Red Brick Brewing Company, named Atlanta Brewing Company before 2010, is a brewery located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.The Atlanta Brewing Company was founded in 1993 by Greg Kelly, a former Guinness executive. The brewery, a converted old brick warehouse, was originally located at 1219 Williams Street. Pine-sided vats and cold tanks from England were purchased, and the beer was produced using an older traditional style of brewing. The large red malt mill, still used by the brewery today, was found sitting abandoned in a meadow in England. After being shipped to Atlanta and undergoing extensive refurbishing, the mill was put to work readying the grain for brewing.The name “Red Brick Ale” was given to the brewery’s flagship beer. One suggested (but ultimately discarded) name for the first beer was “John J. Bips Ale”, named after a long-term brewmaster at the historic Atlantic Brewery. Atlanta Brewing Company produced 4,000 barrels of beer in 1994, the first year of production. To maintain this initial demand, the brewery brewed once or twice a day. Peachtree Pale Ale, Spring Brew, Summer Brew, Winter Brew, Golden Lager, and Kelly’s Light were added to the line-up in the early years.As from February 2016, Red Brick beers are also available in Germany.HistoryAmong the various collaboration projects of 1996, ABC partnered with a Belgian brewery to release a Belgian beer called “Malone’s”. The beer was produced in Belgium, pasteurized, and then shipped in a large tanker truck. Upon arriving in the United States via ship, the tanker was driven to the brewery, and the beer was pumped into a holding tank. This imported beer was then carbonated and bottled for distribution. Surprisingly, two out of three batches survived the trip in drinkable condition.In 1997, Atlanta Brewing Company brewed Old Testy Coffee Stout for the Sandy Springs Taco Mac location. But the brewery’s most notable and lasting partnership is with the Vortex Bar and Grill, a two-location Atlanta institution. The beer’s name and labeling features the Vortex’s iconic “Laughing Skull” logo. The original incarnation was a full-bodied bohemian pilsner, which was dry hopped and lagered for sixty days before shipping.

    Booked this for my boyfriend and group of friends. They absolutely loved it! What an amazing time! Included in the tour I booked was 6 6oz. tastings, souvenir t-shirt and mug, and your choice of a 6 pack of their beer or a bottle of their house made wine. The tour was cool, it was included as well.

    It is always a pleasure to visit Red Brick Brewing and we love bringing our photo booth here. The space is trendy, atmospheric, and never gets old. Plus, the beer. ;)

    I might be biased, but the beer and staff are awesome. The Yuzu IPA makes me question whether or not I should even drink water anymore.

    Good beer and it was a lot of fun outside on Saturday afternoon. Parking wasn't awful, REI was there and they had live music. There was one food truck, but that's because four others bailed. Back again today on Sunday for more beer and a tour.

    Good down-to-earth staff that truly want you to have a good experience. The brews are all-around stellar. They have wide spectrum of ales for different palates, and don't sure don't hold back on the tasting pours!

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
