In this episode we meet with Dave Blanchard, co-owner, of the Brick Store Pub

In December of 2008 the Brick Store Pub was named the #2 Best Beer Bar on the Planet Earth, by Beer Advocate Magazine.  It is pretty easy to see why this Beer Bar is a favorite of many.  From the casual and conversation centered atmosphere (no TV’s or blaring music) to the incredible selection of unique and interesting beers to a competent staff which is well educated about the beers – Brick Store Pub truly stands out in the crowd. Add all of that to a solid menu of tasty food and you have a winner.

In this first episode from Brick Store (we seperated out our tour of their cellar – it is worthy of its own episode) we talk with co-owner Dave Blanchard about the restaurant and pub and how they played an integral part in converting Georgia into a haven for beer lovers and take a look around the pub and restaurant.

Be sure to keep an eye on our site (or subscribe, or follow us on Twitter) for part 2 of this episode where we head downstairs with Lee Dickson (beer manager) on an exclusive tour of their beer cellar.

If you are in the Atlanta area be sure to check out The Brick Store Pub.   It’s just an easy train ride to Decatur, the train leaves you just about a block away from the Pub.

    Great video, guys. I feel very fortunate to live a mile from this place and I sing the BSP’s praises to anyone within earshot when I get the chance. Wished I could have been in town when you guys were here.

    Keep up the great work you do with this site. Cheers!

    Honestly I like the food better at The Porter or Fado’s. I like to have a good combination of both food and beer personally.
