(Atlanta, GA) – The latest from Red Brick Brewing Co., courtesy of Friday’s email blast…
April was a landmark month for us. We had the biggest production month in company history, with 1150 barrels brewed and 11,500 case equivalents packed out. A huge thanks to everyone at the brewery for their hard work in making this happen, and a big thanks to the distributors, retailers, and customers for supporting us in all our endeavors. Go team Red Brick!
April also saw the release of our latest barrel aged Brick Mason, Three Bagger. This 9.5% beauty of a Belgian Tripel was aged in rum barrels and is already receiving a lot of love on social media.
We’re following up behind this with the release with our summer seasonal, the newly repackaged Dog Days Hefeweizen, at the beginning of May. The label, a collaboration between us, our marketing team at Creative Mischief, and our friend Jert, features our marketing coordinator’s Boston Terrier and is some of our favorite artwork to date. The beer recipe has also been revamped slightly,
yielding a soft and pleasing easy to drink 4.1% Hefeweizen with nice banana notes from the yeast and a creamy mouthfeel courtesy of the ample amount of wheat.
Here’s some exciting news for you: we’re on the verge of releasing 22 oz bombers! As of this writing we’ve put our new machine through the paces and are eagerly planning our first release. It’s another collaboration with Rishi Tea, who supply the Chai (see what I did there?) for our Sacred Cow Milk Stout. Our inaugural bomber will be “Super Matcha Green Yuzu IPA”, a strong IPA brewed with green tea and yuzu. The artwork is inspired by classic anime films and was done by local comic artist James Cory Webster. Look for a mid-to-late June release for this one.
Also in June, we are planning another great craft beer-centric outdoor festival. The Red Brick Summer Brew Fest will be held June 14, and will feature a bunch of great specialty brews by us, including the introduction of our “beermosa”. This blend of Dog Days Hefeweizen and orange juice is sure to be a hit throughout the summer, and will be poured weekly at our “Hair of the Dog” Sunday tours.
