Went to the brick store pub while on "conference duty" in Atlanta. I went by way of recommendation from a fellow beeradvocate forum member.

I cannot say how great of a recommendation this place was. Very easy to get to. It borders the square in front of the Decatur MARTA stop.

The atmosphrere is great. True pub look and feel. Chunky furniture. Shiny bar. Belgian tap room upstairs. I could go on about how much I love this place.

The service is great. Seat yourself but you have waiters always asking you if you are doing alright.

The selection is insane. Things on tap that you couldn't get just anywhere. Bud-what?

Food is a good mix of standard pub fare and food that would be well paired with the various kinds of beers served.

I had the fish and chips with the Reinsdorf Kolsch and a St Bernadus Alt 12 quadruppel.

The beers were served in exactly the right glass (who the hell has Kolsch glasses?). The food sadly puts many new england fish and chips servers to shame. Crispy fish and chips and no sog factor whatsoever.

For all of this quality you pay for it. Its not cheap but not overpriced either.

If I were building a pub, this is the blueprint.

Saw this advertised on Atlanta Eats. My wife and I went on a Friday night. Was crowded, but still had a great time. Sat in the Upstairs Belgium bar. For as big a crowd the service was great. Food was a little expensive, but was good. I would stick to the sandwiches if you are upstairs. Server was very knowledgable about the beer, and even with as busy as they were sent me two samples.

I would like to go back and actually enjoy just the beer, definitely will go back.

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.
