This place is a little unassuming building with lots of tables on the outside. It was a nice night and it was great to eat outside on this quite street. When I went in to find the bathroom it is like a series of small rooms stuck together. I felt like I was walking through several private parties. I did see a room with some nice dartboards and the whole place has dark wood giving it a bit of a pub feel.
They had a good beer list with several of their beers, two on cask, with a good list of local and U.S. craft beers. I really like a good cask beer but these beers didn’t have the depth or slight hazy that I enjoy in a good cask beer. They have imp. pints and ½ pints which is nice if for a good sample of a beer. Their brewed-on-premises beers all seemed to have an English influence but that may just be what was on tap.
The food was very British fare with the appetizer as two scotch eggs. There were good and the best price I have seen on this side of the pond. For the entrée I had shepherd’s pie which I grew fond of in grade school, with the distinct layers of mashed potatoes, ground beef and a random vegetable, topped with gravy. This was much different and perhaps too authentic, I don’t know. There were mashed potatoes in a bowl with a ground beef and mushroom mixture with a tomato sauce. That was pretty good but on top was a slice of tomato with a square of Kraft singles melted on top. It was interesting but not my favorite.
The combination of atmosphere, good beer and comfortable food made this a very nice experience. It is always a good sign when I eat a bit too much, drink a bit too much and laugh a bit too much. That is a good evening.

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).
