Red Brick Brewing Company celebrates 17 this year, the oldest craft brewery in Atlanta, Georgia. The anniversary ale makes its third appearance, second time in the Brick Mason Series.
Red Brick’s Anniversary Ale was first brewed by their long time Brewmaster, Dave McClure, in 1995 while experimenting with bourbon and whiskey barrels at home. To his surprise the beer was enjoyed by all who tasted it and found that it became even tastier the longer it was aged. Nowadays, the Anniversary Ale is aged for a minimum of 6 to 8 months in bourbon barrels which gives it a unique bourbon undertone.
