How lucky am I that one of the best beer bars in the world is a short bike ride from my house? The Brick Store is beautiful and the beer list is top notch. The Belgian Bar upstairs cannot be missed - reminds me of Europe, but with a much better selection than most of the European bars Iíve been in! Iím vegetarian and the food selection for me is unmatched by any other beer bar, and very inexpensive. The service is also unbeatable: you donít just have one server; any server passing by who sees your empty glass will ask if youíre in need of a refill! Definitely one of the top beer bars in the world, along with the Porter. Who would think Atlanta would have such a great beer scene?!

Great ambiance, great service, great food, and decent beer. Most of the taps were taken up with the Beer Camp release so I can only imagine what the real lineup is usually like. The server was friendly and talked about each beer they had with passion. Food was spectacular. Pricing was not out of line.

Visited on a recent trip to Atlanta. Located in Decatur about 6 miles East of Atlanta Downtown. Nice location in heart of this small suburb. The bar ambiance and setup were the typical "pub" look and feel. They had about 25 taps which were a decent selection however there were only a handful of locals to choose from. With Terrapin and Sweetwater that are well distributed outside of Atlanta, you canít even get one on tap unless you go to the breweries. Typical Belgian styles for many of the beers which is a great concept but many are already doing it and we have enough good beer of our own in local markets to have to push the "Belgian" concept. Extensive beer list that had a lot of "vintage" beers but who wants a 7 year World Wide Stout as what you are seeking as your vintage beers. They did have some cellar worthy beers but they were over priced that arenít affordable for your typical beer nerd but ones who just have money to blow. The prices of the drafts and general bottle list seemed reasonable and food was being enjoyed by many (didnít eat here) but overall doesnít live up to its rating by my standards. The location and atmosphere were great but not worth the 6 mile taxi ride outside the city with Porter Beer bar within the downtown area, it will suit your needs just fine. However, if you find yourself in Decatur its worth a visit to form your own opinion.

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.

Nice Irish meets Belgian pub feel with lots of wood, slightly cramped spacing. Great service, quick and knowledgeable, sometimes did seem a bit pretentious though. Amazing selection on tap and in bottles; cellar was impressive, just too overpriced for me. Food was great, upscale pub fare. DEcent prices for the area, but you can definitely rack up a big bill quickly. Rightfully deserves to be one of the best beer bars in the country.

This place rocks! Stopped in with TBS for a beer and an app, and was thoroughly impressed. The atmosphere was incredible (very Belgian-esque), and the beer list was incredible (especially their cellar; just be ready to get your wallet out for vintage stuff). Service was good too. I had a soft pretzel and the spicy mustarx was awesome, but I donít feel itís enough to warrant a food review. They do have food though. A must stop.

Amazing place with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Belgian bar upstairs is awesome. Great cellar list, very good bottle selection, and a vibrant tap list.

A wonderful place in Decatur for craft beer. They have a really large selection and several great beers on tap. Their menu seems to change often, which gives you plenty of reason to make return visits. Their food is also excellent! I highly recommend this place.

Absolutely love this place. So much to choose from. The staff was very knowledgable. Brought tons of beers to the table to sample. Could tell you any detail about any beer on the menu. Love the rustic decor. Food was good not much to choose from though. If this place was closer to home I would be there everyday!
