Nice looking place, again street parking is easy, but you might need to stay a block away due to the traffic and parking around the whole-foods clone across the street. Outdoor patio area not much use in the rain, but normally a nice touch. Inside there was a seating room and a bar room; L-shaped bar with plenty of seats. Prompt service for the most part. 40 taps, pretty solid list - several that I wanted to try. Definitely a Midwest feel to the list. Included two beers from Twenty Below (House Brewed). All beers available as 6 oz taster pours, which is a little much for a taster, but a nice gesture nonetheless.

Update 10/11/14: This is a great bar, now brewpub, in Indy. They now feature much more than 20 taps (probably more like 30-35), with heavy emphasis on Indiana locals (Outliers, Indiana City, Chilly Water, Central State, to name a few). They had on 2 of their own beers. I enjoyed the pumpkin ale. They now have food, fairly standard pub fare. The oktoberfest wurst special was really good. Overall, a great bar, especially if you’re looking for local/in-state beer.
1/14/12. Visited this bar with a big group in early November. It is a small space in Broad Ripple, half is a sit-down area, while the other half holds the bar and is standing room only. As the name suggests, they have 20 beers, all local crafts. I remember they had Upland, Sun King, Flat12, and a whole bunch of others. But my point is that it’s a great stop if you can’t hit all the Indy stops and just want a few samples. Overall, it is a highly recommended stop.
(Visited 05/2014, and once a few years ago when they really had twenty taps): Twenty Tap is located in Broad Ripple on N College Avenue at the corner of 54th. Street parking is fairly plentiful in the surrounding area.
There is a patio along the front of the building. Inside the brick building there is a bar area on the left and table/booth seating on the right. The bar area features a curved wooden bar, yellow walls and hanging lights. There is a board behind the bar listing the available beers.
As the name indicates, this place started off with 20 taps years ago, all from Indiana. More recently they have expanded to nearly 40 draught options, including their own beers under the "Twenty Below" label. Other breweries include Indiana brewers like Flat 12, Sun King, Mad Anthony, Three Floyds and Upland, plus domestic craft breweries like Stone, Dark Horse and Boulevard. Flights are available.
Service during a busy lunch on Saturday was pretty good. Our server was very familiar with the beers and attentive until near the end of our meal when the place was crazy busy, and that’s not really his fault.
As for food at Twenty Tap, the menu features appetizers, salads, burgers and other sandwiches. My Turkey Burger was excellent.
All in all this place belongs near the top of the list for beer bars in Indy. Good food and a solid selection of beers from the region equals a must-visit in my book.
A spot over near Broad Ripple with a good draft list. Most are guest drafts, but they have a few of their own as well. Service was solid, as was the atmosphere. There is indoor and outdoor seating (along with the bar). I didn’t eat, but they do serve food. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Cool corner place. Not busy on an early Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday is $3.50 pint day which was a deal. Tap list is very Indiana heavy, which is cool as I am not very versed in Indiana beer. Pleasant service and a nice time. Had a house beer and it was pretty good. Did not eat.
Stopped by this place on Saturday night around 8pm. Yes, it was a zoo, very crowded. Hardly a place to stand, even, but you can’t fault them for that.. Bar on one side was a little cramped, and on the other there were lots of booths and tables for the restaurant side. The place is not that big overall, though. Amazing selection of taps, kind of felt like more than 20 taps... Very good selection. Tasters offered in sets of 3 for $6, I think I remember... Overall, definitely recommended for the beer selection, but the ambiance didn’t make us want to linger for too long. Would love to revisit during more chill hours. Not sure why this is listed as a brewpub, didn’t see any house beers on tap, and there was nothing there that suggested they brewed their own beers.
Made the mistake of passing by this place several times before going in. Seating pretty limited and would imagine this place is a zoo on a Friday/Saturday night. Impressive tap list - many local and regional selections. Definitely a must stop if in the area. Parking sucks though so plan to walk unless you’re lucky.
Dropped in on MLK day. Friendly staff. Overall nice ambiance. Interesting beer list -- heavily oriented toward midwestern brews, many of which had only a few ratings. I sample eight beers and all were really quite good. Beers were available in three 3 oz flights for six bucks, which makes for a pretty cost-effective tasting session.
