I will start off by saying parking is not that big of a problem. Anyone who complains about having to put change in a meter and walk 50 yards (at most) is lazy and worthless. The Brick Store Pub is a decent place to grab a drink. The ambiance is decent; it has a nice old tavern feel to it. The problem with that is the place can get pretty crowded. My friends and I were certainly fortunate to find a seat. Another problem with Brick Store Pub, this place is flooded with yuppies. I could only handle this place once as far as getting used to the crowd. Let's face it, this place, for many of you reading my review, is the place to ""be seen."" I think this place has been put on a pedestal! The beer prices are way out of line! The common beers are in the ""average"" price range, but the ""specialty"" beers are twice as much as they would be in stores. Don't believe me? A lot of the ""rare"" beers can be purchased at Greens, Jax, and/or Total Wine liqour stores. For instance, a Dogfish Head Black and Blue, a seasonal fruit beer, was around $24. That is insane, considering the beer can be purchased at anyone of the listed liquor stores for $11 or $12 dollars. Don't take advantage of your patrons by charging them twice as much for a ""rare"" beer. If your business angle is to serve rare beers for people to try and in some cases experience, don't make is unreasonably expensive. Maybe I am making an argument out of nothing, but to an avid beer lover and drinker that is taking advantage of people. The waiters also make horrible suggestions when it comes to beer. They often try to talk you into buying beer that is complete garbage, they don't even say ""well what do you look for in a beer."" They just say ""well I love the ...."" I didn't ask you what you like, I asked you what you would think that I like. I think this place is decent, but I could never call myself a regular at a place like this. To pompous for being a bar and get a grip on the prices.
Pros: Great beer selection, too crowded
Cons: Beer prices can be ridiculous, yuppie hang out
