I stopped by this place for lunch while on my way to pick up my Upland Gilgamesh. I had heard good things, and had seen their menu online, so I was excited to try it out.

A - The outside of the building is pretty cool with the decoration/signage acting like wall sculpture. Inside, the place is small, but cozy. The tables are copper-topped with holes cut out for the frites. My only rip on the place is the mismatch of taste level in the look of the place. There was bad art hanging from the wall, and the chairs did not belong. However, the wall lighting and the tables which I previously mentioned were up scale and forward thinking.

Q - From the food to the brews, everything there was quite good, and easy exceeded my expectations. The beers were great and original. These guys seem to understand that they need to focus on a few number of brews in order to push their quality.

S - Our waiter was awesome, and he seemed to have a valued interest in their beer even though he did not seem to be a brewer/owner. He answered a lot of questions for me, and checked on us several times.

SL - They have 10 taps: 5 house brews and 5 visitors. Upstairs, they have a decent selection of bottled brews, but not much local stuff (no FFF). They focus on small breweries, which is cool, but they did not have much I cannot get at home.

F - The food was very good. My wife and I shared a white beer battered cod crepe and a large pomme frites with curry, pesto, and a new Belgian style sauce. My wife also had a house-made soda (orange cream ($2)), which was a little too sweet, but as the ice melted a bit, it was quite tasty.

V - My wife and I split our meal, which was way too much food... I was not expecting a good value, but now I know better. Beerwise, I ordered a Harvey, which was a larger pour than what I expected ($5) and a flight of their Triple de Ripple, Tyro, and Black ($7).

Overall, I know I will be coming back, and I look forward to getting some of their brews in bottles/growlers in the future. (2,016 characters)

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. (746 characters)

I love this place. I actually think the mussels And fries are better here than in Brugge Belgium! (97 characters)

Some great food options- stick with mussels though. One great beer on tap- Pooka. Delicious. Everything else can be hit or miss. (129 characters)

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. (609 characters)
