Three 1/4" galvanized lagbolts 5" long with lead anchors. Top, bottom and middle. Be sure to anchor into the brick, not the mortar, and fill each hole with silicone caulk before you install the anchors.

Predrill the holes in the post so that the lag goes cleanly through and use galvanized washers to hold the post into place. If you wanted to you could recess the lags by drilling a hole with a spade bit (before you drill the hole for the lag) the same size as the washer about 3/4" in.
