To celebrate pouring at Craft Beer Rising again this year, we’ve brewed two vermouth cocktail-inspired beers specially for the occasion; Martini Sour and Manhattan Sour.
This is the first in a new additional direction for us in 2019; an added arm of complexity to our continuing fruit sour based series. Adding twists such as wood ageing and cocktail inspired recipes, we have also moved the artwork on to the next era. Continuing to work with local artists and creatives, this series of beers will follow a Mid-Century Modern influence. After the Art Deco period – and in direct response to it – designers decided that function should dictate form, ditching the flashy designs and embracing stripped down and organic clean lines. The labels will follow this form, continuing to be inspired by the ingredients and background of the beer in the design also.
Manhattan Sour: Brewed with sweet cherry, bitter orange, cinnamon and ginger creates warming flavours made deeper and more complex from ageing on cherry wood.
Martini Sour: White grape, peach and lemon peel provide a delicate contrast to the dry base, with added chamomile, coriander seed and cardamom.
Taste them for the first time before it is released for general sale at the Taproom in keg or can.
Get your tickets here for our brewer-led tutored tasting session to taste both beers, chat to the brewer who made them and find more about the beers’ journey! Ticket includes a welcome pint of Brick Brewery Foundation Range beer (Pils, Pale, Rye or IPA) and tasting quantities of the Martini and Manhattan Sour.
The Taproom is open as usual all weekend to try the beer exclusively too!

Brick Brewery is supporting Tryanuary this year with a free Brewer Bottle Share: Beers That Shaped Our Brewing.
We have invited brewers from South East London breweries (line-up TBC) to bring along a beer that influenced their brewing the most. A journey through the inspirations behind the brews! The brewers, including a brewer from Brick Brewery, will be in attendance to taste and discuss their beer and brewing journey with the group.
This is also an opportunity to bring a bottle of your own (your favourite beer, one you have been saving for sharing or one that shaped your view of beer… anything you fancy!) to share with the group and discuss.
Now entering its fourth year, Tryanuary is a nationwide campaign to encourage support for the beer industry throughout January. Tryanuary was created to encourage beer fans to support independent breweries, pubs, bars and other retailers during what can be a challenging month for the industry. Since its inception in 2015, the campaign has garnered huge support.
NOTE: This is limited to 15 people and expected to be popular. As the event is free please make sure you can 100% attend the event so as not to leave spaces unattended.
*Please ensure you bring a bottle of your choice to share and discuss also!*
