16 Nov Broad Ripple Brewpub Celebrates 25th Anniversary In Style
I’m honored I had the chance to attend a historic event for the oldest brewpub in Indiana. This year Broad Ripple Brewpub turned 25. This monument has held its own for decades, now continuously producing well-made brews in the ever growing market. Us Indy residents are lucky to have access to such an establishment.
I arrived thirsty and with an empty belly. I’m a sucker for bar food and the classic cheeseburger made my heart sing. This paired perfectly with the Celebration Ale brewed for this special event. The Celebration Ale was an English Barleywine that balanced caramel malt with a dark fruity tart finish. This was also available bottled in bombers, the brewpub’s first ever, which marks yet another historical event.
Overall I think Broad Ripple Brewpub speaks for itself with the variety of brews and fantastic pub food. They were able to set the stage for the Indiana craft beer scene. I made it a point to say thank you to all of the Brewpub servers that made the business everything that it is today. This is a place that should be on every Indiana Beer Geek’s Bucket list.
