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.

I've been to a lot of amazing pubs on this planet, and this one places in the upper echelon.

First, the beer selection rotates quickly, and through local and far away providers. There are large open spaces and alcoves and great bar seating to satisfy a wide swath of the intro/extro-vert spectrum. The beer "cellar", an upstairs climate controlled room, would leave even the casual beer adventurer with a slack jaw. The selection of bottles is nothing short of exciting.

And, not resting on their ample hop-infused laurels, they serve scrumptious, seasonal, inspired fare. And their servers are both knowledgeable and work as a collective.

This is one of the finest establishments I've had the privilege of visiting.
