Houses made out of red bricks are more likely to withstand wolf sneezes than ones made out of straw-colored bricks.

Formerly Atlanta Brewing Company, Red Brick Brewing is the oldest operating craft brewery in Georgia with award-winning brews such as oatmeal porter, blonde, and pale ale. In the new and comfortable tasting room, the knowledgeable staff will guide guests through beer and all its hoppy transformations. To the delight of touring taste buds, a state-of-the-art pouring system awakens laughing skull amber from a four-year cask-cocoon hibernation. Kick back and watch the game on the big screen while expanding your palate with experimental microbrews from the cold-one connoisseurs. Mix and mingle during the complimentary tour as big barrels stand sentry like wooden bouncers with hearts of fermented gold. You'll also have a chance to team up with new friends for Thursday’s trivia or listen to live music on Friday. On Saturday, Red Brick breaks out games, giving you a chance to show off your cornholing skills. Ping-pong tables, darts, and playing cards do their best to infuse the thrill of competition into every frosty mug.
Check out the daily tour menu to see what beers are on tap; you’ll get a total of four pours on this tour, so head in to learn about a brew you haven't tried yet, or get the guided tour and encounter an old favorite. Pint glasses are a great keepsake to remember fun tour times, and can be used as a party beverage holder, as well as a watering can or change purse.
