“First rolled in the 1930s, Brick House was one of my great-grandfather’s original cigar brands,” fourth-generation owner Drew Newman said in a press release. “He created this brand to honor the rural village where he was born in Austria-Hungary. The house where he was born was known as the ‘brick house’ because it was the only house in the village made of brick. The bottom floor was a general store and tavern and my family lived on the second floor.”
