Nice little place. 15 or so tables, bar and standing room.

They had about 12 beers of their own and another 8-10 guest taps that were nicely currated. I got 4 $2 samples of their beers and it was impressive. Food was good, but pretty standard paninis. French fries were good.

Nice place.
Big beer selection, everyone in my party got two 8 oz pours and swapped to try. Each beer was unique, clean and if to a style, very well done.

Lovely outdoor patio, lovely inside, great service and reasonably priced. I will go back when next in Indiana.

Black Acre Brewery is my favorite brewery in Indy. They have an outstanding selection of house and guest beers. The kitchen, while small, turns out fantastic food that includes Sunday Brunch. Black Acre is in the middle of historic Irvington and they are very supportive of local businesses. I have enjoyed their fresh cut French fries, panini's and crostini's on several occasions. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and the prices, especially compared to the quality of their product, is outstanding.

A - Crowd is older / more established than 20-something hipsters and frat bros. A friendly regular from the neighborhood struck up a conversation about the revitalization of the area. Modern decor of wood and steel is comfortable and includes a seating area of ~15 tables as well as a decently sized bar. It looks like there's also outdoor sidewalk seating when weather permits.

Q - Everything we tasted, both food and drink, was well-made. Solid ingredients in the beers. Artisan approach to charcuterie and cheese plate. Our glassware included portion markings.

S - Friendly and attentive. We were offered free small but adequate samples for everything we so much as verbalized considering. Meat, cheese, and condiments were identified when served. Growler was filled as part of our table service. If anything, we felt a tad rushed to sign out, but that could have to do with the arrival of a brewery tour party bus, which we discovered at our next stop is quite the booming business in Indy. Overall, service was great.

S - Not only is there a relatively broad selection of house brews for the size of the brewery (10 on tap at the time of our visit), the taproom also offers another nine guest taps of quality beers as well as a handful of highly regarded bottles. What I especially appreciated is that they offer all of their own beers in both pint and 1/2 pint sizes (high ABVs only come in 8 oz.), allowing patrons to taste a wider selection of beers, and do so with a glass size large enough to get a good sense of each beer.

F - There's a nice selection of small plates and sandwiches that pair well with the available beers. Our meat and cheese plate included two choices from local charcuterie purveyor Smoking Goose and two cheeses, along with a sliced baguette and condiments of a stone-ground mustard and fig jam. Everything was delicious and complimented our beers well.

V - An excellent value for the craft beer dollar. I'll be making an effort to include a Black Acre stop whenever I'm in the Indy area. They fill all 64 and 32 oz. growlers - they just slap a sticker on it.

Best Brewpub in Irvington!
Keep in mind, this is a Beer bar first, and a food place second.

The food menu is short and to the point intentionally. The food selection, although limited to about a dozen awesome snacks, is of the highest possible quality.

On Sundays, they serve organic, locally grown, farm-fresh, dry-aged, sunnyside hip, baykahn schmammiches. NOM.

They offer plenty of guest beers as well as house brews. Great stuff.
