Known as the oldest craft brewery in Georgia, Red Brick offers Blonde, Brown, Pale, and Porter as well as seasonal and specialty offerings. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac, hidden from the loud streets of Atlanta is a good place to meet with friends, place some corn hole, or watch the live band on the patio.

They may not have over 100 taps of kegged beer, but they do have faith in their handcrafted German lagers as they are based on the 1516 German Purity Law, Reinheitsgebot (Rine-HEIGHT-ski-bot’), that implies that it only be made up of 4 ingredients. Experience the glass boot tradition and choose from the their bold menu that has American classics with a twist.
