Nice large brewpub convenient to I-65. They were one of the first Indiana breweries to bottle (must have a decent local fanbase as most of the bottled beers are middle of the road but somehow still survive). Nice menu - recently selection has improved with more special/seasonal beers. Good place if you want a decent pub meal.

A restaurant/brewpub on the outskirts of Indy. It seemed akin to a Rock Bottom sort of establishment- lots of tables, a small bar, focus on sports. The beers themselves were mostly mediocre. The IPA was good, but the wit bier, pumpkin ale, and porter were below average. The pecan pie I had was tasty but thatís all the food I had. Definitely skip this place in favor of other Indy breweries, as the beers are of lesser quality in comparison. Keep your expectations low and youíll be ok.

Comfortably appointed small brewpub in a small strip mall...pub, regular bar, dining and patio areas. Beers are generally pretty solid, but they donít do a lot of the tap rotation that keeps raters circling back....Although, they do have some nice seasonal and annual offerings. Food is very good and pricing is a little lower than average....pints are a good deal at $3.50.....staff is very attentive, though not as informed on details as some...it can be a trial to get the specifics on a new release....though the brewmaster does return calls and messages... I enjoy this place a lot, I just wish they offered a wider variety and frequency of beers.

Small town place, that you get the feeling is a big locals joint. Being so close to Indy, I canít imagine going here for really any reason unless you want a true brewpub experience in Indy and donít want to head to the Broad Ripple area. Cheesy franchise feel inside, decent patio, but no dogs so kind of pointless. Typical bar food fair, but better than I expected. 8 beers on tap and nothing worth a squat. This place is a skip.

Very good pasta, especially for a brew pub. Several kinds of beers, with seasonal ones as well. Off the beaten path, but worth finding.

Stopped in once to try a few beers and grab a six pack. A large restaurant with a bar off in another room. Only one or two draft only beers on tap with bottles available for sale. Didnít try the food. Service was fine but werenít to sure about the beers. Prices were quite nice.

Been to this place several times. Food variety is better than most brewpubs. Beers are ok. Service was slow and unattentative. I guess the server felt if you come in alone youíre not going to want anything. Hostess was more interested in texting than greeting or seating guests.

Ambiance is a typical brewpub, but in the summers you can request an outside table out back, which I recommend. The service, price and food taste/quality are all pretty much typical for a brewpub, but if you sit at the bar you will be well taken care of. The selection of their beers is broad, and they do have other brews available if none of theirs tickles your fancy. Overall a great place to stop if you are on the South Side, but we donít go there very often because it is pretty far out of the way.

While in Indy I stumbled onto this place and decided to give it a try. Typical brewpub feel, the brewing operation was visible through windows. Ample seating with several televisions playing sports stations. Unfortunately we were seated in an area where the brewhouse was not visible. The food was average, lots of choices, but average at best. The beer menu was decent for a small brewpub, I think there were 5 or 6 beers available. My wife had the sampler, and I had the Indiana Amber. The amber was decent, a little forgetable, but not bad. Among the beers on the sampler was a belgian witbier, an APA, a porter, a rasberry wheat fruit beer, and the amber. The belgian witbier was OK at best, but I would not order it again, and the Rasberry wheat beer was pretty bad. The APA and the porter were decent. Unfortunately, they did not have any guest taps, so if you are less than blown away by thier offerings you are out of luck... The service was disappointing, our server knew nothing about the beer, and rarely checked on us to see if we needed anything else. I think they need to do a better job at training thier staff on the beers that they offer. Overall this place was not bad, but it was far from stellar. None of the beers were good enough to draw be back in there for a repeat visit.

We have visited here several times on trips to Indiana, and I have never been terribly impressed with the beer. It is a good and solid brewpub, but the beer is only very drinkable and not exceptional. The food is above average and the service has always been prompt. Wide selection of menu items and usually 4-6 beers on at a time. I will agree that the prices are reasonable for what you receive food and beer-wise. Definitely worth a stop when in Greenwood.
