Just excellent. I've been twice, and can't wait to return. The staff is incredibly knowledgable, unfortunately the place can just get too busy for them to be able to talk. The upstairs atmosphere is really cool, and their food is solid. Not anything that is a culinary masterpiece, but they have sufficiently mastered bar food.

Located in downtown Decatur, this has become a destination for local beer aficionados as well as a local hangout. This makes the locale often very crowded, as well as making parking difficult to find. Prices, while not cheap, are about what you should expect to pay for the quality of the offerings. All the beers are served in the appropriate glassware, usually branded from the brewery, a feature I have found nowhere else. Food is along the lines of traditional English pub fare dressed up, but the main attraction is the beer and the atmosphere, not the food. If you love up-and-coming downtown areas, with quality libations, this is a good place to chill, if you don't mind being forced to rub elbows with everyone else who shares your taste.

Just moved to Atlanta this week, and from what I've seen online, I knew to head to BSP as soon as I could for a bite and a drink. Today happened to be Christmas in July, so got to sample some vintage Delirium Noel, and some Bruery 3 French Hens. The pub has great prices on beers, most of the drafts they have at the downstairs bar run less than $6, which is a pretty damn good price. Ordered some food while I was there, started off with the popcorn, and I must say it was damn tasty. Then I got the Fish and Chips, and I must say they were also damn good. The environment of the pub is very unique and very awesome. Will return very soon, thinking this may become my go-to.

I love BSP so I might be a little biased. Not the most taps in the Atlanta area, but certainly the most interesting. On my last visit they had two IIPA and two Imperial Stouts on tap. They always have St. Bernardus Abt. 12, Guinness, Weihenstephan Hefeweissbier, and Well's Bombardier on draft and the other 20-something lines are a toss-up. The upstairs bar is all Belgian and tends to have something I've never heard of. The bottle selection is excellent, but I never resort to it since I'm always entertained by the draft selection. Usually beers run 5-8 dollars (average 6) for the appropriate sized glass (Pint/Snifter). The food is also quite good for a pub, may I suggest the Volcano? Service can be a little lacking on a Friday night, but that's simply because they are so swamped. When less busy, the staff is full of helpful suggestions and has rarely steered me wrong. In all, an excellent place to enjoy beer.

Visited the Brick Store on 4/6/2012. I have to say that I really enjoyed the vibe on this place. A somewhat eclectic crowd - patrons of all ages and even some families. I sat at the bar on the first floor. I was disappointed that the beer I wanted to try had kicked (Wild Heaven Let There Be Light), but was also quite happy to try DFH Noble Rot on-draft. All beers were served in the appropriate glassware and more often than not, in glassware from the actual brewer. Draft prices were extremely reasonable in my opinion and serving sizes were spot on for the various styles on the menu. Fast and friendly service (our bartender was really hustling the whole time we were there) and the food was really quite good and reasonably priced. I had the Brat and my friend had the fish and chips - both were excellent and well sized. I did venture up to the Belgian Bar which was way cool - lots of wood and very monastery-esque. Despite being on the second floor, I felt like I was in a cloister - lots of rustic wood and somewhat dim. If I were to hang out at night for a few, this would be the place I would want to be. The taplist wasn't crazy by any means, but the variety and quality of the selections were very good. The ambience, quality, pricing and overall vibe make this place a must visit if you in the metro Atlanta area. A really top notch establishment with lots of nice little nuances from the leather covered menus to the local artists displaying their work. One of the finer beer-centric establishments I've had the opportunity to visit thus far.

Love this place! They have a great beer selection, but sometimes they don't have anything I'm looking for. Despite always being crowded and hardly ever have anywhere to stand or sit, the atmosphere is nice. Something has to be said for a place that is always packed!
The food here is great! I haven't had anything yet that wasn't very tasty!
I absolutely love their cellar! I hope one day I can have one remotely that size.
My girlfriend and I love to come here with friends when we are in Atlanta for the weekend. It's definitely our go to place when we want to get a little dressed up and we aren't looking for a game on tv.

Great relaxed Pub atmosphere. Straight out of the early 20th century with no electonics, neon or TV's. Stairs to the upstairs loft overlooks the first floor. Two other back rooms with bar.
Menu is pub food but not stuff out of a box. I had the Chicken Pot Pie, it was done in a small iron pan and 100% "home made". largely sandwich fare. Appetizer of Pierogies in carmelized butter and pecans was excellent for this lifetime patron from Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Pricing is moderate.
Excellent customer service culture is evident with every service person you have contact with.
I, of course was looking forward to something off their great beer selection, and I wasn't disappointed. I spent some time convincing my wfe and neighbor that they could also get a good wine. Both are Chardanay lovers. The Brick store had a single selection of Chard, it was 6:00 pm and they were out of it. That was a bummer.
Also, our appetizer order was lost, so the wait was long. Then they were already out of the soft pretzel appetizers that we ordered with the pierogies.
This would have been a perfect 5 if:
They had the wine (at 6:00pm that was frankly unacceptable). Being out of the pretzels was less critical but again, that should not happen as early as the six O'clock hour.
I would also encourage them to get a second Chard in their selection for those who like an Oaky Chard.

This is easily the best pub I've ever been. I live in Decatur, and I go when I have time, but I wish I could go everyday. The service is fantastic and to say that the staff is knowledgeable is an understatement. The food is simple but tasty and very affordable. But the best thing about Brick Store is the selection. Like others have said, it's vast and their belgian bar is impeccable. It gets super crowded and busy on weekends, so I try to to go on weeknights. It's a little loud at times but otherwise I have no complaints. Seriously, this is the best pub ever.

Finally made it to this mecca of pubs and boy am I glad I did. The atmosphere was phenomenal with a good time among friends vibe. Beer is the emphasis and what a selection! The leather clad beer menu is just an indicator. 25 taps and extensive bottle selection are almost overwhelming. The staff is friendly and helpful. Service was quick although we had to wait 50 minutes for a table. We made the best of it and hung out in the little alcove upstairs by the cellar. Treasure trove is what that should be called. The food was solid good pub fare. I thoroughly enjoyed my first of what I hope will be many trips to the Brickstore, Beer nirvana.

What a place, where to start. The Brick Store has without question, one of the best bars around. The downstairs is all right, but the upstairs Belgian Bar is fantastic. It might be the single best place to enjoy a beer in the city. The cellar upstairs is truly awesome, kinda makes you want to camp out in there for a few hours and stare. The decor and atmosphere are both top notch. When its packed upstairs, you feel like you're in an old world bar with low ceilings, and cozy surroundings. A definite must visit for all beer fans.
