(Visited 05/2013): Brickhouse Tavern is located in Newport News on Herman Melville Ave in a pedestrian plaza. There is street parking as well as lots nearby.
The inside is relatively small with booth and table seating past the entrance, and a short bar along the left.
Taps number around 20 with several macros, plus some nearby domestic craft breweries like Devils Backbone and O’Connor. Some bottles as well.
Service on a slow weekday lunch at the bar was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about their beers and attentive.
The menu at Brickhouse is pretty extensive. My colleague and I enjoyed our sandwiches.
Overall this spot is really not worth seeking out just for beer, but does have merit for having some local brews available along with decent food.
