Red Brick Brewing just recently made their name change official from Atlanta Brewing Company. Just thought you should know if you didn’t already. During Atlanta Beer Week, Red Brick will be debuting some interesting beers on their tours. More info will follow on each of these brews, and what dates to expect them, but in the meantime, here is some info.
Vanilla Gorilla – Barrel aged Oatmeal Stout, 10%. Red Brick aged an Oatmeal stout in bourbon oak, producing a nice vanilla tone to the chocolate malt background.
Barrel Aged Brown – ?? % ABV. RB’s American Brown ale aged in oak. Shares similarities with 15 Anniversary. (While not exact.) Coriander and orange peel was added to the beer during aging.
Grape Ape – Blended Ale, 10% ABV. Red Brick has been sitting on this one for a while. It’s a blend of a Belgian golden ale, mixed with a saison. Rosemary was added to the boil. Then aged in a pinot noir barrel
These beers will be featured on Red Brick’s tours during Atlanta Beer Week 2010. Vanilla Gorilla has been around before, but its a small batch brew that Red Brick produces when it can. There are also some special events cooking up at the brewery next week. Stay tuned for more info!
