Red Brick Brother Leo

Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta, GA) is getting ready to release the next offering in the Brick Mason Series – Brother Leo. Leo is the follow up to recently released Three Bagger Tripel, aged in Cruzan rum barrels.

Many of the Brick Mason offerings are barrel aged, however Brother Leo won’t. As the brewery tells Beer Street Journal – “No barrel aging, but there are some badass hops in this one, like Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight, Chinook, Australian Summer, and Magnum.”

Rehearse your Gregorian chants, don your monastic habits and take your vows to the lost order of Brother Leo, devoted to the solitary contemplation of the ancient brew mysteries. Your new-found devotion to drink this heavenly combination of Belgian and American grains and its mild spiciness, moderate fruity esters, and boldly hoppy notes of citrus, pine and lemon, encourages sacrifice from the worldly distractions of lesser beers to worship in unity with this inspired brew. 

Style: Belgian-style India Pale Ale
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft.
Arrival: TBA

Red Brick Releases Beard Envy [VIDEO]

Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta) will have a new barrel aged offering on the shelves in the southeast this week. Beard Envy is the brewery’s barrel aged barley wine.

Brewers Garett Lockhart and Steve Anderson have been kicking around around the idea of barrel aging a barley wine for more than a year. After finishing off the 20th Anniversary Imperial Stout, they knew it was time for that brew. The name, was on accident.

If you’ve spent anytime at all around craft beer, you know that there are a lot of beards running around. Garett has openly admitted that his beard growing skills leave much to be desired. He has “beard envy.” The rest is now history.

Beard Envy is 9+% English-style barley wine aged in tertiary use Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. The final result is worth it. A beer that balances flavors of both the base beer and the barrel. Available now for a limited time.

Style: Barleywine (Barrel Aged, Bourbon)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft

9.3% ABV
