I had been wanting to try this one for awhile so my wife and I made it our destionation for our anniversary.

It is settled just off the canal in Broad ripple village and quite easy to find. The nice thing about this location it there is so much else to do around the area that you really could make a day of it.

We entered about 5:45 on a Saturday night and had called ahead, which was a good thing since there was only about a dozen tables in the dining room area but more in the bar area. It seemed very upscale and maybe a bit snotty at first but we quickly relaxed into the mood. We had a wonderful waiter, I have forgot his name but he was the only male on the wait staff. He was very friendly and very down to earth. We ordered beers first and was lucky that they had the two that I was hoping to try on tap that night. They usually only have 2 ot 3 beers on tap at any given time which could be a problem if you were looking for something else from thier asortment. I started with the Black and my wife had the Blonde. The black was complex and amazing while the Blonde was just average and a bit yeasty. We folowed with a Tripel each which was lovely and sessionable for the style.

The menu was very Belgium oriented and featured Mitrailettes(sandwichs), Crepes, Moules(mussels), amazing salads, soups, and Frites which are belgium fries. We had a sesonal cheese plate as an appetizer which paired well with the Black. I had the sausage Mitrailette w ed peppers and dubbel glazed onions. My wife had the chicken Mitrailette. Both came with fites and choice of 2 dipping sauces (I highly recomend the hot curry and garlic aioli). The meals were very good especially the frites.

Overall this was a great place for a meal or a night with friends. We will be back soon.

About 5 or 6 years ago, someone sent me a Triple de Ripple in a trade. Ever since then, I wanted to visit this particular spot, since the beer was quite nice. Decor is really quite nice, beautiful and quaint. Lots of attention to detail and a very clean and mature kind of place. Service was very nice. Since I was there for lunch I basically had the bar to myself. I talked a good bit with the owners and they are very nice people. Beer was good, although they had more beer from their second brewery, Outliers, than they did for BB. Two guest beers also. I wouldn't have minded a wider selection on the Belgian edge, but there was still plenty to have. Overall a very worthy stop and a visit I have been wanting to make for quite some time now.

I love this place. I actually think the mussels And fries are better here than in Brugge Belgium!

Some great food options- stick with mussels though. One great beer on tap- Pooka. Delicious. Everything else can be hit or miss.

This is easily my favorite beer spot in Indy. It can get a little bit crowded but there's usually plenty of room in the upstairs bar. Brugge brews some of my favorite beers and the guest taps and bottle selection are always outstanding as well. Service is great. The staff is friendly and I rarely find myself waiting for anything. The food is every bit as good as the beer. Especially the crepes. Cuisine is a little bit different from what you might find at most pubs, but there's enough variety for most people to find something that they will enjoy.

This is a must-visit for any beer geek visiting Indy.

This review can be summed up with two sentiments: Triple de Ripple and Mussels. Brugge has a nice atmosphere including outdoor seating with a friendly wait staff. While there is a nice menu, the mussels and classic Belgian pomme frites with various aiolis and sauces are the real winner here.

While there tap list of Brugge beers is typical small, the quality is very good. There is also an impressive bottle list of Belgians, Sours, and harder to find local stuff. It is a bit pricey, but for the quality is a fair deal.

Take a friend, split a pot of mussels and some fries and suck down a couple Triples for me!

I've been to Brugge a few times. They're slow to seat and slow to serve. The food is quite good though. The mussels are amazing and the frites are also quite good. I try not to get too fancy on the sauces. The beers are always Belgian and you can always find one or two of the five that you like. Solid way to spend an hour or more in Broad Ripple.

Visited: 10 May 2014

Atmosphere: Lots of people in a great part of town. Neat art on the walls and soft lighting. Awesome copper tables with holes in the middle to store the cones of fries. Lots of young people ages 21-30 keeping the atmosphere loud and lively.

Quality: Incredible beers brewed both on site and at the main production brewery (under the name "Outliers").

Service: Kind of got a cranky old server.

Selection: Only four Brugge beers on tap and the guest taps contained about 8 others, most of which were brewed by Brugge at their production facility.

Food: Incredible food. The fries are incredible, as well as the homemade sauces.

Value: Food was inexpensive for what you get and the beers were also very reasonably priced for the quality, style, and quantity they give you. I would very highly recommend Brugge Brasserie to anyone passing through Broad Ripple.
