Went here on a Sunday night around dinner time. Fairly crowded with a good mix of clientele. There were college students, families, and retirees. Fairly cool decor inside and outside. Stand up tables made out of barrels and hofbrauhaus-esque style seating where you share a table with a few other people. They have a glass wall between the restaurant and brewing area, so you can see all the equipment.
Service was good. Even though we were outside, the waitress was courteous and fairly prompt. She knew about the few beers they offered, but not much about beer in general. She was even nice enough to talk to us about the other brewpubs in the area and gave us directions. They had about 7 or 8 beers of their own on tap. Tried a couple of them, most were average.
Overall, a good brewpub to visit in the area, but I'd make it a quick stop if I was there again. Friendly people and decent beer for the area.

Visited Thr3e Wise Men for lunch before heading up I-69 and east towards home Sunday. Thr3e Wise Men stands alone in front of a strip mall in the Broad Ripple area of Indianapolis. Walking in, the decor looked more like a ski lodge than a pizza place. Wood paneling and padded picnic tables stood out in the large open room. A large rectangular bar stood to the left of the entrance, and that's where we sat.
I opted for "Goose the Sandwich" which was a pizza dough bread filled with capocollo, mortadella, pepperoni, spinach, roasted red pepper spread, mozzarella cheese. (Goose refers to a local meat vender?) Homemade potato chips were served on the side. My brother ordered a small pizza "spicy something?" from the specials list. Both meals were good, but I'd say the sandwich was better than the pie. (not downgrading the za, the sandwich was just that tasty!)
I opted for a three glass sampler with Golden Zoe IPA, Centennial Martyr Double IPA, and Schweddy Ball-tic Porter. All were solid brewpub beers. The Schweddy was my favorite in both name and taste.
Our bartender was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. She was good with her customers and was quick in reacting when a growler she filled broke, narrowly avoiding soaking a fellow patron. No panic, just quick reaction, cleanup and customer service. (a reevaluation of their growler cleaning/filling procedure is needed)
Really great sandwich, good pizza good beer and good staff.

This is a large, modern brewpub in a strip mall in the Broad Ripple neighborhood. The interior is dominated by wood accents. When you walk in, nearly the entire far wall is a window that looks out at the brew kettles. A large U-shaped bar is to the left, which is where we sat on 3 of our 4 visits.
Three Wise Men features 6 or so beers on tap at any given time. True, it's not the largest selection, but it certainly makes it easier to decide. We sampled 4 of the 6 on our most recent back-to-back visits and took home a growler of the seasonal hefeweizen. All the beers were good but nothing terribly unique.
Food was good all around. We especially liked the dill chips, which were a good complement to the beer. The pizzas are also popular.
Prices were about average.
We were impressed with the service at the bar, which got busy at times, especially on Sunday, which is apparently the day when everyone--and I do mean everyone--comes in to get their growler(s) filled. Despite that, the bartenders were always prompt and courteous.
Three Wise Men is our favorite brewpub (so far) in the Indianapolis area. We make it a point to go there for a beer or two when we are in town.

(Visited 11/2011): Yes another brewpub in the Broad Ripple neighborhood (which is awesome), Thr3e Wise Men is located on Broad Ripple right off Westfield and right around the corner from Brugge. There is a decent sized lot.
The interior is well-lit and open with wooden benches and tables. Brewing equipment is easily visible behind glass from multiple locations. The bar is to the left of the entrance, and there are a few TVs. They also have a board listing the available beers.
As for the beers, there were 5 on my visit: Snow Bunny Blonde, Beneficence Pale, Two Lucy’s Blackberry Wheat, Golden Zoe IPA and Centennial Martyr IIPA. All of the beers are above average. They also serve 3-beer sampler trays.
Service during a weekday lunch was good. The server knew the beers and was attentive throughout lunch.
Food at Thr3e Wise Men is solid. Pizza, sandwiches etc are good.
Overall this is a welcome addition to what is already a target-rich environment when it comes to brewpubs.

A: Brewpub is about 1 yrs old, maybe a bit older. Looks like a giant beer log cabin, everything is wood on the inside. Glass wall allows patrons to see the brewery operation. Tv's everywhere, great place to catch a game.
Q: Good quality fresh beer. Bottle selection is kept currnet and rotated regularly. Have never had a bad beer.
S: Excellent service.
S: Usually 5-6 house brewed beers. One or two guest taps of a different/non-competitive style. Always one house beer on cask. Bottle selection is good.
F: Great bar food. Pizzas, calzones, wings. All very good and made fresh. Sides are a salad or kettle chips, which are amazing. Carry out special is a large pie and a growler for $20!
V: Very reasonably priced, especially if you go on a pint special night.
