There is something to be said about a
Brewery/Eatery that stays true to its roots. Brugge does just that! The decor is charming much like what you would see in a smaller town place in Europe. The Beer selection is small and for good reason! They focus on a specific style and do it exceptionally well.
The Triple is my favorite but they also have some unique brews from their sister brewery Outliers which Brews a great sour called Pooka. Food menu specializes in a variety of Mussels & Frites which are always my first choice followed by the mandatory Nutella Crepe.
Went back after an almost seven year absence, and I really felt this place has gone downhill. Besides needing an interior makeover, the food was just not up to par. Smothering a sandwich with fries canít hide the low quality duck being used. The beers - theirs and their other brewery Outliers - were not up to what I remembered Brugge being capable of doing. Only four of each, but none stood out as being of much quality. I was really disappointed with this visit overall.
The bottom of a house like structure that is a bit dated and old. Service was very nice and selection was great. They do some nice sour beers and have flights that are a touch pricey. Served in nice glass though. Food is supposed to be great Belgian but we didnít. A good stop for some interesting beer in a cluster of geeky places to visit. What is not to like.
A short trail walk from Broad Ripple takes you to Brugge, which has a completely different vibe to it. Agree with travlr that it has a gastropub feel to it; several small dining rooms and a small cozy bar. Flights were 3 pours for $7, add additional pours for $2 each. I stuck with the three. Beer not bad, food solid, huge portions. Service Midwest friendly and efficient. Enjoyable stop.
Street parking. Inside is more like a gastropub than a brewery, small counter bar as you walk in that looks like it used to be a pizza prep area, now missing the oven, kitchen behind it. And then modernish restaurant tables. Not a lot on offer, four of their beers, but four guests as well. Didnít eat, but the food looked good, so Iíd return to do so. Worth a stop.

Only had 3 of their own beers. Not much explanation as to the styles. One was labeled a saison but when it arrived it was some 11% rye monstrosity. Service was a little indifferent. The food was awesome though. The steak frites were delicious. Iíd go back for the food.
Good location on broad ripple. Selection was a few of their brugge and outliers beers. Food is fantastic, large portions for a fairly good price. Enjoyed their trippel with my duck confit. Fair amount of parking.
Came here on a Saturday. Only had two of their own beers on tap! However, they did have a number of somewhat rare local and regional guest taps. Still, if you brew your own beer, guest taps should never outnumber your own offerings and if they do, some explanation should be given. Ordered mussels and fries. They were both pretty good. Other menu items looked good too. Server seemed stoned and forgot part of our groupís order.
