A bit out of the way. Service was friendly and helpful. Food was pretty good. Beer was average, and you donít get everything with the sampler. I probably wonít see this place much.

Hometown brewery and a family restaurant, but the beer flavored artwork balances this well. OBís food is pretty darn good and service is quick and friendly. Try the Gnaw bone Pale Ale and Superfly IPA. If you are not afraid of the dark, try the Snake Pit Porter will make you smile Other beers include Indiana Amber, Razz-Wheat, and Uberweizen but are not my favorite brews, yet are excellent beers for their style.

Before I was really into beer, I lived a few miles down the road from this place and ate here 1 or 2 times a number of years ago. I decided to re-visit the place during a recent trip to Indiana. My wife reminded me that the food was lousy when we last went there, and she was right. Decor is that of the cheesy place next to the airport. You know, the one with the plane sticking out of the building? Service was slow. I was alone and sitting at the bar, and it was still slow. Organizationally, something was off. The one bartender had to continually pour drinks for waitstaff (at the expense of those at the bar) or disappear into the back for long periods. Beers were a little on the boring side. I had the SuperFly IPA, which was the most extreme at 5.8% ABV and a professed 100+ IBUs (although it didnít seem that bitter). My wife has a long memory - but the food is still lousy. Not really worth a stop. If youíre in Indy, go to Brugges Brasseries or Rathskeller instead.

This is my hometown brewery and I may be a little bias, but I will be as honest as one can be. It is a famaily restaurant, but the beer flavored artwork balances this well. Food is pretty darn good and sevice is quick and friendly, although sometime not as knowledgable as a beer geek would like. On nice summer days the bier garden is the place to be. The beer! I am a fan of hops and Mark (brewmaster) has done wonderful work with the Gnawbone pale ale and Superfly IPA. If you like em dark the Snake Pit Porter will make you smile and requet the Snake Venom(a bourbon barrel stout) that has only been brewed once, but was the best beer Iíve ever had at OB. They have bewed a light helles for those hot days this summer(very good). The Indiana Amber, Razz-Wheat, and Uberweizen are not my cup of brew, yet are excellent beers for their style.

A nice little place in an empty little strip mall. Definitely worth a visit if hitting up PartyPak, and vice versa - theyíre about ten minutes away from each other. Exceptionally clean for a restaurant serving such greasy food. Burger was succulent, with fresh ingredients (especially the onions), and very good fries. Tanks to see behind walls of glass. Waitress was friendly and accommodating - and no charge for the samples! As for the beers themselves, OB is somewhat hit-and-miss...

OK, Iíve been here three more times, the beer having consistently improved, with the bonus of regular one-offs and tweaked recipes (e.g. oak cubes in the porter). Had an improptu tour with new headbrewer Mark, who was funny and informative, and really won me over for the place. Didnít know they had a Biergarten out back (had to be told), but it looks like fun for the springtime. Iím sure to pick up a growler every time Iím around the south side of Indy (love me some Suupaafly�

Located in a small, well-kept shopping center. Friendly, prompt service. The atmosphere is classy enough but still very inviting to any average Joe. They offer a beer sampler, good price. I ate a philly chicken cheesesteak which was affordable, large, and quite tasty. It came fast enough that I was still sampling brews, so it sat and became slightly cold. The bartender offered to set it under the heat lamp for me, but I politely declined because my pickiness for food is nowhere near my selectiveness pertaining to beer. For anyone traveling along the interstate in this area, I would highly recommend stopping here. The beers were of above average quality for this kind of setting.

Good food, nice menu. Quiet usually. New no smoking ordinances have eliminated some of Skipís entourage from the guest list other than in the Beer garden (weather depending, of course). Get a Schmoozer Card if you are going to make this a frequent stop.

Easy to locate and can be seen from main road with easy parking in front. Nice clean location with a bar in the center with a seperate eating area in the back. Full menu with a seperate page for the day of apps, main course and seasonal beers. The Greek Pizza was very good. Had the sampler of beers. Good selection of brews with sampler page for reference.
