"We've taken pizza and beer to a whole different level," says owner and executive pizza chef Bill Brandt, who opened this Old Town gourmet pizzeria in 1997. The menu features pizzas with a variety of specialty topping combos plus a small selection of salads. The pizza's distinctive thin crusts (crunchy on the bottom, soft in the middle) are topped with fresh vegetables, meats and seafood. Six draft beers and about 20 bottled beers cover a wide range of styles, from Trappist ales to mass-market lagers. Bricks' two rooms are bright and cheery despite the restaurant's location in the basement of an apartment building. Pop art lithographs and a pencil drawing of Jerry Garcia liven up the walls.
