Some of our more astute readers may recall my ramblings over time about the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA. After my most recent visit there, the third for me, I believe that I'm prepared to anoint it as one of the top ten beer bars that I have visited. In fact, this club is so exclusive, I'm not sure if I have ten bars that make the list. We're talking exclusive company of (no implied order) Toronado, Monk's, Hop Devil, Red Bones, Linwood Grill, The Drafting Room, Ginger Man (Austin), Fat Heads
So, what happened this time? Well, for starters on a such a beautiful Georgia day, how does a Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen sound? Then followed up by some bigger beers of Lagunitas Hoppus Maximus, Oskar Blues Gordon, Great Divide Oak-aged Yeti Imperial Stout, and Caracole Nostradamus? I was excited to try the Gordon and it sure did not disappoint. Those not enough for you? Check out their full list.
To accompany these excellent beers and satisfy my other hunger was a decent cheese plate and an open-faced chicken salad melt. Pair that with other friendly bar patrons and bar staff (thanks, Anna!) and you have the same result I've experienced each time I visited the Brick Store.
