Overall: This is a place anyone reading this should go out of their way to visit. I speak from experience. I traveled 700 miles out of my way to visit it and I was not dissapointed.
Atmosphere. A slice of heaven in that there is a downstairs of Craft/German/English taps and the awesome "Belgian Room" upstairs. Absolutely love the concept and the reality of this place.
Quality. Cannot be improved upon. Correct (often labeled!) glassware and cleanly presentation make this world class.
Service. Also stellar. We "put our name in" and were told that it would be a 45 minute wait. About 42 minutes later the "Hostess" (wearing a shirt which said "Hostess" by the way) found us, repeated the name that we had given her and kindly suggested that we pay our bar tab (if any) and that "your table is ready whenever you are." The waitress was patient and all bartenders were knowledgable and kind. Even the kitchen staff were positive and kind.
Selection. Legendary. About 12 Belgian taps and 20 other taps along with a dizzying amount of bottles. This place could keep you busy for months working your way through their lists.
Food. Maybe the best part (is that even possible?) My brother in law Steven and I got the prerogi dinner and my wife got a chicken salad sandwich. All three entrees were great. We got the pretzels with mustard sauce and those were hot and delicious.
Value. We paid for our beer seperately but the food (3 entrees and the pretzels) were an amazingly low $28.28. I think that it is low and therefore very affordable. They could easily have charged something like $40 for all of that.
Notes: Learned about this place on BA and I thank any of you reading this for suggesting/encouraging me to go to this place. My highest praise is due.

Just got back from the Brick Store Pub. Probably my favorite Beer Bar in Atlanta, and possibly anywhere. Very cool place. The atmosphere is "old European" pub-esque. The service is friendly, if not a little on the slow side. The nice part is that they rent in any hurry to get you out, which I really appreciate.
Their beer list is second to none. Their cellar contains a variety of Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, Fantome, just to name a few. I had a superb 2008 Stille Nacht. I didn't see a lot that they didn't have.
The earlier, dinner crowd, was mid thirties and older. As the evening moved along, the crowd go younger, but wasn't "out of control".
Prices were inline with any beer bar. Yeah...if you want Cantillon, expect to pay premium. No surprise there, but the prices were in line, if not a hair better than other places I've been to.
Try it..you'll like it!
