    Beer selection is insane - big bar and eating area. Service was fantastic! Pizza and Wings didn't hit the "best ever" level but solid 8/10. Will be back next time I'm in area

    Funny finding a place like this in a strip mall. The joint offers more than 100 beers from around the world, pizza, and sports on TV. Snag a Bitburger, and soak up all America has to offer.

    The Hermanaky sauce on the wings is great! Second best wings in the state, you can get bone in or boneless. I hear their pizza is awesome too.

    My night started at TGI Friday but I left after poor service. The night definitely ended well because of Ale Emporium. So many different beers! Definitely coming back.

    What can be really said about this place that hasn't been said? Great beer selection for both tap and bottle. The food is good, for bar food. Parking however, your worst nightmare.

    Great beer selection! The "On deck" beer list are not tapped yet, they may have bottles though. The "On tap" beers are available on draft.

    Best pizza around and the Herman/Hermaniki wings are some of the best you'll have. Over 100 beers with plenty of space to go around.

    Watch sports in the second room. Bigger area and you can see about 26 different televisions depending where you sit. Sports overload.

    Came in to pick up a pizza, because my awesome wife says they have the best pizza in Indy. Anyway, the pizza wasn't ready so the manager bought it and gave me a gift cert. Awesome!

    I'm unsure of the ALE laws in Indiana as a visitor, but I was rudely kicked out of this establishment for not having my ID. I'm glad I don't live anywhere near this place.
