This place is in a trendy part of town that was alive with people on a Friday night. It has an internet café on top with very large banners so we weren’t sure we were at the right place until we parked. There were lots of tables out side with just as many inside. We ate at a large lauter ton covered with a big copper top. It was designed with holes for frittes cones and we put those to use. The down side of this seat is that you have to order from the bar but the plus side is you get a view of the whole place.
The chalkboard only had three beers on it but they had 6 handles on the taps. I asked about the beers as there were no descriptions anywhere and they really only had 3 beers on tap. All three were pretty big beers with no bottles of any other beers. They had the famous triple with a limit of 2 per visit and the Old Dog Cru and the Black. After we hit our limit of triples we tried the Black. The bartender described it as a stout but it was not at all. The ODC was spice and very medicinal so it was hard to finish. I heard great things about the beer so I was a little let down but the selection and some of the quality.
The frittes were amazing. I would go back for more and they had a great selection of dipping sauces. Garlic aioli, blueberry ketchup, and sweet chili were perfect with the zesty seasoned fries. I got the pate sampler and the local cheese sampler and it was too much to eat. My friend had the meatball sandwich and it was a full meal with fries on top.
The food is solid and if the beer selections picks up this will really be a must stop every time we are close to Indy.

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!
