NOW TAPPING: Red Brick Long John Ale

Debuting on tap handles today at Taco Mac’s around Atlanta – Red Brick Brewing’s “Long John Ale”. Formerly known as “Winter”.  Taco Mac’s will exclusively tap this beer for a week, until it arrives in bottle and expanded draft late next week.

From Red Brick:
Red Brick Brewing’s newest beer for the winter season is a Belgian-style Dark Ale. It took several different malts from the United States and Belgium to get this beer to its hefty alcohol by volume (abv) of 8.2%. Chestnut brown in color with aromas of dark fruits and bananas rising from an alcohol laced head. A nice dried fruit and chocolate flavor makes it a wonderful winter beer. The beer will launched at the brewery on November 10th and bottles will be released in stores shortly thereafter.

Availability: 12oz/6 pks.  Draft.  Winter seasonal.
