Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla Returns to Brick Mason Lineup

Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla

Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla is returning as a permanent addition to the brewery’s Brick Mason lineup this month. The beer originally returned back to draft lineup in 2010. Since then, barrel aged, and smoked editions have been released.

Red Brick brewer Steve Anderson hand cut 800 Madacascar bourbon vanilla beans for this batch. It took over four hours.

Featuring Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans, which impart a rich, dark, and creamy character, these qualities enhance the luxurious chocolate notes in the carefully selected blend of six different malts.The result is a beer at the height of our creative expression as brewers, and completely deserving of our hightest distinction as a Brick Mason.

Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla is available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.

Style: Porter (w/ Vanilla Beans)
Hops: Apollo, Willamette

Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Year-round
Return: October, 2015

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
