Stopped by around 7 PM on a Thursday. The area is a little weird. There's nothing much there, for one. Secondly, what's going there seems sort of like one of those gated retirement complexes, only it's designed for young professionals. I dunno, maybe it'll be cool. Right now, however, it's nothing.

WBNA was on the TV, which is nice. Aside from that, the interior was very metal. Not in the Dio sense, but in the "lots of exposed beams and corrugated tin" sense, with warm tracklighting and slick, polished wood. It's a very new building that tries to seem old, and in spite of being ersatz it's fairly warm and welcoming (aside from the brewing area, which stretches way, way back and reminds me of the aesthetic from the movie _Brazil._)

The beer was solid. They don't serve food directly on the premises, but every day of the week they have a new food van out in the parking lot, and they have a big menu up on the wall letting you know which van comes which day. That's cool. They also had some prime shit on the guest taps.

The downsides are that the place had a little bit of an uppity vibe. The prices were ridiculous--pints and growlers cost more than the do at Three Floyds. The crowd was friendly, but most of them looked like they just got done golfing and/or had spent the day yelling at their secretaries.

A nice surprise while in Indianapolis for business. The Midnight Rail Nitro was fabulous , also a great Imperial IPA, Headsplitter. Friendly staff and owner! No kitchen, but they had a food truck out front with some very tasty pulled pork sandwiches .

Great industrial look to the brewpub. Exposed rafters and lots of dark wood and stainless steel. Awesome view to the fermenting tanks in the back behind the tap station. Staff was very friendly on my first visit. Tried samples of their Rail Splitter, Bourbon Barrel Sour Monk and regular version. Got a growler of their O-Rye-'n-Galaxy IPA. Definitely be back there when I get the chance.

My self and two others took the brewery tour on a Wednesday. I've been on numerous major and micro breweries so I really didn't expect anything special. However, this was one of the best tours I've ever been on.

The Director of Operations was the tour guide. He knew everything about everything, when it came to the brewery and their beer. Some guides are hired just to give tours, not this guy. Triton has been his life day in and day out for 3 years and it showed.

The tap room was pretty modern, with corrugated metal and dark wood decor. I liked it. The feel was more of an upscale bar. The downside, the beer prices seemed to match the upscale feel. Around $6 for a pint is on the high end of what I would expect to pay, but they will let you try a fair amount of anything on tap before you buy.

Overall, I would be lying if I said it didn't want to go back. Its a young brewery that is growing extremely fast so hopefully they keep producing good beer.

Small taproom, can get loud if it fills up. The bar only seats about 10 and that's where you want to sit if possible. The brewers are often right there, serving, explaining and answering questions. The servers are very knowledgeable too. Food in the form of pretzels is available and there's always a rotation of food trucks right outside the door and often will bring your order in to you. I have even seen families bring in there own food, like a pot of chili offering others a bowl during Colts games.

Now dig this Hoosiers: they have carry-out on Sundays!!! Some weird kink in our state-law allows them to sell carry-out on Sunday. So, the next time you get invited to a game and you didn't stock-up on Saturday, you don't have to drink the neighbor's Coors-lite.

Kid's are welcome in the taproom, the brew their own rootbeer, and they serve floats. The addition of a beer garden patio allows you to bring your 4-legged friend as well.

The line-up of 6 year round brews is usually augmented with 3-6 seasonal offerings, plus "guest" brews and ciders bring their totals upwards of 20 taps.

Triton is a great neighborhood brewery. They've been open a couple of years now and seem to be doing well. Main line beers are solid and consistent - my personal favorite is the hop heavy ''Rail splitter'' IPA. Picked up a 6 pack at Trader Joe's for some home sipping since Triton is a fair distance away from me (kudos to TJ's for stocking good local beer). Brewery has pints, growler fills and bottles available. They also always have a couple quality guest beers on as well.

The brewery itself is worth a visit if you are in the area. Triton is located in a World War I era mule barn (long, skinny barn-like, but the mules are long gone) on the former Fort Benjamin Harrison US Army base ''realigned and reused'' a few years ago. Brewery equipment came out of the now defunct Warbird Brewery in northern Indiana. Parking is easy and ample. Triton regularly hosts food trucks so a constantly changing menu is available right outside, but the brewery does not serve food itself. The tasting room is small but kid friendly and the bar serves a root beer that is outrageously good. Yeah, my kids are asking me to make growler runs for them now.
