I had been wanting to try this one for awhile so my wife and I made it our destionation for our anniversary.
It is settled just off the canal in Broad ripple village and quite easy to find. The nice thing about this location it there is so much else to do around the area that you really could make a day of it.
We entered about 5:45 on a Saturday night and had called ahead, which was a good thing since there was only about a dozen tables in the dining room area but more in the bar area. It seemed very upscale and maybe a bit snotty at first but we quickly relaxed into the mood. We had a wonderful waiter, I have forgot his name but he was the only male on the wait staff. He was very friendly and very down to earth. We ordered beers first and was lucky that they had the two that I was hoping to try on tap that night. They usually only have 2 ot 3 beers on tap at any given time which could be a problem if you were looking for something else from thier asortment. I started with the Black and my wife had the Blonde. The black was complex and amazing while the Blonde was just average and a bit yeasty. We folowed with a Tripel each which was lovely and sessionable for the style.
The menu was very Belgium oriented and featured Mitrailettes(sandwichs), Crepes, Moules(mussels), amazing salads, soups, and Frites which are belgium fries. We had a sesonal cheese plate as an appetizer which paired well with the Black. I had the sausage Mitrailette w ed peppers and dubbel glazed onions. My wife had the chicken Mitrailette. Both came with fites and choice of 2 dipping sauces (I highly recomend the hot curry and garlic aioli). The meals were very good especially the frites.
Overall this was a great place for a meal or a night with friends. We will be back soon.

A: A friendly, hopping spot, but does not take reservations, so be sure to call ahead to get a seat in less than an hour. Very loud, so do not plan for quiet conversation.
Q: The place delivers. The beer and food are well crafted fare.
S: Somewhat lackadaisical or perhaps just harried, but ultimately not enough to put me off the place.
S: There was a wide selection of beers, including the Tripel that I had which was easy to drink, but with real punch.
F: The beer was very good. The food was great. Frites and their sauces were always delicious, the crepes were extraordinary, and even where items did not end up being my cup of tea, they were always well done.
V: No question this place is worth it, even if it is by no means cheap. A great place to get together with friends and have a drink and dinner.

Found in the Broad Ripple neighborhood, just north of Indianapolis, IN. Parking is kind of limited, but shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Seemingly "newer" 2 story building, which from the outside is rather unassuming - as is inside so I'll forego my usual decor listing. As mentioned, there are 2 floors, both belonging to the brewery. Downstairs is primarily restaurant seating with roughly 10 tables, and also with a small 6 person bar with 1 tv (kind of in a cramped area). Upstairs however has a very large 20 seat bar, with 6 four tops and 2 six seater high tops. The upstairs seems to be primarily for sporting events (2 tvs over the bar and one large projection screen) and spill over from downstairs. There is outside seating either on the patio downstairs, or on the deck connected to upstairs.
There are 10 taps; 4 are house beers (tonight is Harvey, Leopold, Triple de Ripple, Black), and 6 guest taps. Their house beers are pretty solid (although I wasn't in love with the Harvey as said in my review of it) and I'm always interested in trying their latest.
The service is kind of hit or miss. One guy can be friendly, one can be a bit stuck up, and one can be indifferent.
Overall, I fully intend on coming back in the future, because I do think their beers are that good. Pretty easy place to grab a locally brewed Belgian style and watch a baseball or football game - it's not everywhere you can do that.

Great spot with authentic belgian style beers. Their sours are phenomenal. Incredible food menu as well, many different crepes and mussels. Love the red curry mussels. Also some unique dipping sauces for your frites. The nutella crepe may be the best dessert in the city. An upstairs bar features some guest drafts as well that are equally strong.

I stopped by Brugge Brasserie for an early dinner while I was in town for work. I didn't know anything about it but it sounded like it could be good. I'm very glad I went.
I ordered the Belgian Style Mussels and Fries which were excellent!
They had 3 of their own beers on tap. I had to try all 3. Their Tripel was the best of the 3 offered. They also had a Sour and an IPA which were both good. They also had a few good guest taps as well.
The place was empty when I got there and started to pick up by the time I was finished. The layout is really cool. They have an outdoor patio area you can sit at.
The service was very attentive but not a lot of smiles out of the crew.
Overall I was very happy with my visit. I'll probably go back next time I'm in Indy.
