When you ride The Salty Southern Route through Suffolk, Virginia, be sure to stop at Brick & Mortar Brewing Company for some delicious local suds!
Located on East Washington Street in Downtown Suffolk, Brick & Mortar is the city's first brewery! The owners have taken their passion for home brewing and brought it to an edgy and comfortable spot where customers can not only drink delicious brews, but wonder around the amazing 3,000 square foot tasting room, play games and check out local artwork on the tables.
But what about the beers?! With a 10 barrel brewhouse and a total of 40 barrels of fermentation space, this Veteran owned and operated brewery is constantly putting out a fresh and creative beer for your delight! Their latest release was the 7:01 Espresso Stout on November 24th. This 8.2% full bodied stout has been aged with white oat and cold brew espresso and is sure to warm you up on these cold winter days! Then, of course, a must have brew while riding The Salty Southern Route is Brick & Mortar's Peanut City Porter! Suffolk, a.k.a "The Peanut City," finally has its own beer! As a surprisingly light porter, this beer sits at a 4.7% ABV and hits the nose with the fresh scent of peanuts, exhibiting flavors of not only peanuts, but coco nibs and roasted barley leaves. Then there is the Rt. 58 Bipass IPA and The Nansemond Pale Ale, just to name a few more!
Also, this brewery is always having fun events! A couple on the books this month include Santa's Workshop, Dec. 5th, Sweater Weather Holiday Parade Party, Dec. 12th, their monthly trivia night on Dec. 12th, the Prohibition Party on Dec. 15th and The Action Packed Christmas Movie Night on Dec. 20th.
