Brick Store has been around for more than two decades, which makes it the eminence grise of Decatur Square bars. Like many of the beers it cellars, the place only gets better with age. The list of offerings is thicker than a midsize city’s phonebook, and local brewers know they’ve arrived when they land one of the 33 taps. If you can’t find a stool at the horseshoe bar downstairs, check out the Belgian bar upstairs. Mercifully, there’s not a TV in the place. 125 East Court Square, Decatur, 404-687-0090, brickstorepub.com
