Large draft list with beers from around the country and from Europe, mainly Belgium. Just two local brews, but plenty more local stuff in their large bottle list. But the highlight here is the vintage bottle list, holy cow! BFMs going back to 2005, a good chunk of the Terrapin Side Projects, and even De Cam Oude Geuze. Service was a bit slow even though it was not a busy Sunday mid-afternoon, and servers seemed friendlier to the regulars, but maybe that was just me. Anyway, worth a try just for that vintage list.

God I wish this place was down the street from me. If I had a teleporter I would program the Brick Store as a preset. Atmospheric yet casual, serious enough for geeks yet accessible enough for ordinary humans, and has thoughtful menu items for people who like food. Cheese place is all local cheese. A solid kitchen (the "Volcano" is the specialty) but lacking the pretentiousness of a yuppie gastropub. Dark hardwood floors and furnishings and custom stained glass add unbeatable character and ambiance. The split-level open design allows voices carry without becoming loud. No smoking. Great for rating beer. The downstairs is more like a beer bar bistro with an everyman vibe, the upstairs bar has the Belgian taps and more of a pub/beer bar environment. Owners and barkeeps are quality people. The tap and bottle selection change regularly and are great. I love this place.

I have a group of friends who rave about this place, so Iíve made the venture a couple times when in town on business. Itís a sturdy beer-oriented bar with a relatively small but sturdy lineup of rotating taps. The food is good, too. My biggest complaint is the difficult parking situation here, and with the typical American lack of good public transportation options, Iím dissuaded from more regular visits when in ATL.

Brick Store is the shit. Eat a volcano. Sit upstairs in the Belgian bar. Get to know the staff and owners because they often have cool beer thatís not on the menu. Spend as much time as you can here, itís a top-class beer bar full value for the praise heaped upon it.

holy crap. This place is completely awesome. The most crucial pub to visit in Atlanta. Every drink comes served in appropriate glassware and the food, though mostly pub fare, comes served in a professional arrangement and is very delectable. The Belgian bar upstairs was the last straw, I didnít even know how to react to that. Sometimes I just dream about being at the Brick Store and wake up depressed when Iím not.

A very nice pub in a good neighbourhood. Seats outside and lots inside. Clean and decently appointed wood seats. Very good selection of beer, particular Belgians, though most are available at Greenís, the best local store. Service is good, but the staff outside of bartender do not know their beer, however they do have the patience to ask. Much better than average bar. Had a good time, courtesy of impromtu Beer Advocate sharing with dano213, smchnsgy, blitz134. Great place to meet in late Northeastís winter, when itís clearly spring in Atlanta. --

Visited on a sunny Wednesday afternoon in the spring. Nice soft breeze blowing, perfect day for a pint outside. Along with a couple of beers, also enjoyed some appetizers. Very nice vibe, good crown, nice friendly servers - though were really in no hurry to serve. I walked in to use the bathroom, and the interior has a really welcoming pub feel to it. If I was a local, this would certainly be a local. I was not totally blown away by the beer list, but it was really thorough. For all my local friends, sorry for the Lege - had about 2 hours between meetings and the flight.

The owners of the pub write how they visited Kulminator and had a life changing experience and wanted to re-create that experience back in the states. I similarly visited Kulminator and Akkurat around the same time and had the same idea, how cool would it be to have a bar with a true vintage list. The answer is not very cool in America, especially when executed like this. You can make this work overseas because you can basically sell any beer you want, from any distribution source, hold onto to them forever, and have greater access to harder to find lambics that deserve to be aged. In America, we lack the depth of these beers and thus the result is Brick Store, where 99% of the beers being aged either suck, shouldnít be aged more than a year at most, or so widely distributed they make the whole point of cellaring moot because you can do it at home with more ease and bang for your buck. Who wants a 2012 Oude Tart, or a vertical of Moohoo, or any of the other several weak Terrapin or Sweetwater beers. Yes, they have some KBS, an absurdly priced CBS, and a little Cantillon. The rest of the list just doesnít cut it. If youíre going to do this concept do it, age 10 plus years or chimay, westmalle, Rochefort, have sick BCS veritcals, more drie than 3 varietes, several years of older viscosity. There are some US beers to do this concept with, shorten the depth of your cellar and stick to beers that matter. Enough railing on this poor execution. There are other areas of need. The draft list only had 8 semi local beers, (NC, SC, GA). The rest were commonly distributed beers. 1 beer and you leave disappointing. I did like the atmosphere of the place, but I was gone in 30 minutes.
