Good food - some selections of pub fare, some yuppy european fare, and some southern comfort food, too. Beer selection is fantastic - not as many drafts as other big "beer" bars (like Taco Macs and Summits locations that have 100+ taps), but a decent number of taps - and lots of selection in bottles. They have an upstairs bar that is dedicated to Belgian and Belgian-style beers that has the best selection of such beers that Iíve ever come across. Prices are decent, servers are friendly, and the place is very cool inside - old loft style w/ exposed brick, rough-hewn wood, and fancy&clean bathrooms... Favorite pub in Atlanta, for sure.
The sole reason I may move to Decatur,Ga someday. Awesome atmosphere real old and cozy with brick and wood everywhere. Very crowded place in what seems to be a busy nightspot area. Probably the best tap lineup Iíve ever seen, there may have only been one or two taps Iíve actually saw before everything else Iíve never saw on tap, very solid bottle lineup some real rare stuff in there. I will be back here someday itíd be worth taking a trip just to drink here.
This place rivals any place you might choose to go get a beer, as far as atmosphere, passion and forethought of selection. It actually reminded me a lot of Monkís in Philly from the masculine wood decor to the very packed crowd all with great beer in hand.
Saw 2000 Lou Pepe Guezu, Kriek and Framboise. Enjoyed the 2000 Gueze, from a bottle and had Gonzo and Celebrator on draft and saw many others Iíd like to have tried. Didnít eat, but the food looked good and I got some first hand reports that it was solid.
When considering places like this I ask myself what kind of bar would these people have IF they were to open NEXT to an exisiting bar like say Spuyten Duyvil, Akkurat or another world class bar and I donít doubt for a second that if they could legally bring in the beers the aforementioned places can that the folks at the Brick Store would create a bar to equal either. Very nice place owned and operated by people who care.

This is one of the best places in the SE to get a beer. The pub food was excellent. The fish ní chips, humus, stew, and shepards pie are all good. Chees plates rotate and usually have excellent offerings. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Always great stuff on tap.
Nice pub. Every beer you order comes in its own glass. Very nice. Ok draft selection of West Coast and German brew. Follow the stairs on the left side of the bar to expirence the Belgian Bar. Good number of taps. HUGE number of bottles. It is almost intimidating home much beer they offer. The upstairs feels like an underground cellar. Very quaint. A must see for BEER TOURING in ATL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this place for the beer. My wife hates this place because of the food. We have fights about it. I win. Go here, get incredible beers. Stuff you wouldnít try unless you were upstairs in their finely crafted belgian style beer bar complete with exposed brick and and wood ceiling beems.
What a great place. If you like craft beer it is the place to go. On my first visit I had the Hercules IPA and a St. Bernardus, both on tap. I was on an empty stomach and donít remember my wifeís beers....or much of anything else for that matter. Awesome place.

One of the best beer bars in the world. Two floors, two bars, and every beer in its proper glass. Excellent selection of beers, what Iíve had off the menu was delicious. Better prices are found on the draft selections rather than the bottles, but thatís to be expected. Can get a little crowded, but this is a popular place. Decatur is always a fun trip, there are plenty of restaurants and shops, and everyone should check out the Dekalb Farmerís Market.
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.
Crowded on a Friday night but got a table had excellent service. The food was excellent and arrived promptly. The beer selection was great and the server was there to get what you needed. It was just crowded, trips to the restroom were an adventure but the place was great. I plan to go back just to be sure.
