Stopped in a Saturday Afternoon. Great, classic brewpub look with excellent old school two corner bar, only drawback was limited at bar seating. Had a couple appetizers with my beer and they were very good. They normally have two cask ales going, had the ESB, excellent, classic English Pub stuff!

Finally got a chance to go to the Indy granddaddy of craft beer. Food is ok. Most of the beers hovered around average. Overall, given many Indy beer nerds calls to visit Broad Ripple, I was not impressed. Itís fine. But not stellar.

Kind of a strange little place, but not terrible overall. The atmosphere inside is a bit dark and mellow. It has sort of an old/rustic feel to it. Very quiet and laid-back (at least it was when I was there.) I was disappointed that the brewery wasnít very visible. I like to be able to see the tanks and brewhouse, but I could barely see anything from where we were sitting. We didnít try the food, but the beer was pretty good. Definitely not mind-blowing, but not undrinkable by any means. Service was "just okay". The bartender was very nice but didnít know much about the beers.

A hidden gem in Broad Ripple. They usually have a good selection of beers on tap. Beers range from middling to good. Try the draught beers if you havenít before. Food is very good. Much better than most brewpubs. Very good selection of vegetarian food. The place can be a little noisy and service a little slow during peak hours, so I try to go during off hours. Recommended.

An English-style pub in Broad Ripple, Indianapolis. It is a dimly lit place with a very small bar (maybe 6 seats or so) plus tables throughout and some outdoor seating. There were a number of taps on (~8), I got the Java Porter (awesome!) and IPA which was pretty good. The food is English style and ok. I got the Shepherdís Pie, and it was just ok, Iíve certainly had better. Anyway, for the beer this is a good stop and they seem to rotate their beers often, so there is always something new to try. A great stop and Iíd go back again for sure!

Sigh. Didnít like this place at all. Liked the ambience... labyrinthine with lots of dark wood. I sat at the bar and immediately felt unwelcome. It seemed like getting a sampler was a hassle. To the bartenders credit she did eventually sense this and brightened up but I had already decided not to eat and to leave. There were a couple of good beers but also some pretty mediocre ones. Prices seemed decent. Parking looked like it could be tricky. If I find myself with time to kill in Indy I might give them another try but for now Iím not inclined to go back.

Indyís classic brew pub. Worth a visit if in the area, but be sure to hit the other breweries in the area as well. Their beers are all solid (as long as you donít get an infected batch; yes, they do keep infected beers on tap which is my biggest complaint). I wish they had a little more variety (read:hops) but it is what it is and it is pretty good. Modeled after a traditional English pub by itís tradition English owner it has a nice ambiance along with good bartenders.

A nice little place for sure. My bartender was prompt and knowledgeable, couldnít complain there. The selection was mostly their brews, but thatís to be expected. Even had one on cask! Average prices. Overall, definitely stop by if you have the time while in Indy!

I went to this brewpub on a recent road trip with my band. There were 12 of us at the table, I enjoyed the sampler which was affordable at roughly $8 for 7 6 oz pours and also had the vegan sloppy joes, which were very good and were highly recommended by friends. The service was downright horrible, I think the server came by 1 time aside from ordering and bringing our food. Also, friends of mine got the Bison Burger and said it was way too dry and not worth the money.
