3 very solid beers on tap that were served in the proper glassware, albeit a bit too cold. Our waitress was a polite law student that knew only the basics about the beers on tap, but seemed to know the food menu well. Very tasty mussels and frites. There were a lot of other tempting choices on the menu, and with the beers as good as they were, I will definitely return here on my next trip to Indy.
3 beers on tap
black - like a robust prter with belgian yeast - very complex and interesting
Grand Cru - lightly spiced very drinkable
Ate some mussells and fries went well with the food.
Gets a 5 dogs bollocks from me- Must Visit
Stopped in here today on a recommendation from the local crew. Drove from Columbus, Ohio to check it out. Sat out on the patio. They had three beers on today, we tried two. A tripel and the black. I liked them both. Service was very casual, but adequate. The food was DELIGHTFUL. I had the crepes Suzette, and they were WONDERFUL. Husband had the oysters which he enjoyed. I would come back jsut for the beer, but the crepes are worth a visit too!
Having been to the Broad Ripple area twice almost 4 years ago, I was stunned when as we pulled up to this place it was in the same building that I had been to previously. They are in the first floor of what used to be a building used entirely by the Internet Cafe upstairs. The first floor is really transformed though, smaller with the brew room off to one side, but very nicely decorated. The kitchen bar is unchanged from before, but the beer bar is a new addition. The food was really good as was the saison I had. The Black that they had on was a little off, and unfortunately we came at a time that they only had two beers on. The place was pretty empty at the time so the service was just fine. I’ll definitely be back.
Easy to find location on corner with street parking and a small lot. Nicely remodeled building with a clean wooden deck and interior. Did not eat. This is a first class location, with very freindly staff with a limited number of beers on tap. The quality of beers was very good. This was a nice visit during a bike ride and I will stop when I am in the area.
Great beer, though there was unfortunately only two on tap. I thought they were exceptionally well done, with few flaws. Really excellent food. Best mussels I’ve had this far in land, great frites, and realy good crepes. The food was a bit pricey, but when it’s that good, I’ll gladly pay that much. However, the service was kind of crappy. We were seated quickly, and someone came to take our drink order promptly, but then we were ignored for over half an hour... all the while we’re doing everything we can to flag our waiter down while he ignores us. Getting the check was just about as hard. The funny thing is, all the other tables seemed to get prompt and attentive service. Two parties walked in 5 to 10 minutes after us and not only had their orders taken, but had their food before we even had our food orders taken! When it comes to service, I just hate waiting, and all told we spent over an hour waiting, and it wasn’t even that crowded (though maybe it was busy for a Saturday afternoon). The food and beer was greati so I’d go again, but if I get ignored like that again, I think that’ll be it.
Small place with eight or nine normal height tables and some bar height tables. Also there seems to be seating outside. Very cool looking artistic light sconces on the walls. The “Woodshed” hides the brewery which is just an adjoining room with a picture frame window. I see two separate bar areas. One is at the entrance where the kitchen is and the other is the traditional one where the beer is tapped. Wow, the food is tasty. The area around here has interesting shops, parks, trails and restaurants. I enjoyed some really good food. The two beers available were both solid selections.

Small place fairly easy to get to. I liked the copper table tops. Beer served in proper glassware. Knowledgeable staff. Limited beers, 2 at my time of visit.
Excellent atmosphere. Brewery only makes belgian style beers. So while the selection isn’t very wide, what is there is generally very good. Knowledgeable staff. Good food. The sandwiches are huge and the papas frites are excellent.
The decor is beautiful. I find it kind of small but still has a great atmosphere. THe beer is AMAZING!! Much love of the brew here.

This was my first visit and I was excited to taste the beer/food combo. It was Saturday night around 7:30pm when we got there and the hostess (waitress) said there was an 1.5 hour wait for a table! We were able to get lucky and squeeze into a table at the bar. None of their brews were on tap which was very very disappointing. Grotten Brown, Lafayette Dopplebock, and Stella were the only options. The food was eclectic and very tasty. Decor was interesting and unique. The crowd was typical Broodripple fair. No smoking anywhere is awesome. I appreciate what they are trying to do and look forward to another visit. I will now call ahead and make sure they have something of theirs on tap before I drive out there.
Re-visit: Friday after work and I could walk right up to the bar and order one of 5 house brews on tap. Met Ted who is very friendly and was interested in talking beer. Before the night was over I was able to taste 3 of the 5 and all were unique and super tasty. Moral of the story: timing is everything and you must go if you are in Indy.
