Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Broad Ripple Brewpub is known as Indiana’s first brewpub. The Brewpub looks like a typical English pub on the inside with dark wood paneling, a tin ceiling, and even a fireplace. Plus, it has a large patio that can seat up to seventy people during nice weather. Broad Ripple Brewpub has a diverse menu and several of their own beers on tap to compliment nearly anything you choose. They offer various starters, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pasta and classic pub entrees such as fish and chips and bangers and mash. Thankfully I scanned the entire menu as the very last item on it happened to be pizza!
Broad Ripple Brewpub has a few of their own pizza creations to choose from, but I ordered a more basic sausage and pepperoni one. My pizza ended being much better than I expected for something listed last on their menu. The thin crust was cooked in a way that allowed it to be somewhat firm but not charred, and I liked that. It had a good amount of cheese without me ordering extra, and I also liked the way it was cooked to a golden brown. The sauce and meats didn’t stand out as much, but there was nothing wrong with either of them. If everything listed on Broad Ripple Brewpub’s menu before the pizza is even better than it, then I need to have many more meals there and I recommend others do the same. As a cheese lover, I had to sample their cheese curds in addition to my pizza and will say that they were pretty tasty, so I haven’t found anything I don’t like on their menu yet!
