2012 Smoked Vanilla Gorilla from Red Brick Brewing - Brick Mason Series

Image
Last Friday, Red Brick Brewing did a small preview sampling of the next Brick Mason release Smoked Vanilla Gorilla. This is the first Brick Mason brew from Red Brick Brewing Co. Head Brewer, Garett Lockhart. Before heading to the brewhouse, Garett listened to long-time Red Brick fans about what they enjoyed most in previous Vanilla Gorilla incarnations. Fans of big rich American-Style Porters will appreciate this silky, robust malty brew.


Vanilla Gorilla is a Strong Porter with big chocolate and roasted flavors. It has a delicate addition of vanilla that compliments its subtle smokey finish.

2-Row, Chocolate, Wheat, Midnight Wheat, Roasted, Oats, and Peated Malt
Apollo, and Glacier hops Organic Bourbon vanilla beans from Uganda
8 % ABV

Packaging:
4-pack 12 ounce bottles 1/6 barrel kegs
