Somewhere along the line of this blogging journey I decided it was a-ok to write up restaurants we’ve been to before, so when we decided to hit up 20 Tap before the Indy Fuel home opener it was a no-brainer to give the So-Bro spot some love. 20 Tap’s been around for a few years now, offering up a revolving list of interesting draft beers and superb, gourmet pub-style grub. This particular visit we made a really awesome discovery- they’re also kid-friendly! Nice that there’s a place to get quality food and out-of-the-ordinary beers with a little one in tow. We started with beers (duh) – Alpha King’s Yum Yum for him and the house pumpkin ale for me. Both good choices! Their focus is primarily local beers but they also feature a good variety of craft beers from across the country.
We were talked into an app by our friendly waiter who’d recently relocated from Chicago and commented on our Blackhawks jerseys. And by talked into I mean, “Have you tried the cheese curds?” Sign. Me. Up.
Perfect. Plus you get 2 house made sauces for dipping; we went with sriracha and garlic aioli. I’m dreaming about these cheese curds 2 months later.
We’ve been to 20 Tap before, and everything we’ve tried has been amazing. Their pickles are allegedly thebomb.com, but I’ll take Mark’s word for that. Pickles… BLEGH! Anywho. Their menu is constantly evolving with seasons so try not to fall in love with anything as it may not be there when you return. I was disappointed to discover my prosciutto, fig preserve, arugula, and goat cheese sandwich was no longer offered but the tostada was pretty awesome. Add to all this the fact that you can easily get dinner and beers for $40? Almost too good to be true. Get there early… The place fills up quick on Friday and Saturday nights.
20 Tap is located at 5408 N. College Ave, Indianapolis, IN (South Broad Ripple).
