Above average. Good beer. There are 6 regular beers on tap here. Indy blonde, Big Red IPA, Total Disorder Porter, 71 Pale, Hefeweizen, Buttface amber, and three seasonals. Plenty to choose from for any pallate. Friday happy hour gets busy (half priced growlers). Nice brewery/restaurant. Menu changes often and plenty of gourmet choices. Also good bar aps like corndog pops and boneless buffalo wings. Nice brew pub. One of my favorite stops in Fishers.

A: typical bar restaurant decor and atmosphere. Quiet place to eat. It wasn't busy at all while I was there. Nice bar area and plenty or room.

Q: good quality. Everything was clean and fresh.

S: out server was great. We had everything we needed and were checked in often. Smiles from the entire staff. Great experience.

S: selection was average. Lots of food choices but lack luster on beer choices. I would like to see more brews on the list for dining at a brewery.

F: food was average. I had a fried tenderloin that was good but not great and my wife got chicken Mack-n-cheese that was a bit bland.

V: bill was reasonable for two dinners two pints and a beer flight. Worth the price for sure.

I went to the Ram this past week to meet some friends before a concert. My review is limited to an hour spent in the bar area and a few of the brewery's own beers drank, and no food. First I will state that the bar area is HUGE! Multiple TV screens including a projector screen that sure could have fooled me if it wasn't high-def that was close to a 100" screen. Sitting at the bar in front of that display is exactly were I would want to be on a football Sunday. The beer selection was phenomenal, between the brewpubs own beers and a large selection of macro and micro brews. I was particularly thrilled to see PBR on the chalkboard listing their beers, as that just shocked me in a brewpub.

I tried two of their brews, one a Belgian Wit style the other a Red IPA and both were good. The Belgian Wit was very light bodied and had a nice citrus flavor, which was perfect on a day with temps hitting close to 95 degrees. The Red IPA was a slight disappointment to me. It wasn't bad by any means, but it felt lacking in some way. It had a very light body and strong hop aroma, but really seemed to be missing a malty backbone. That of course can come down to a matter of preference and opinion. As to presentation, the beers were served in what appeared to be 20oz imperial pint glasses, with the Belgian being slightly hazy and the Red IPA being a wonderful clear reddish amber hue.

All in all, if I didn't live a minimum of 45 minutes away, I would get there on a very regular basis and would absolutely recommend it to anyone living on the North side of Indianapolis.

This is a satellite location to the Ram located in downtown Indianapolis. All their beers are kegged downtown and shipped here, there is no brewing equipment on premise.

It's been a few years since I was in the downtown location, but it seems like this one is a little more upscale in terms of the ambiance. They have a basic offering of about 6 ales (the typical blonde, pale, amber, etc...) and then a couple of seasonals. When I was there the seasonals were a dunkelweiss and an imperial stout. They do offer an authentic german style hefeweiss all the time which is nice since most places do the blander american variety of wheat ale.

The major downfall for this place was the fact that my dunkelweiss was promptly served in an ice cold mug. So cold in fact, that underneath the two inches of slush was a beer that I could hardly taste. Once it warmed up it proved to be a decent dunkelweiss. The imperial stout was tasty too, once I made sure they didn't serve it in an ice cold mug.

I also thought it was not a good sign that in addition to the house beers they had Coors and an A/B product on tap. I like brewpubs that "force" their patrons to drink their beer only, especially when they offer a house brewed light and a blonde ale that surely any american beer fan would be alright with.

Overall this is an OK brewpub, but not one I would go out of my way to pursue.
