Brick trim/veneer over wood post

I have three 8x8 posts in front of my house; they hold up the front porch and patio coverings. Can I build a brick base around them (+/- 3 feet tall)? How would I do it? Is there some type of flashing that I would use behind it or at the top to keep water from flowing down the wood? Do I angle a brick at the top to aid in drainage. Any help would be appreciated.

You would install the brick veneer the same as for siding a house. Angling exposed brick would help with water diversion as for a window sill.
