The Brickstore Pub in Decatur is one of my and Amber’s favorite places to eat. Amber usually gets a chicken salad sandwich and a side salad, and I usually get the penne pomodoro with andoville sausage, though I’ve had nearly everything on the menu. Most of the food is good, some of it is great, and the only thing I’ve had which I would say is bad is the turkey burger. Avoid that and you should be fine.
More importantly, it’s the best place in metro Atlanta to sample craft beers. Watch the video below about the pub’s new cellaring program and it should be easy for you to see why:
If you’re not a beer nerd (and I don’t qualify as a beer nerd, though I do try to look for an IPA I’ve never tried before whenever I go somewhere with an extensive beer menu), you might not have been aware that some beers are designed to be aged as wines are. The Brickstore Pub is taking over space in the basement of an adjacent bank to age those types of beers.
In the video, they discuss plans to have invite-only beer tastings to determine when the beers being aged are ready for public consumption. The space looks like it will be really cool for that purpose. I especially loved the mechanism to let air in the bank vault. Maybe Tony can get invited to test some beers out. Me, I am mostly useful for describing shitty beer.
