After selling six barrel table and chair sets from the patio and then opening a curbside community soup kitchen all to help pay its employees, Decatur’s Brick Store Pub is now selling rare and vintage beers from its extensive cellar collection.
The popular, two-story beer pub, located off Decatur Square, pivoted to takeout two weeks ago after the city’s mayor ordered bars closed and prohibited dine-in service at restaurants to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the community. Brick Store Pub is known for its lengthy list of local, Belgian, and hard-to-find beers.
People interested in purchasing from the cellar collection can stop by Tuesday, March 31, and Friday, April 3, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. or purchase online from a selection of hand-picked beers on the pub’s CraftCellr page, which goes live on March 31 at 10 a.m.
The Brick Store Soup Kitchen provides free meals to those in need, no questions asked, and is open for donation-based purchases, with 100 percent of the money earned going to support the pub’s staff. Brick Store Soup Kitchen is currently open Monday through Saturday, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
