This summer, The Pickled Pedaler began party bike tours in Broad Ripple on the first Wednesday of every month. We offer two Broad Ripple tour options. Both options are 2-hour tours, but the “Wise Pedaler” package also includes dinner! You can learn more about our Broad Ripple tours here.
In honor of The Pickled Pedaler coming to Broad Ripple, we’ve decided to put together a short list of our favorite places in Broad Ripple to grab a beer. Be sure to share yours in the comments below!
All of our Broad Ripple tours start and end at Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. Our riders love to pick up a plastic bullet fill before their tour heads out! Not only does Thr3e Wise Men brew some of the best beers in the city, they also serve up some mighty fine pizza, appetizers, and desserts! We love the classic lodge feel and the communal atmosphere.
Don’t forget! Our “Wise Pedaler” package includes 3 large chop salads, 3 large regular breadstix, and 3 large 1 topping pizzas.
All of our Broad Ripple tours also stop at Flatwater Restaurant. The waterfront deck is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious beer. Be sure to check out Flatwater for lunch or dinner too. The dishes are so unique and they offer a chef’s special every day so there’s always something new and interesting to try!
HotCat has a seriously extensive selection of beers on tap and in bottles. They also have a menu that makes our mouths water (a nacho burger?! Yes, please!). But what we love most about HopCat is that they are a major supporter of Indiana’s craft brewers. We suggest ordering off the Local 30 menu—which include beers from Brugge Brasserie to Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. to Sun King Brewery (and also many, many others from around the state)!
Old Pro’s Table (affectionately known as OPT) is Broad Ripple’s oldest Sports Bar, so you know it’s gotta be one of the best spots in the city to watch a game. We are huge fans of their juke box (which is always rockin’!) and Tuesday Trivia Night Fun. We also love that they keep Flat12 and Trition beers on tap—gotta love the local brews!
You don’t have to head to Fort Ben to enjoy a Triton beer (although, if you’re in that area, you should stop by and take their brewery tour!). You can now get all of Triton’s house ales and specialities from the Triton Forking series at The Triton Tap Room in Broad Ripple. We suggest grabbing a pint while enjoying the view of Broad Ripple Avenue from the patio and then grabbing a growler or 6-pack to take home with you.
With so many great spots in Broad Ripple to grab a beer, it’s hard to choose favorites but these places certainly top our list. Please share your favorite spot so we can add to our ever-growing list!
