Nice location in Broad Ripple, within a couple of blocks of Barley Island and Brugge. The atmosphere is medium classy, nicely lit and decorated but unpretentious; it's basically a higher-scale pizza joint with craft beer and home brews. The crowd was friendly white professionals in their 30s and 40s, and the bartenders knew a decent amount about all the beers on tap.

There was a great selection of bottles and cans from other breweries (with a strong focus on Indiana beers, natch) and about 8 house beers on tap. I didn't get any food, but the pizza looked and smelled good, and you're given ridiculously salty popcorn just for sitting down.

When Thr3e Wise Men are brewing well, their beers are quite solid. But, as I noted in my Golden Zoe review, they seem to have some quality control issues. So it's probably a good idea to ask for a sample before you commit to a pint, even if you know full well what an IPA should taste like.

Overall, though, I really enjoyed my time here. I was by myself--didn't plan on stopping by--but had no trouble starting conversations with the locals. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood, which is rare on a Monday in December, and I took that as a sign that this is the sort of place that treats its regulars well.

The food at Thr3e Wise Men is great, especially the pizza and wings. I can't say I like the picnic tables they use for seating all that much and the service is typically slow. The beer is the major disappointment for me. With the exception of a replic ale they released in the summer of 2012, which was very tasty, their beers are mediocre at best. The Snow Bunny Blonde lacks any discernible taste. The Two Lucy's wheat is too sweet. The Rocky Ripple Ale, Golden Zoe and their double IPA, pretty much taste the same. I'm not exactly sure what the problem is but their beers just seem...lazy. When Thr3e Wise Men first opened they had a variety of guest beers which was a nice option. I'm crossing my fingers they'll be able to put some good brews together in the future or go back to selling other craft selections.

Thr3e Wise Men is a great spot to eat and enjoy a few pints. The decor is a stark contrast between the stainless vats and brewery which is visible from the restaurant and the log cabin décor. The bar area is a bit small, but overall the place is very welcoming and the staff is friendly.

This place has great food and its pizza is particularly good. There is complementary popcorn at the bar and at the tables which is a nice touch. The brewpub serves it's own beers and has a small bottle collection. At any given time there are probably between 8 and 10 taps with usually a couple of guest taps.

Thr3e Wise Men offers daily specials and has 3$ pint night a couple times a week. Overall this is a great place to go with good food, good beer, and good people.

This is a great spot. Great beer. Great grub. Great atmosphere. Great decor. Great staff. Great service. I have been here twice. Once for lunch. Once for dinner. The food pairs great with the beer. The beer pairs great with the food. The game on a sea of flat screens everywhere, including the bathroom. Great everything! !
