After reading reviews on Beer Advoate and deciding to go here, I was really disappointed. The service was bad on all acounts - it was very hard to get and hold there attention, they were generally disinterested in being there. Pizza was acceptable, nothing to write home about and beer selection was somewhat limited. There are a lot better options in the Charlotte area for food, pizza and beer. A good option only if it is your neighbour hood pub and you can walk home.

If you are having a hard time finding it, it is at the back of the strip mall.

Stopped in the South Charlotte location for some drinks to watch the home run derby, after discovering that it was dollar 50 microbrew night that pretty much iced it.

Bright place with lots of lighting and they make a real spectacle of the "wood brick" oven, definitely powered by gas by the way. Lots of bar seating as well as dining room seating and lots of tables outside. Smoking allowed outside and inside after 10 pm.

Service was good promptly greeted and informed that it was dollar fifty beer night (O god yes more on that in a minute)

Serlection: Ok so apparently this is beer cheaper than the liquor store night. All domestic beers including micros or 1.50 cents a pint.... o yes o yes. Including, Dead Guy, Bell's oberon, TWO HEARTED ALE, Highlands gaelic ale, snpa, and several others all in all about 20 taps and not any serious crap either. Not outstanding but dollar 50 two hearted ale is a reason to be in this place all by itself.

While I wouldnt go here often, if I lived in the area I would be there probably every monday, definitely worth it for that.

LOcated in a snotty, yuppy-infested part of town, stopped by for a few beers w/ a coworker. I forget what night we were there, but a lot of the beers were only $2 a pint; Highland Oatmeal Porter, Rogue Dead Guy, Leiney Sunset Wheat, and Flying Dog Pale Ale. I don't recall what else they had on tap, maybe a few good options. Atmosphere and service are very average of less. Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time. The food is OK, nothing spectacular with one exception...the pizza w/ pears, caramelized onions, goat cheese and walnuts was un-fucking-believable.Mmmm. I've since stolen that recipe and make a better version at home. Overall I would never consider this a beer destination but worth stopping by on $2 beer nite.

Stopped in here before I went over to Brawleys and Total Wine one day cause, well I was hungry and it was close by. Pretty standard, well they are a chain afterall so I don't know how much more I was expecting but it was actually pretty decent and the prices were cheaper then the last time I had been around. Had highland, duck rabbit, cottonwood, SA, and a couple rogues that I noticed. Food was good, as it usually is and you cant beat a couple brews, lunch, and getting out of there in under 20 bucks. I mean this is not the typle of place you are gonna travel to get to, but if you are in the area you could od much worse. It definitely has a quality selection and is very affordable, and besides Mike recommends it.

Stopped in here today for a bite to eat and a couple of beers. One really good sandwich and four beers later (and some water) I had to leave to get to my seminar. The place was recommended to me by the owner of Brawley's this afternoon. I was going to head to the Flying Saucer, but this place was much closer as he had said. Is it the Saucer? No, but it's not bad at all. They have about 20 taps. I saw Highland, Rogue, SN, Brooklyn, SA, and others. The service wasn't extremely knowledgeable, but was very good. They also had some Bell's in bottles. A good sandwich and four good beers for $21...I'll take it. I will stop back here next time I find myself in this part of Charlotte.

A little hidden in the back of the shopping center, but I like the atmosphere, especially the patio out front. It's a great place for a pizza and a couple of brews on a weekend afternoon.

Pizzas are thin crust, use high quality ingredients, not heavy on sauce or cheese, and are quite tasty. They have about 12-15 beers on tap with a good mix of craft, macros, and a couple you don't see just anywhere. They usually carry one or two from Highland Brewing in Asheville. I usually drink Rogue Dead Guy when I am there, but had a pint of DFH 90 minute the one time I saw it there as well.

Service is hit-or-miss depending on the server but I have had good experiences 90% of the time.

Brixx - Foxcroft is actually located behind a Pizza Hut on Fairview so if you are looking for it, look for the Piza Hut and a "certain" coffee shop out front of the small shopping center. Brixx is sort of hidden in the back. There is a 10 table front patio and inside plenty of booths and tables to the left or right. I bellied right to the bar over looking the taps and flames from the brick ovens. Brixx is just a basic neat style pizzaria that has a restaurant feel overall.

My server couldn't really care less even though there was only one lady at the bar. He did his job and nothing more, but had that "Whadda ya want?" style that that is uncomfortable.

The spicy shrimp pizza is $8 for a 10" pie which really is 12". Thin crust and skimpy on the sauce. Ok I guess.

Beers were local Highlander IPA, Pale ale, NewCastle Brown, DogFish Head 90 minute, SNPA, Guinness, and a few others. About 12 beers over all. $2.50 for Newcastle pints.

I'd go back if beer was not the determining idea. If so, way better places like any Mellow Mushroom. Plus I am not a fan of thin crust. Very thin.

Could you take your Mother here? Sure. It is a chain and a restaurant first. Not bad. Fun joint and hey, DogFish Head 90 minute!!???

Last swigs: Brixx isn't coming across as a beer bar, but a pizzeria first and foremost.
