Step through the huge wooden door into the cool, rustic atmosphere of THE BRICK STORE PUB
in Decatur, and a rush of simple joy overpowers the tangle of everyday concerns nagging at your brain. Take a few sips of fresh-from-the-tap Spaten Marzen, sweet and smooth as glass, or sip a neat tumbler of single malt, and contentment sets in. A book, a friend or a bartender is there to keep you company, and you notice faces looking at each other, not angled up expressionless at the corner TV set. No TVs. In a bar. Truly radical.
