Chef Rian Tittle

Chef Rian Tittle has been cooking and creating delicious meals for Brick Store Pub for 16 years.  8-10 years ago, Brick Store was serving more traditional pub fare.  Now, Brick Store specialized in southern cuisine, to fit the culture of Decatur that surrounds them.  All of the meat prepared is fresh and in house.  Chef Tittle and others from Brick Store recently participated in Smoke and Glory, a rib cook off competition.  Chef Tittle put together smoked spare ribs with a tangy, mustard based barbecue sauce, then finished with a creamy apple slaw.  At Brick Store, the chefs use their fresh and flavorful meat to their advantage, as the favorites at the pub are smoked sausages and some of the best burgers around.

The food and the Belgian house beers are certainty enough to keep people coming back, but according to Chef Tittle, having a career at the pub is like no other.  The managers are subrickstore-1pportive and give the chefs room to grow and to be creative with their dishes.  This is why Brick Store cannot be compared with any other pub.  Chefs who the have freedom to create their own dishes, make for a fantastic atmosphere.  Come visit Brick Store and see what they have to offer!  The Belgian Beer Bar is open for reservations for private events, which can be made on their website or by phone.
