I assume it is an English idiom because I see nothing unusual about it.

To me it means you are really great because you are reliable, helpful,
and solid.

What you need to think of here is a house made of brick. The brick is
tough, and supports the house....

Sorry for continuing this off topic thread....

There is a similar sounding word which is a lot ruder, but it doesn't have 
a b in it.
