You'll be hard-pressed to find a better selection of all sorts of craft beer in Indianapolis. They rotate their 38 taps regularly, and they have something for all tastes. I normally like higher ABV beers so it's hard for me to find a good selection of the strong stuff...but Twenty Tap ALWAYS has something that peaks my interest.

Their service is almost always very friendly and helpful, even at times when they get slammed-busy (which is often).

The small size of the place really makes you feel like a sardine stuffed into a tin at times, but it's a small price to pay to experience the absolute best craft beer bar in the city. If there's a better one I'd like to see it.

The food is reasonably priced for the quality you get, too. Try the Wake-Up Burger.

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. ..
