Good prices for growler fills and lots of options 10-12 each week. I was there when the place opened and they have made some nice updates to the tasting room. There is always lots of beer options and it's rotating frequently. Now that they are canning some of their usual beers, it frees them up for more new options. Good beer, but hard to find personal favorites (chocolate mint stout) with so much rotation.

Just won two gold medals at the World Beer Cup!

Good beer but not a good location. Out by itself. The Indy Brew bus will take you there.

A nice cozy little brewery (yes, they actually have couches!) in a prototypical small industrial park. Bier Brewery is very easy to find, not far off the freeway (I-465), with easy parking. Ambiance was cozy, like I said. One TV showing the Colts game when I visited on a recent Sunday. They had 9 of their beers on tap the day I visited. The two cute girls behind the bar told me they rotate new taps every week, so in theory, every week you visit there will be a different set of nine beers, because they don't have any standard flagship beers. They have 100 recipes that they rotate through. I sampled most of the beers that were available the day I visited, and filled two growlers to bring home. There were no "knock your socks off" beers that day, but no bad beers either. A decent lineup, and a nice place. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

1.5 oz samples are free. no flights. pints are a tad overpriced in my opinion & served in a plastic cup. no food, but food truck outside. beer is above average to good. farmgal very good. tasting room seating consists of an assortment of mix/matched table, chairs, couches. service at the counter is prompt, but disinterested.

The pumpkin ale is hands down the best. They have a nice tasting room for small groups.
