Located downtown not too far from the Ball State campus - I have been wanting to get here since joining RB but took me a long time to get back to Muncie. Dark, cozy pub - great selection both on tap and bottles. Now brewing their own beers - all the ones I had were great. A good thing that this place wasnít around when I went to Ball State or I would have never gotten my degree. Top notch.

Hiding deep in the heart of downtown Muncie, Indiana, this is simply the most outstanding bar in the entire state for the beer connoisseur to explore and enjoy tastiness! Classic wood architecture seeps throughout the entire building, friendly and knowledgeable employees take pride in their job there, and the heavy rotation of hundreds of beers make this a truly unique establishment that instantly makes Muncie a place to visit. The best.

This is a place for a great selection of beer and good service, in downtown Muncie. Worth going out of your way to get really good beer in Indiana. Named after the mead hall/dining hall in Beowulf (remember sophomore Literature?), it has a funky feel with wooden benches along wooden tables, and several seats at the bar. Bartender was new but very friendly. Some of the beers on the menu were not available but there was always a similar one to be recommended. Food was only passable, but otherwise no complaints.

(Visited 08/2010): The Herot is located in downtown Muncie on Walnut off Jackson. Street parking appears to be pretty abundant in the immediate area. The inside is dark with a vaguely medieval look. Lots of wood, weapons on the walls, racks, etc. The bar runs along the right side with booth seating on the left. Taps are located at intervals along the entire bar. The only ding on atmosphere is the smoking they allow inside. As for the beers, there is a very robust list both on draught and in bottles. There are around 50 taps with brewers like Sun King, Thirsty Dog, Three Floyds, New Albanian, Victory, DFH, Upland and more. They offer growlers for most if not all of these beers. In addition there are 100s of bottles, categorized by style in a handy menu. There are tons of domestic craft beers plus imports from just about everywhere. Service on an early weekday afternoon was good. The bartenders were knowledgeable about their beer and were efficient. The food I had was to-go, and no complaints about the pizza. Overall this is a nice find in Muncie and is worth going out of the way to check out if you get the chance.

The sort of bar Iíd imagine was more prevalent many years ago, smoky and a little grungy, eclectic and a little weird, friendly and grounded in its community. Homey and yet unexpectedly interesting. Not well-lit and the bathroom was not very clean (with a surprise faucet neck -- too big and long for its sink). Chili dog was nothing special but the Stromboli surprised. Beer list was large and comprehensive, with some rare-ish taps and, surprisingly, a lot of stuff I hadnít had before. Good bartending and seems to be a place to find an easily-struck conversation with a stranger. A really good experience, enough that I want to make the drive to come back more often, but is it possible to call it a hidden gem after all the love itís been given here?

Iíve been to many draft houses around the US and Europe and by far Heorots has one of the best beer selections in both drafts and bottles. I first visited this bar a couple of years ago because my daughter is attending Ball State. It has a very unique atmosphere. I call it my viking bar and I visit it every chance I get when Iím in Muncie. If any of my friends would like to visit this unique draft house Iíll make a special 3 hour drive to meet them there for a few beers. See ya at the viking bar. Working on my 100 beers to make it on to the bar of fame.

The best place to enjoy a beer in Muncie, far and away. The Peach may be more modern and fancy, but nothine tops the Heorot for creating the desire to enjoy beer. Extremely amazing selection, especially considering the location, and a very reasonable price. The pizza is great, and the cigars add the icing on a delicious cake.

I first found Heorot while visiting a friend over 10 years ago and have dropped in occassionally ever since. I wondered why we were going to Muncie instead of into Indy, but once we set foot inside, I was converted. Great selection, reasonable prices and a great vibe. The only reason we didnít drink more is simply someone had to drive home.
