#5 Union Brewing Company
At Union Brewing Company, our artisan ales are hand crafted two barrels at a time using time honored traditions, natural ingredients and traditional methods. Our beers are never filtered or force carbonated. They condition and carbonate naturally in casks and are hand drawn by authentic beer engines at the perfect drinking temperature to maximize all the flavors. (No, they are not warm!) We really like beer, and we love cask conditioned real ales. We think you will too! Website

#8 Broad Ripple Brewpub
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 is Indiana’s very first brewpub (a restaurant that brews its own beer) and the oldest operating brewery in the state. The Brewpub was designed to recreate a typical English pub with its dark wood paneling, decorative tin ceiling, and cozy fire place. The Brewpub has one of the largest outdoor cafes in the Village, seating up to seventy people when the weather permits. 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 or a game of bags in our parking lot during the warmer months; surfing the web while having a hand-crafted beer (we have free wifi); 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). Website. 

#9 Bier Brewery
THE BIER BREWERY AND TAPROOM is committed to the highest quality and best tasting BIER in Indianapolis. Our small size allows BIER to have the utmost control over the many different variables that go into brewing each hand crafted batch. The results have been delicious, and successful at various events. Website.
