I visit this Brixx as much as possible when I'm in Greensboro, especially if they have specials! The beer selection is great, and the bartender is very knowledgeable! Also I just found out he is a home brewer, so even though I don't like sports we always have something to talk about.
This place has very high ceilings and is pretty small except for the patio which wasn't open because of the rain. The bar area and kitchen aren't big but both looked super clean. My only complaint was even when the sun had gone down it was still super bright in there!
I had a roast beef sandwich, it was pretty good. It came with some blue chips, they left something to be desired, but all and all a very good meal. They had several new beers this time, even a couple of taps I had never heard of. Usually I get one of their ESBs but there were none to be found! The bartender let me try a couple of different samples before I decided on an amazing stout, a Scottish ale, and a very hoppy Bells 2 hearted. It seemed to be the favorite of several others at the bar.
They had coasters for a couple of beers I wanted to try, but they didn't carry those beers, also they didn't have many imports despite the fact they have like 30 taps. The selection was much wider than I remember it being, and pretty much any kind of beer you can think of (except an ESB!, or porter!) is on tap. They even had the new Budwieser American Ale in bottle...and no I didn't try one! The bartender (who seems to be there nearly every time I visit) said nobody had ordered the American Ale yet, and they have had it for over a week!
No worries about the lack of imports there are plenty of great beers who are owned by Americans here in America! But I do hope this recession doesn't keep bars from getting great import beers! Either way this is the best selection in Greensboro.
My beers were in the 4$ range and the sandwich was less than 10$. The staff is an aesthetically pleasing and friendly one. Seems to be about the same people working when I come in, and I have been coming here for years. I love it!

Family friendly - which is nice because I visited with my wife and daughter after her work's "children's xmas party." There were a number of other tables in the restaurant with children at them though I do have to note that all of the children were very well behaved. The restaurant has a nice energy to it with a respectable amount of background noise which does not interfere with conversation.
Beers were served at proper temperature and the bottles came with a pint glass (though I was pleased to be given a room temperature pint glass which the waitress apologized for). Since I poured from the bottle myself it was a good poor. The APA I ordered was quite fresh tasting.
The service was attentive and pleasant, not sure about the amount of craft beer knowledge that our server had but once I saw the $3.50 bottles I had no problem making my own suggestions.
As for selection, they had about 20-25 beers on tap as well as 25 bottles. There were a lot of seasonal beers on tap including Sierra Nevada Celebration, Smuttynose Winter, and Southern Tier 2Xmas. The selection was almost 100% craft with quite a few NC breweries featured. When I was there, they had about 5 Lagunitas bottles available as well.
I really enjoy the pizzas and salads at Brixx - I have been going to different restaurants over the years and it was a place that I missed when I lived in the greater NYC area (though there is plenty of great pizza places there). The pizza is on a very thin crust, barely more than a flatbread and the salads are very good.
As for the value, the prices on the menu seemed reasonable and in line with other places in the area but the specials were really good - all Sierra Nevada drafts $3 for December and $3.50 bottle on Thursdays (including a bunch from Lagunitas and Founders). They were also offering a 3 course mini-beer dinner for $21 as well on the night I visited.

Brixx features a lot of great beers on tap, and will often have specials on domestic beers. They do run out fairly frequently on days with the better specials but there are always options.
Food is excellent and after 10 pm, its buy one get one free for apps and pizzas. Only complaint is that it can be quite a bit of time between server trips to the table, so get all your drinks in at once or go thirsty.
There are wine and beer dinners once every other month or so. Be sure to look into their MBA program to earn free gifts and free food!

went quite a while back before I even drank beer, had heard they had good pizza... all I remember was it was quite a pricey pizza and it took FOREVER! to get it... from sitting beside the bar I remember a huge selection, I believe they now claim over 27taps... noticed several locals, (i didn't drink but I was interested haha) nice staff was friendly and attentive, and food was good, pizza was great! other than taking so long... had that great wood fired taste with some loose flour on the hand tossed crust. been tryin to get back after church someday because its close by. good atmosphere and good seating.

Stopped in here quite some time back to grab some food prior to hitting up some bars with an old friend that night. Been to the one in Greenville quite a few times, so I knew what to expect. Upon walking in I noticed that there was a lot more seating in this location than the one we have in Greenville. Also, the bar was much larger as well. Took a seat at the bar and helped myself to their sampler rack and a small pizza. There was a huge local influence on their beer selection here which I always like to see. Food is always great at just about every Brixx I have visited. Definitely a great place to stop in to grab a bite to eat and a brew or two with friends or the family.

We used to have one of these in Florida and I frequent the one in Greenville quite often so I knew just what to expect. Nice twelve inch pizzas with a decent, if not mainstream selection. Still though it could be worse, The taps they had Stella, Sam Adams, a youngs, were ok, but nothing to really alright home about, Still if you are going to go out for lunch somewhere this is a pretty good place. In and out quicly and easily without much effort. A nice place to eat, but there are better places to drink for sure.

Stopped here for lunch when I was in the area today. I was by myself, so I sat at the bar. The server was very nice and helpful. I ordered and my food arrived very promptly. Their tap selection was not as great as I was anticipating. From the reviews of this place, I was expecting some taps that were no where else in the area. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Everything on the list, I had seen at other places around the area. I got the Bell's Two-Hearted in a room temp. pint glass. Hurray! As always, their food is stellar. This time around I got the BBQ Chicken Pizza, and it was great. Not a bad place to get some food and good beer, just don't expect to be blown away.

This is one of my all-time favorite spots in Greensboro and though I don't live there anymore, I always try to stop in if I'm in town. They have one of the better selections of craft beers in town. A good assortment of imports, domestics and even a few locals that are harder to find elsewhere and they're all on tap. Their stock is constantly changing so you're usually guaranteed something different every time you go in and they typically have something on special that's not listed on their menu so make sure to ask. They also usually have at least a couple of seasonal beers to choose from. On top of that the food is great and they do 2 for 1 pizzas after 10 and beer specials on Monday and Thursday. I think Monday is reduced price micros and Thursday is imports.
The down side is that if you don't go on a special night the beer seems a little pricey (around 5 bucks or more a glass). You can get some stuff on the cheap but overall I think you pay a little more than necessary. Also, they sometimes run out of beers which can be annoying. The other thing is the beer is served really cold to the point where sometimes there are ice chips floating in the top of the glass. Granted I can wait for it to warm a little but it's still kind of irritating and I'm impatient and thirsty.
The atmosphere is decent except when Monday Night Football is on when it can get kind of annoying and it can be smoky sometimes. The patio area outside is pretty relaxed and is usually nice for conversation when it's warm. All in all it's a good place to meet with a bunch of people late at night for beer and pizza and the few minor flaws are outweighed by the good qualities.

We have been to Brixx several times and have never been disappointed. They typically have a wide variety of beers on tap which is always a plus. They have a beer card program where you can get free stuff for trying all the beers. The only problem is they never have all of the beers on the card so you constantly have to find substitutes. Not a big deal. The pizza is very solid and the beer is very good. I would recommend this to anyone looking for good beer, good pizza and a laid back atmosphere.
