Among Indianapolis apartment-ites, there are a number of different varieties of beer drinkers. From the casual Bud swiller, to the those who only sip on the finest in imported brews, different people drink beer in different ways. For those always on the search for the next great beer, you have to make a stop in at the Broad Ripple Brewpub, where all the beers are brewed by hand, and served along with a menu full of delicious food. Whether you're in the mood for a casual ale, or more in the mood for the more sophisticated taste of an porter, you'll find something to please every pallet at this beer wonderland.
There are a wide variety of microbrewed beers on draft at this location, covering a wide range of styles and flavors. For those in the mood for a refreshing, thirst-quenching flavor, try out Lawn Mower Pale Ale, with a light, lightly sweset flavor with delicate hops. For those looking for a bolder, hoppier flavor, make sure to try their India Pale Ale, containing a bit more alcohol than the others. For a real British taste, like one would hope to find at an English pub, try their Extra Special Bitter, with plenty of malt and kettle hops, combining delicious sweetness with plenty of hop aftertaste, which won the gold medal at the 1991 Great American Beer Festival. Another of their award winners was their Red Bird Mild, an amber brew with fragrant malts with medium body, winner of the Bet of Show at the Indiana State fair in 2003. There's even something for those environmentally conscious of Indianapolis apartment-ites, their Organic Amber Ale, made with only the best certified organic Traditional hops imported from New Zealand, mixed with crystal malt, for a medium bodied amber that's just a little hazy. They also have a number of cask beers available, including the Diving Duck American Brown, with a complex malt profile, light to medium body and a chestnut brown color, and the Monon Porter, with coffee-like flavor with malty, chocolate undertones, and a deep, dark mahogany color. No matter where your tastes may lie, there's something to please and excite at this brewpub.
From the casual drinker to the gourmand, from to the pro, everyone will love the beer they find at the Broad Ripple Brewpub. Indianapolis apartment-ites looking for something a little bit different from the usual bar room brews should get ready for a beer adventure like no other in town.
