What a gem!

The place's name is unassuming. I've been to plenty of places with a couple dozen taps, and most of those taps are usually BMC or Diego-type bullshit. Likewise, their food is probably regular ol' pubfare. And when that place is in a cute, trendy little neighborhood meant to appeal to monied twentysomethings, well, you can forgive me for passing this place by several times before finally stopping in.

The beer selection is stellar. Indianapolis has a really great, really affordable beer scene going on right now, and excellent offerings are provided by each of the local establishments (trending mostly towards seasonals and one-offs, since you can get the regular selections at dozens of others places around town).

I went on a Tuesday night and had to wait a half hour for a table, so I assume they'd be really busy on weekends. Still, we were allowed to meander around the bar while we waited so that fine.

The food was pubby but excellent, with a surprising number of vegetarian and vegan options. I had a tempeh ruben that was probably the best meat-subsitute sandwich I've had in the state of Indiana. The waitstaff was friendly and the bar staff was beer-knowledgable, and the beer list is updated every single day.

Probably the best beer bar in the city.

20 Tap is a great beer bar in Indy. The place is a bit small, but everyone is typically friendly and there are choices of booths, tables, and the bar. They also have darts and a patio. This is a great place to get hard to find, limited release beers as well as local gems. They do a lot of tap takeovers with some really unique and limited stuff.

The staff has always been friendly and attentive and quick to take care of you. Additionally, they typically get the glassware for the style right. Pricing is reasonable and the food is pretty solid. Contrary to its names, there are actually almost 40 taps on hand and there is a bottle list as well.

Perhaps the best part about 20 Tap is that they keep their tap list updated daily on their website. If you are looking for a great place to have a beer in Indy, this is it.

Twenty Tap is a smallish restaurant/bar in the South Broad Ripple area with the space being divided equally between the bar and booths. Lighter wood tones with metal accents give the space a brighter, airy feel. The crowd was a lively mix of college students and after-work professionals.
The beer was all quality. Mostly American craft with an understandable and appreciated leaning towards the local and regional beer scene - Sun King, Outlier, Bier Brewery, Flat 12, Three Floyds. There were a couple of Belgians and a couple of national craft brews to round things out. Beers come in three sizes: half pint, full pint, and 10oz pours of speciality and high gravity beers. Unfortunately the beer sizes dictate the glassware, so most of the beers come in a standard shaker's pint. Personally I would have liked to seen the glassware tailored to the specific beer, but it is obvious the owners are attempting to limit their glassware costs.
Service was attentive and efficient, though not overly friendly or talkative. However, the bar was packed and on a wait during my visit, so I can't fault the service for taking care of business instead of chit-chatting.
Food was generally good, but nothing overly impressive. Pretzel was perfectly acceptable, though I found the crisp, lightly pickled vegetables to be much more memorable. Vegetarian bahn mi had great potential, but ended up being rather soggy and overly soft.
Prices were dumbfoundingly cheap: 3 pints, an app, and a sandwich came to a mere $25.

Awesome tap list. 40+ beers. Poor service. The place was moderately busy, but we waited 30 minutes or so for our server to collect the check. They didn't seem to know what they were doing as far as who got what food. They brought us another table's food at one point. They were also out of a number of beers that remained posted as available. ..
