The Broad Ripple brewpub is one of my favorite places to go in the area. The food is outstanding, and the services is excellent and friendly(and knowledgeable about their beers) They don't have a huge selection of beers that aren't brewed on site, but I always opt for one of their own beers anyway. Had a delicious black currant sour that they collaborated with Brugge on(Tart Lizzie) today. Highly recommend if you're in the broad ripple area!

We visited this brewpub on a Saturday following an eight hour drive. The parking was horrendous due to some other event in town, but in general this appears to be a popular area and I'd always expect parking to be a bit on the difficult side.

The restaurant was busy but we were promptly seated and had a beer within 3 minutes. Awesome. Tried the kolsch and a lawnmower pale ale. The kolsch wasn't that great and it seemed like the flavor was off, but I am by no means an expert in that style of beer. The pale ale was very good. Lightly hopped and exactly the refreshing beverage that was needed after a long drive and a stressful parking scenario.

Food was excellent. Many vegetarian and heart healthy options. Best spinach melt I've ever had (and the only).

Being an avid biker, I have to say the best part of the Broad Ripple Brewpub is location. The brewpub literally sits a few feet from the Monon bike trail which makes it a great place to stop for a break. My wife & I did just that on a sunny and hot Saturday afternoon. We first thought of cooling off by sitting inside at the bar. Those hopes were dashed after we saw the tiny bar tucked into the corner, which had no more than 8 stools, all of which being occupied. We promptly turned around and went back outside, where we were seated at one of the many tables. As we reclined in the cheap plastic chairs, we continued sweating after a long bike ride but enjoyed the opportunity to people watch. That alone made for an interesting affair as the clientele on this particular afternoon was quite diverse. That included the group of "Real Housewives" in their sun dresses behind us, the possibly inebriated guy behind me who was telling everyone within earshot about how good the Chocolate Milk Stout was (it was pretty good, to be honest), and the bachelorette party assembling outside as we were leaving. We actually felt a little underdressed in our grubby shorts and t-shirts, but I digress.

Service was prompt and we'll forgive our server for being a little gruff as she clearly had her hands full. She seemed a little disappointed when we declined to order food.

We tried 3 different beers and all were good. Our favorite was the Lawn Mower Pale Ale, which lived up to its description as a "thirst quencher." Prices for 1 imperial pint and 1 half-pint apiece were reasonable.

Overall, we did not have a bad experience but there was nothing to get excited about either. There are other brewpubs within walking (or biking) distance that rate better, in our opinion.
