I'm visiting on a Wednesday afternoon (2 p.m.) and there are less than 10 people here. Location is a tough one here. Even though it's within a half mile of city center, it's also in a fairly barren part of the city. The good news is there's plenty of parking. From the two beers I've had so far (and the excellent burger), I would say the quality is quite good.

Service is friendly and knowledgeable. Their menu is very good at describing what is in your beer. There were nine different beers offered on tap, ranging from Golden to a Quad. Something for everyone basically.

I ordered a burger (half price today). It would have been worth the full price, which still far cheaper than any place in Boston.

Limited choices with only 7 choices,however the hoppy beers are high quality. Quality instead of quantity.

Great service, their team invested the time talking about the brewery and their beers.

Pleasant surprise!

Stop #429 on my world brewery tour.

Located between the Fieldhouse and Lucas Oil stadium so a good "pre" location for events at either venue. I met up with a buddy and really wasn't focusing much on the beers. They had a good pale hoppy brew called Umpa Loompa (sp?). The service was over the top as the female server was training another gal. We sat outside on the small patio on a great early fall day.

Inside is very well done. We had dry rub wings with some sauces which were good.

Still looking for a go to brew pub in Indy as they are all good, not exceptional.

Cool space, cool logo. Lovely patio. Definitely a place to kick back and enjoy some conversation over a beer. But, be prepared to shell out a few bucks.. the flight was a little steep.

Beer was good, but lacked any kind of depth, a pale, an ipa, a golden, a shandy and a smash (single malt, single hop). Subtle differences but nothing drastically different. Seemed to be gearing their craft brew more towards those folks that will be imbibing Bud and Mich Golden at the nearby stadium rather than those who really enjoy craft brew.

Overall, worth going back, but, could step up their beer game to match their business sense.
