed.

Red Brick Hibiscuwit is coming to 12oz cans in mid-March. What was once a draft only offering last year is getting an upgrade to package.
The recipe is the brainchild of the brewery’s Tyler Cates. He entered Hibiscuwit into Red Brick’s quarterly Employee Brew-Off, and found his kegs were the first to go.
Red Brick Hibiscuwit is a Belgian-style wheat beer, brewed with organic hibiscus, sweet orange peel, and cinnamon. Hibiscuwit will be one of the first two core beers the brewery has released, after Laughing Skull launched last year.
Expect a Mid-March shelve date in Georgia, the brewery’s other states, by April, 2015.
Coming soon are some beers from the brewery’s core lineup, including year round IPA, Hoplanta.
Red Brick as partnered with can manufacturer Novelis for the brewery’s can production, using the company’s evercan, an even more “green” aluminum based product.
