Establishment: Broad Ripple Brewing Company, Indianapolis, IN

I have visited brew pubs all over the US, and the Broad Ripple Brew Pub, right here in my own back yard, is still my favorite. I say this as a 15+ year, national award-winning homebrewer that loves the craft brewing industry, so trust me on this one. The beer is always great, I honestly have never had a problem with the service, the food is always good, and the atmosphere suits my taste (it has the feel of a small English pub). The ESB is awesome, as well as anything on the hand pull (if I was choosing my last beer ever, it would be the Porter on the hand pull). Although the BRBP has the feel of a small English pub, it is located in the bohemian / Greenwich Village-ish section of Indianapolis (Broad Ripple), and the wait staff fits that description. They do a good job, but don't expect a super efficient and highly-polished staff (if that is what you are looking for, try one of the brew pub chains downtown). The BRBP is a laid back place to enjoy some of the best beer you will ever have. Locals have voted it the best brew pub in Indianapolis every year for well over a decade, so that says a lot. For parking, look for a spot along the Monon trail just to the East of the pub. Enjoy your trip.

Establishment: Chalkies, Indianapolis, IN

Great selection of unique Micros and Belgians (on tap!) and you never know what they will have on tap next... Firkins of Real Ale, a True Kolsch from Germany, who knows, but you can bet it will be awesome. No tour of Indy's best beer bars is complete without a visit to Chalkies. Oh yea, the food is great as well. As an avid homebrewer and beer lover, I have been to brewpubs and great beer bars all over the country and this one (in my own hometown) is one of the best.
