During my three days in Decatur, I visited the Brick Store three separate times, but wish I had time to go more. The selection of taps (of which there are only a moderate number, but all are extremely well-selected) and bottles is both exceptional and mind-boggling large. My friends and I sat in the upstairs Belgian bar during our trips to the pub, which was nice as it is somewhat quieter and more intimate than the downstairs American bar. Service was excellent. Their system seems to be that all of the servers pitch in serving your table. This is fantastic, as your beers tend to arrive quickly and you benefit from different recommendations from the knowledgeable staff. The food was good - standard pub fare. The highlight of my visit, of course, was my trip down to the cellar. The Brick Store apparently has two cellars - one upstairs in the Belgian bar, another downstairs in an old bank vault. It is apparent from viewing both that this is a place that truly cares about building an extensive, quality collection of cellared beers. My mind was blown by the sheer number of rarities they have on offer. Plus, it was quite interesting to hear Lee's, their beer buyer, take on how the cellar collection is built. After viewing it, I naturally had to order something off the cellar menu, which is perhaps longer than the regular menu. It is true that there are a number of very pricy items, but there is something for every budget, especially one-offs and other limited beers. The collection also offers a good number of verticals on imperial stouts (such as Ten Fidy) and belgian ales. 10 more days would not have been enough to scratch the surface. I will definitely be back here when next I am in Georgia. Side note: the owners of the Brick Store also own Leon's just down the street. I found that, while their list of taps and bottles was obviously smaller, they nevertheless had some excellent beers on offer, including some rare items that were not at the Brick Store. Just FYI.Was this review helpful?

Beer and Brunswick I never go to Brick Store without getting a bowl of the best Brunswick Stew I've ever had. I usually get two or three beers that I can't find elsewhere. Usually, one I know I love and one that's adventurous. It's kind of pricy, but it offers an experience I haven't found at other bars, so I get what I pay for. All I wish was that I lived closer!Was this review helpful?

Good food, bad service The food and atmosphere are wonderful. Lots of options for vegetarians. But the service could step it up a bit.Was this review helpful?

There is no better place for beer in Atlanta. They always have several tasty beers I want to try and their food is pretty descent too.Was this review helpful?

Unbelievable beer selection, great pub atmosphere, fantastic all-Belgian bar upstairs, and wonderful food. I really enjoy the Volcano (Spicy Brunswick stew in a bread bowl) on cold winter nights.Was this review helpful?
