Stopped by with the Mrs. this past weekend and was glad I did. The atmosphere, service, and selection were all good. I didnít eat, but they have a limited menu, and apparently a food truck comes by one night a week as well. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.

I disagree with some of the previous raters, enough that Iíve delayed for two weeks before posting. The ambiance is nice, but not especially noteworthy. The service was a mix - sometimes fast (food delivery, first flight of beer) sometimes very slow (more beer, more appetizers), to dead slow (never returned for my payment (so I left cash....and left). Their beers are respectable, and the guest taps give other local brewers an outlet. Iíd give it another chance.

The last place I visited on my trip to Indy yesterday, and easily my favorite of the 3. The first step I took inside brought a smile to my face - while relatively small, the interior decor is beautiful. Lots of clean wood paneling and modern touches. A respectably sized bar, plenty of taps (9 house, about 7 guest), and a standing bar across from the main bar (a touch I always appreciate). Plenty of seating in the dining room, with big windows facing the street. On monday night they feature a food truck, I got a very satisfying burrito for $5 in between my 11 tasters ($2 each). I thought the house beers were above average, I particularly liked the weizenbock and DIPA. Service was pretty good, my bartenders were pretty attentive and patient for the most part, and reasonably knowledgeable, it seemed. They were more willing to offer local place recommendations too, than the guys at Crown Liqours downtown (they recommended I try Khan next time). Good selection of guest taps, 2 of the ~7 were new to me (boulevard 80 Acre and Boulder Cold Hop). Overall, I really enjoyed my stay, and will be sure to visit again when I return to Indy.

A cozy brewpub on the outskirts of Indy. It has a homey feel - itís not too big of a place, just a small bar and some tables. Nice alternative rock music playing in the background. I donít believe there were any TVs. There were 8-10 house beers, as well as 6-8 guest taps (Stone RIS, Bier Brewery, Tyranena, Old Rasputin, Flat 12, and others). The house beers were very good and plenty of interesting styles (rye IPA, berlinner weisse, foreign export stout, california common, and black IIPA, among others). Overall the beers are very well crafted. Iím not sure about the food situation - they did have a Sunday brunch offering available (just one choice) when I was there. A great stop in Indy, top notch beers.

Visited last fall. I understand that Black Acre is helping revitalize their neighborhood in Indianapolis and I can see why. Itís a comfortable pub with tasty house beer and a superb guest tap list. At the time they also carried all of the Trappist ales in bottles with the exception of Achel, which they were working on getting, and of course Westvleteren. By the numbers they had 5 taps with house beer and a dozen guest taps. Food was obtained from a food truck outside. It looked okay but we didnít order any so I canít say more. We enjoyed our chat with the knowledgeable bartender and our visit to this young brewpub. I wish them well and plan to return.

A nice start, but the place is usually overcrowded and the service is usually pretty spotty (at best). House beers are not very good (but are getting better) and the guest taps are usually pretty good. Overall though, some work is needed.

This is now one of my favorite places in Indy. The bar tender was very knowledgeable and offered to let me try the beers ordering. Tasty menu of appetizers and fancy sandwiches. Their beers are very good, and they have a nice selection of guest taps and wine. The room is a modern but warm space. Go check it out.

Easy to find location with street parking. Remodeled street shop with bar in the middle left with table all around front and outside walls. Freindly and knowledgable staff. Good selection of their own and guest taps. Hope they become more active on RateBeer with their brewery and beers.

Neighborhood brewpub/beer bar. Outstanding service and atmosphere. Tap list is extensive and their beers come on soon.
