Red Brick Brewing does barrel aging quite well. So well in fact, that their 15th Anniversary was a huge hit. A lot of Red Brick’s barrel aged offerings are not easy to come by. The brewery tours see these beers. However, “Vanilla Gorilla” Red Brick’s Porter, aged in bourbon barrels for 6 months. As an added bonus, vanilla beans from The San Francisco Herb Company were used. Vanilla Gorilla is a rare, tasty treat from Red Brick.
