Stop #376 on my world brewery tour.

Along with Three Floyds and New Albanian, this is one of the top three brewpubs in the state.

I grew up in Indianapolis when Irvington was a declining blue color area of the city. What a surprise to find this gem in the historic gentrified heart of a city within a city.

Plenty of parking around back. No food but they have a food truck out front with printed menus at the tables. About a third full during my visit on a Monday early evening. Mare sure to check hours before visiting.

Can see a tank or two from the back outside and across the bar. Probably qualifies as a nano brewery as the boil tank looked no bigger than 2 or 3 barrels.

Had a flight of all their beers plus 8 oz of the DIPA.
Blond, amber, 2 browns, porter, holiday spiced, and Russian imperial stout.
The amber, RIS, and DIPA were outstanding. I've been avoiding DIPA's lately as they're usually cloying, muddy, and too sweet. This was one of the best, well-attenuated DIPA's I've had - on level with Pliny from Russian River. Yeah, I said that.
The RIS was creamy, roasty, and delicious. Both of these high alcohol beers had no fermentation flaws in terms of detecting the alcohol or off flavors.

The only drawbacks I came up with was their guest tap list, while good, could have benefited from other great Indiana or regional beers. The server was friendly but when I asked a question or two about the beer, she didn't know and didn't bother asking one of the guys who kept coming around from the brewing area.

Highly recommended and they're on my Indy brewery rotation.

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.
