Red Brick Brewing Co. and Georgia Aquarium are excited to announce their newest beer: Penguin Pale Ale.

Red Brick Brewing Co., Atlanta’s oldest operating craft brewer, and Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere, have partnered together to create their second exclusive craft beer, Penguin Pale Ale. This contemporary pale ale brings attention to Georgia Aquarium’s most popular aquatic birds, the endangered African penguins. A portion of Penguin Pale Ale sales will go towards Georgia Aquarium’s African penguin research and conservation efforts.

Red Brick and Georgia Aquarium continue to create beer that represents Atlanta in a unique way and highlights both organizations’ commitment to conservation.

Launch Party at Red Brick Brewing

Penguin Pale Ale will launch on Thursday, September 28 with a public event held at Red Brick Brewing Co. from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. You’ll enjoy an evening of craft beer, live music, games and fun! More importantly, a portion of proceeds goes towards Georgia Aquarium’s African penguin research and preservation initiatives.

Where to Buy

The beer is a limited-edition release and will be available to sample at Sips Under the Sea Pajama Jam on Friday, September 22 and on draft at Red Brick beginning Thursday, September 28. Penguin Pale Ale will be on shelves in select stores, and Café Aquaria at Georgia Aquarium, the week of October 2.
