Nice location in Broad Ripple, within a couple of blocks of Barley Island and Brugge. The atmosphere is medium classy, nicely lit and decorated but unpretentious; it's basically a higher-scale pizza joint with craft beer and home brews. The crowd was friendly white professionals in their 30s and 40s, and the bartenders knew a decent amount about all the beers on tap.

There was a great selection of bottles and cans from other breweries (with a strong focus on Indiana beers, natch) and about 8 house beers on tap. I didn't get any food, but the pizza looked and smelled good, and you're given ridiculously salty popcorn just for sitting down.

When Thr3e Wise Men are brewing well, their beers are quite solid. But, as I noted in my Golden Zoe review, they seem to have some quality control issues. So it's probably a good idea to ask for a sample before you commit to a pint, even if you know full well what an IPA should taste like.

Overall, though, I really enjoyed my time here. I was by myself--didn't plan on stopping by--but had no trouble starting conversations with the locals. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood, which is rare on a Monday in December, and I took that as a sign that this is the sort of place that treats its regulars well.

A great place to go get some very good craft beer and some very good craft eats. With a tap list of 10 of their own creations this is a great place to try some new beer and grab a bite. The brewery's ambiance and ascetics are very similar to their sister franchise Scotty's Brewhouse with much more brewing paraphernalia present such as their multiple 15-35 BBL conical SS fermentors. They have a more "artisan" spin on bar food but sandwiches, wings, pizzas, and the like are very good. I had the chicken parm sandwich and it was very good and a deal. I had the Hop Head Farms Pale ale with it and it was a very good compliment that was balanced and flavorful.
