Red Brick Brother Leo Joining Brick Mason Series

Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta, GA) is getting ready to release the next offering in the Brick Mason Series – Brother Leo. Leo is the follow up to recently released Three Bagger Tripel, aged in Cruzan rum barrels.

Many of the Brick Mason offerings are barrel aged, however Brother Leo won’t. As the brewery tells Beer Street Journal – “No barrel aging, but there are some badass hops in this one, like Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight, Chinook, Australian Summer, and Magnum.”

Rehearse your Gregorian chants, don your monastic habits and take your vows to the lost order of Brother Leo, devoted to the solitary contemplation of the ancient brew mysteries. Your new-found devotion to drink this heavenly combination of Belgian and American grains and its mild spiciness, moderate fruity esters, and boldly hoppy notes of citrus, pine and lemon, encourages sacrifice from the worldly distractions of lesser beers to worship in unity with this inspired brew. 

Style: Belgian-style India Pale Ale
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft.
Arrival: TBA

9.5% ABV

Southern Tier’s New Big Bottle

Southern Tier Brewing (Lakewood, NY) has a new Belgian-style IPA coming your way. Tier de Garde celebrates the teamwork of tandem biking, or for that matter, tandem drinking, with a hoppy offering with grapefruit peel.

Being on the street at bicycle pace is an experiential way of seeing the world. All senses are tuned. Every revolution moves the rider closer to the destination. Pedaling with friends is a social event and an exercise in teamwork. Similarly, the ingredients in the bottle work together to reach an end. This big bottle is an easy invitation to raise a glass in celebration. 

You’ll find Southern Tier Tier de Garde in big bottles for easy sharing. Tier’s artwork falls in line with two other recent releases by the brewery – Sonnet, and Grand Arbor.
