Back in November, we mentioned that Georgia based Richland Rum has expanded. Then the same token, we mentioned that a local brewery might be sourcing rum barrels for a new beer.
Now, we aren’t saying these are Richland Rum barrels (yet), but it is a little coincidental. Red Brick Brewing is currently sourcing barrels for their next Brick Mason release, Three Bagger Tripel. Once the barrels are in place, the brewery will age Three Bagger in rum barrels.
Beer Street Journal videos to follow.
This month, Red Brick will blend their Beard Envy Barleywine. The beer has been aging for nearly six months in tertiary use Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels.
