Stopped by a few weeks ago while on business in the area. I didn't expect much given the other BA reveiws of the place. Frankly, "not much" is what I got. The place needs a serious remodel, particularly in the cavernous bar area. It looked like a lackluster effort to give it some personality and a retro 60's era factory look with a few old signs here and there, but the tables and chairs shouted "70's Holiday Inn banquet room". Lifeless and baron is another way to describe it. Then again, so was the beer. Now granted I only sampled their Ruby Raspberry Wheat beer, but coupled with the atmosphere, it told me all I need to know about the brewing talent. Lifeless and thin. Neither raspberry nor wheat in the nose nor pallet. Disappointing. The barmaid, in between mildly combative comments with one of the waitresses about the ingredients in a drink, did provide efficient service. Regardless, I decided to go elsewhere for a decent meal and a few beers. This Indiana brewpub has a lot to learn about brewing and decore. I may still give them a try a few years down the road should I be forced to return to Fort Wayne on business (god help me).

Stop #418 on my world brewery tour.
Sunday night near close. One bartender and a bit slow at first until the small crowd thinned a bit.
I did a flight of all beers which were good to very good. I recall the Mai Bock standing out as being very well done. I had the wings which were good but never spicy enough for my liking.
Would certainly stop back in next time I'm "in the Fort."

i go here a lot...I have the growler... I go for open mic night... etc.
this place has a great hippy pub feel.
the wait staff is amazing. these people do an incredible job, even when they are slammed
the beers are ... alright. I've had maybe 12 of their styles. none have ever been outstanding
they have 8 or more home made brews on tap. that's REALLY good for this town.
the food is fine. doesn't compare to granite city... not even in the same league as JK Odonells it's better than B'dubs or Applebees. the fried foods are hot and crispy, the burgers have plenty of meat, the pizzas have a nice crust (but take 35 minutes).
i keep coming back ... for the service and the atmosphere. and it's local. the food is always forgettable, but i'm never left hungry. the beers are always good and made on sight... my favorite of their beer is the winter Ale and the stout.
