GREAT food to go w/ a VAST selection of beers, including a wide selection of Belgians. Great rotation on taps, and great special events like casks, etc. The food could use a little bit more of a selection than just "meat and beer," otherwise would be a great date place for ladies that enjoy world beers. Have had unknowledgeable servers in the past, but generally very helpful. Menu is also very descriptive and thorough.
Plenty of seating for dining. 20 or so spots at the bar. Selection is not the biguest, but incredibly good. Food was incredible as well. Service was professional and efficient. Upstairs has a whole other bar and dining area. Feels like a good place to hide.
A great beer bar with a nice cellar feel. A few rooms to the place with lots of brick and dark wood. Place can be a bit tight. Service is very good and staff is well versed in beer. Tap list is strong (especially for Belgians) with a few other taps and a great bottle selection. Food is quite solid and prices arenít bad either. One of the better beer bars Iíve been to.
Very cool place in Decatur. Gorgeous, roomy place, really the antithesis of Porter in this sense; big huge room is the main bar, with a small, more cozy (Belgian oriented?) second bar up the stairs. A bit Southern hipster, with art skateboards and such on the walls, but killer list, food looked legit... not much to complain about. Good things.
Visited 03/11/15. This place left me scratching my head a bit. The ambiance is warm and inviting. Brick Storeís housed in a tastefully restored brick building with handsome wood features. The barís split over two levels and feels quite spacious and airy. The beer menu and service let this place down a bit. The draft selections went pretty light on locals. Tasty but ubiquitous stuff like Sculpin dominated the taps. The bottle list wasnít particularly impressive. Maybe they keep all their cool stuff off the menu for regulars. My bartender was pretty transaction-focused and impatient. Food was decent but not outstanding. Overall, this place has great bones, but I was expecting more from a place with a top 50 ranking. Brick Storeís good, not great.
really great space in a trendy neighborhood. Large downstairs area with a u shaped bar and tables. The decor is really nice with lots of wood. As you climb the stairs, you see another bar area that is smaller and more intimate, again with lots of hard wood. Take a look into their beer cellar on the top floor through the window ... Pretty impressive. Their vintage beer list is expansive and definitely the best Iíve seen in the states. I ordered a 2009 founders old curmudgeon and loved it. It was served in a founders tulip with the empty bottle to accompany it. They had lots of good stuff on tap both upstairs and downstairs and if I lived around here, I would have explored that more. Being that I was only there for a short period of time, it was all about the vintage list. Service was friendly and quick.
