Red Brick Brewing Company has released the third beer in its Brick Mason series, Beard Envy. This award-winning barleywine aged on bourbon barrel chips boasts notes of vanilla, white oak and Kentucky Bourbon on top of a rich malt backbone. See the release for all the details:


August 3rd, 2016 (ATLANTA, GA) – Georgia’s oldest operational craft brewery, Red Brick Brewing Company, announced today the release of its popular Barleywine; Beard Envy. 

“We are very excited to release this year's Beard Envy!” says head brewer Steve Anderson, “One of our most award winning recipes, this American Barleywine has rich malt flavors from the use of dark munich malt, perfectly balanced by bitterness from the hops. This barleywine is aged on Bourbon barrel chips which contribute a very distinct wood character including notes of vanilla, white oak and of course Kentucky Bourbon. The result is a very balanced barleywine that is great for any occasion” 

Red Brick has placed at the Cole’s barleywine competition with the previous three years Beard Envy editions: the 2014 brew took home silver, 2015 bronze, and 2016 Beard Envy won gold. 

Beard Envy is one of four beers offered in the Brick Mason line, along with Hype Whale (Imperial Stout), 3 Bagger (Belgian triple), and Vanilla Gorilla (Imperial Vanilla Porter).

Red Brick has been one of my favorites for a long time. I hope I can buy it down in St Augustine, but I doubt it. I will search it out next time I am in Hotlanta.
