Awesome! Great Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
Easily one of the best brewpubs I have ever visited. The beer is tops,, my favorite being the IPA followed by their Porter. To top things off the menu is one of the most interesting that I have ever seen in a bar. It was the first time I have had a pizza with walnuts on it,,fantastic. And as long as you are not a cardiologist you have to try the Scotch Eggs. All in all a very fun place,,the service was the best,, very freindly and knowlegable. This place calls for a return trip to Indianaplois for me.

Visited shortly before Christmas for the first time in about a year. They have expanded the seating area by adding a glassed-in porch, but this is still the coziest BP I've ever been to.

The beer quality here is first-rate: the other reviewers here don't sing Broad Ripple's praises highly enough. Of the approx. 100-125 brewpubs I've been to, this easily makes the top ten. Outstanding IPA, the beer I use for a benchmark. They had a firkin of Scottish Ale sitiing on the shelf that knocked my socks off--literally. You need to be careful at Broad Ripple--all of their beers tend to be high gravity, and Scottish Ales are, of course, even higher than the norm.

Several non-standard items on the menu. For example, I had pasta in a spicy Indonesian-type peanut sauce that was great.

As far as "being off the beaten path," Broad Ripple Village has been the "bohemian" area in Indianapolis for as long as I can remember (which is now back to the early 70's), and is a great place to stroll around. If you get good directions, you can be there in ten minutes from downtown or the NE or NW sides of town.

Bottom line: this is a must-visit BP if you're in Indiana and love beer. If you're visiting town, don't waste time at the others before coming here.

Easily the best brewpub in Indy, the ESB was the best of the bunch. I also tried a bottle of stout from a brewery in Michigan which was excellent. The atmosphere of this place is great, I will visit when I am back in town.

A relaxing neighborhood pub with a limited selection of great beer. Stout was very good and darker ales were terrific.

Atmosphere is key. A fun non-corporate setting to enjoy some of Indiana's best microbeers. Off the beaten path and worth the look.

If you visit one microbrewery in Indy, go to Broad Ripple's. The beer is great. I tried the scotch eggs a year ago and I can still feel them in my digestive tract.

In the Broad Ripple area nestled away from the main drag. Worth going to. IPA (Indiana Pale Ale) and their Stout are pretty tasty. Appeared to be a very cozy neighborhood place. Enjoyed it!!

Often crowded in the evenings. The ESB is the best I have had in the states. Ride your bycycle along the Monon Trail in the morning and stop here for lunch. The Scotch Eggs are an experience.

This is a required stop for all visitors to the area. Excellent atmosphere, good food and great beer! The wheat beer is excellent -- the best weizen I've had this side of Bavaria (it tastes JUST LIKE this stuff they brew in Aschaffenburg), and all the offerings are at least passable.

A fun place to relax and enjoy some excellent beer. The IPA and cask conditioned porter were very good. This was my second trip and I will be back. Be sure to try the Scotch eggs appetizer, but be sure your cholesterol count is okay first, because it won't be afterwards.

The best part of a trip to this cozy pub is the wonderful Broad Ripple neighborhood. Stop by the pub for a good fish sandwich and a weizen, then go enjoy the vibrant, very un-Indiana neighborhood. Plan plenty of time; service is friendly but consistently veeery slow.

From what I've been able to tell, this place is out of the way enough to not draw too many way-out-of-towners. That's good because there doesn't seem to be that ever-present Indianapolis corporate sheen. Just decent beer here in a nice cozy barroom ( which is very small). The ESB tasted just right, the porter was too thin, and the seasonal was a steam beer. It was ok, not excellent. Maybe next time I'll get to try all of their offerings. Oh well...Pizza was no big deal and rather expensive. I'll go back.

This was the first brew pub in town and it remains the standard by which all other Indy pubs are measured. A must visit when you are town.

A lot is to be said about atmosphere and outside beer selection. House brews are fun but not usually the best. This renovated house can get crowded but it is interesting enough to draw you back more than once. A must see in Indianapolis.
