Tried their own IPA (wanted to support local). Tasted off like the lines needed to be cleaned. And didn't taste like an IPA. Tried the Lawnmower IPA and tasted just like popcorn. Food was OK, but not good enough I'd want to go back.

I had one of the best brats ever here - and Excellent chocolate creme brulee (what?! at a pub?! heck yeah I say!). Their Stout was very good as well. Had half of someone's falafel which I then wanted more of - yeah that good. With about 10 people - everyone was happy with their meals (and drinks!). And strange... More

The beers here are tasty and I even took home a growler after stopping by for a Pale ale. The old time wooden bar and nooks and crannies in this place gives it a kind of charm. Half pub, half restaurant and all worthwhile. Next time I will make sure to visit longer

Such a friendly and inviting place for dinner. We sat outside on a nice fall evening and were promptly greeted and served. The beer was quite good and the food was amazing. The beer cheese is one of my absolute favorites! Other guests seemed to be having a good relaxing time as well. I would recommend this place as a... More

It had been several years since my last visit to the Broad Ripple Brew Pub, but it was just as cozy as ever. There's lots of seating inside and out. Four of our group rode down in the Monon Trail from both Fishers and Carmel (I drove down-parking is a challenge as it can be at any of the neighborhood... More

A Broad Ripple fixture since the 80s, good food, broad menu, and of course, excellent beer. Never had a problem here.

Started off with the Lawn Snake: a mix of Lawn Mower ale and pear cider with lime juice. Dinner was the vegan portabella wrap. Great music, calm atmosphere.

I would definitely return to the Brew Pub. We went for lunch and my companion was thrilled with the vegetarian selection. My lunch was chosen from a large selection (not vegetarian) and was delicious. They serve local sodas from the fountain with refills and what I had was delicious. We didn't try beer but they do brew their own brand... More

This was a brew pub long before they became so prevalent. Their beer is still very good and they serve maybe the best bloody mary in town. Food is good and service quite adequate even when they are busy which they often are in the evenings.

This was a great place for dinner. There were vegan, vegetarian and omnivore selections on the menu. Eating outside was nice and the Lawnmower Pale Ale was excellent. I had the Edamame burger and my daughter had Vegan Fish & Chips. Both entrees were delicious.
