The Broad Ripple Brewpub was established in 1990 by Englishman John Hill, born in Middlesbrough in North Yorkshire, and his wife Nancy, a Hoosier native. It was Indiana’s very first brewpub (a restaurant that brews its own beer) when it opened and is the oldest operating brewery in the state. The Brewpub was designed to recreate a typical English pub with its dark wood paneling, leaded stained glass windows, decorative tin ceiling, and cozy fire place. The Brewpub has one of the largest outdoor cafes in Broad Ripple Village, seating over seventy people.

The Brewpub offers many things to many people. Lively conversation and camaraderie at the bar; a family-friendly atmosphere, where kids are very much welcome; good natured competition in our dart room; surfing the web or getting some work done while enjoying a hand-crafted beer or a relaxed meal enjoyed outdoors on a warm Summer’s night, while people-watching on the Monon Trail (and yes you can bring your dog).
