Red Brick Brewing Company, named Atlanta Brewing Company before 2010, is a brewery located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. 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.
