J.C. Newman Celebrates Fifth Year of Bricktoberfest

October 4, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

For the past five years, the month of October has been synonymous with Bricktoberfest for J.C. Newman Cigar Co. Each year, J.C. Newman launches a new Brick House branded beer stein which consumers can get with a seven-cigar purchase at participating retail locations. This year, the stein is a 1 liter “Das Boot” and is decorated with the Brick House vista and dated with Bricktoberfest 2022.

To make things more special in celebration of five years of Bricktoberfest, a limited-edition Brick House toro pigtail was created. Fans of Brick House will notice this is a different blend than a traditional Brick House Classic but will recognize the same flavorful and smooth tobacco with just a hint of spiciness that Nicaraguan cigars are known for. This cigar was blended to pair perfectly with a bold Oktoberfest style lager. These limited edition Bricktoberfest pigtails and beer steins are only available at select retail locations which can be found here.

“The founder of our company, my grandfather J.C. Newman, was born and raised in the only Brick House in his village in Hungary. This was the inspiration behind our Brick House brand and a depiction of that house can be seen on this year’s Bricktoberfest stein. Although Germany is most known for Oktoberfest, it’s neighboring country Hungary also does it up big in celebration, making Brick House the perfect cigar to smoke when celebrating this Bavarian holiday.” Said Eric Newman, President and third-generation owner.

During the Bricktoberfest 2022 promotion that runs from October 1st – October 31st, you can show off your love of Brick House cigars and get in the Oktoberfest spirit. When you purchase seven Brick House cigars, you’ll get a free Brick House Bricktoberfest 2022 Das Boot Stein. To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Bricktoberfest, J.C. Newman is offering a limited-time Bricktoberfest 2022 Pigtail Cigar available for sale at Bricktoberfest participating retailers. The seven cigars can be mixed and matched, meaning you can buy Brick House Classic, Maduro, or Double Connecticut.

J.C. Newman has also announced a social media contest to coincide with Bricktoberfest. When you participate on social media, you can win a Bricktoberfest Grand Prize (retail value of $340), with two ways to win.
