If you are looking for a place that is local, exceptional and off the eatin’ path, Brick Store Pub is an exciting discovery. Located right on the Square in the City of Decatur, the historic building boasts “no televisions, no neon, no obnoxious music and no major domestic beers.” Brick Store Pub has been a hub for the community since their opening in 1997. Whether you stop in during lunch or after hours, Brick Store is always lively and welcoming.
Brick Store is well known for their incredibly vast selection of regional and nationally acclaimed American craft beers as well as German, Belgian and English specialty beer. The food is also wonderful and you can’t beat the casual ambience. In fact, Brick Store has won a “Best of Atlanta” recognition for ten consecutive years for their amazing beer list and pub fare.
During spring and fall, the outdoors seating is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the weather, right on the Downtown Square. Inside, you’ll find a cozy, traditional European atmosphere with brick walls and rustic, round table seating. The large, half circle bar brings patrons together and it’s easy to strike up a conversation with friendly neighbors. The atmosphere and setting is designed to encourage conversation like traditional pubs in Europe. “Upstairs and to the left” is where you will find the Belgian Beer Bar, featuring 8 rotating draughts and over 120 Belgian/Belgian-style bottled beers.
I’ve eaten their famous burgers on several occasions and they are always delicious. They also serve a number of sandwiches including meat loaf, chicken salad and bratwurst. My favorite entrée is the Fish and Chips, which is probably their most popular selection and a must try. Other items include Shepherd’s Daughter Pie, Cornish Game Hen, Cast-Iron Pot Pie and Pierogi Primavera, among other favorites.
The clientele is diverse, from young hipsters to local residents, and everyone in between. Brick Store Pub is everything one would hope to find in a traditional pub – an incredible selection of beverages, community environment and outstanding food. If you are looking for “local flavor,” you will find it here. I always bring out-of-town visitors here for a true Decatur experience.
Brick Store Pub is located at 125 E. Court Square, Decatur, Georgia 30030. For more information, visit BrickStorePub.com or call 404-687-0990.
