I came to Brugge for the Belgian brews: Black Ale brewed with 9 malts, molasses, poplar syrup, dark candi sugar, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some orange peels.
Sadly some found its licorice flavor a bit much ("Too much COW BELL") but as the taste buds saturated on that flavor and this Black beauty warmed up, it showed is Malt pedigree and even a bit of the belgian yeast characterists.

We backed off and chose the Belgian Blonde to pair with Moules Frites (2 lbs of PEI mussels and a cone of pomme frites with warm French bread @ $16.95)
The huge metal clad table had holes cut for the cones of frites. With just three brews on tap Brugge Brasserie lives by its excellent food such as the crepes mad ala minute with local and seasonal ingredients. I can not drink Belgian beer with out food - the L'Enorme classic pomme frites of Belgium $11.95 whetted my appatite as I finished the Belgian blonde sampled the Saison which was soon to come off tap and be followed by a Tripel - Belgian style Abbey Ale.

We had just judged a special barrel aged sour ale and I had a nice conversation with Ted Miller following the award ceremony at the Indiana Brewers Cup competition. Brugge Brasserie owners have purchased the former Terre Haute Brewing Company / Champagne which will allow bottling and distribution of larger batches for his wonderful creations.

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.
