Heaven. I have a dream. That one day, i'll live within walking distance of the Brick Store, or at least a passable equivalent.

Atmosphere is perfect. Nice American updating of a classic British pub theme. Food is also Americanized (read: improved) versions of pub fare, with some nice additions. I had a corned beef sandwich that was very good, accompanied by a superb house salad, which they don't upcharge for if you opt for that instead of chips. Really, you can choose between chips, fries, or a top-o-the-line house salad with all sorts of gourmet toppings.

The beer selection is the best in the Southeast for a beer bar. Period. They have pretty much everything you can get in Atlanta. Similar to Green's having it all at retail. Here, you can drink it on premise in the great atmosphere, with great food, and good service, too.

We ate here just before heading back for a 2 1/2 drive to Birmingham, so i couldn't imbibe very much. I had one glass of Aventinus on tap. Beautiful. Served in apropriate Aventinus glassware, which is unheard of in Alabama. Not only do we not have Aventinus here because of the paternalistic prohibition-era laws still impeding our beer choices, but NO ONE in this state serves beer in proper glassware. It was so nice to see it done right.

This will be a critical stop for me every time i'm in Atlanta. (1,350 characters)

Wow! This place is a treasure.
Let me start by saying that I drove from Baton Rouge to Atlanta. I was hungry when I got there. I ordered the butterbean hummus. The freaking bread had sausage in it! The hummus was really good and was served with some pickled green beans and green tomatoes. Onto the beer
I started with an Allagash Victor Ale and followed with some local IPAs.
Now, let me tell you where the Brick Store exceeds other places...their cellar room(s). A smorgasbord of vintage gueuzes, lambics, stouts, wild ales and other stuff are available to purchase by the bottle. I popped a bottle of 2010 Lost Abbey 10 Commandments.
Overall, the staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. This place is a must check out. (738 characters)

The best beer selection, bar none. Just today, I had a cbs and mexican cake for brick stores' 20th anniversary. Tap selection rotates a lot, but always great beer. Highly recommend it if you can make it to Decatur while visiting Atlanta. (237 characters)

Incredible selection. A second bar of only Belgian beers, plus delicious food. The only problem is parking, but there is a paid lot fairly close. An Atlanta classic, definitely one of the best beer places I've ever been to. (226 characters)

The only downfall of this place is that if you try a beer you like it could be gone this next day due to constant rotation of taps. The level of quality beers that they have is second to none. Everything that they have is good. (227 characters)

Their Allagash Curieux tripel and Victory Hop Ranch are what I tried and paired really well with their food. Highly recommend trying their chicken pot pie and fish n' chips entrees! Check out their beer menu beforehand as there was a special beer on tap directly from the cask that night, but it sold out early in the night so get their early if you want to try that. (367 characters)

Used to live down the street from Brick store and it is still one of my favorite bars. Great selection, great vibe, great service. If you are in Decatur you must visit. (168 characters)
