Over the decade and a half of its existence, Brick Store Pub has grown from a pioneering Decatur business to a defining fixture on the city’s square and a major mecca for craft beer pilgrims from all over the world.
“We’re gonna make a T-shirt, for sure,” Tom Moore said one day sitting at a table at the pub, as his Brick Store partners, Dave Blanchard and Mike Gallagher, mirrored sly smiles.
“That’s a bit of a joke,” Moore explained.
New commemorative T-shirts or not, BSP, which opened June 27, 1997, will mark its 15th anniversary over seven days of memory-making celebrations, beginning June 24 with a fundraiser for the DeKalb History Center and the unveiling of a historic piece of local art.
The remainder of the week will bring out special anniversary dishes each night, created by chef friends from Decatur and beyond, including Drew Belline of No. 246, Billy Allin of Cakes & Ale and Ryan Smith of Empire State South.
