there are a couple of brewpubs downtown that should be in walking distance. Ask the front desk and they can help with what is close.

I recommend Flat 12. I met a couple of the brewers a couple weeks ago, real nice guys and great beer.

Enjoyed some final jazz, food, and beer @ slippery noodle. great recommendation! The HD Net show 'Drinking Made Easy' will also be there next week, cool talking with the staff about what they are planning.

We also went to Rock Bottom Brewery for a quick pint too, nice little place!

It is a bit of a walk from Crown plaze, but the Tomlinson tap in the City market has a great selection of indiana beers.

Flat 12, Triton, and Fountain Square are downtown. Fountain Square brewery is relatively new but I just had their blonde a few weeks ago and was blown away.

If you like English style ales I recommend the Chatham Tap downtown as ales although it is not a brewery

If you can make it to Broad Ripple you have to go to the Broad Ripple Brewpub and have an ESB. It's ranked 8th on BA in the ESB category and definitely lives up to that hype if not more. It is as close to a true British pub style ESB you will ever find stateside. Brugge in Broad Ripple is also very good. Fantastic food at Brugge and some good Belgian style ales.

Edit: In between downtown and Broad Ripple there is also Twenty Tap that has actually 31 beers on tap from breweries all over Indiana and a few from the greater Midwestern region. Highly recommend it. Have a cuban sandwich while you're there and you can thank me later.

Broad Ripple Brewpub is my favorite place to drink in the state. like the guy above me said: the ESB is always on cask and always worth drinking 2-3 pints. simply amazing. i always get a scotch egg pizza with it although last time i got the brisket sandwich with pemento cheese. solid choice on my part

while you're out there, you outta head down the Monon Trail and stop off at Brugge Brasserie. they always have one of their own sours on tap. i was there this last weekend and it was their Pooka (boysenberry sour). my wifes favorite.

Thr3e Wisemen is right across the street but outside of their food (pizza is awesome) their beer sucks. their double ipa comes off as a pale ale.

i've also heard good things about Twenty Tap. we always have the kids with us and i've been too lazy to call and see if kids are allowed in

I have not had the scotch egg pizza, but the scotch eggs are amazing.

They are. Just don't go on a Saturday night. There's always a pretty long wait for a table. They're closed on Sundays but IIRC they do a $3.50 pint special on Tuesdays.
