Hello,Question 1: The obvious answer is Mad Anthony, who Jason recently visited. Although they don't have a brewpub or sell directly from the brewhouse, Warbird's beers are also worth a visit. Indiana Beer also has a nice writeup on Fort Wayne beer locations. And although we haven't stopped in yet, Granite City is a beer option.
I'm traveling from Lansing, MI to Fort Wayne tomorrow (Sat 5/2) - just for the day.
Was wondering 3 things:
1. Can you direct me to an establishment in Fort Wayne that specializes in and sells craft brew?
2. Does Three Floyds distribute to Fort Wayne?
3. What other IN craft brews are out there that are a must try?
Thanks in advance for your help/advice!
Question 2: A search on World Class Beverages Beer Finder shows that Three Floyds Alpha King is available at nine locations in the greater Fort Wayne area. A heads up to anyone looking for Three Floyds beers in Indiana: look for Alpha King.
Question 3: All of them? The bottled Indiana beers that reach "would buy again" status from our roundtable reviews include Brugge's Black and Triple De Ripple, Barley Islands Beastie (Bourbon) Barrel series, most of Oaken Barrel's lineup, and Upland's Lambics, which surprised us with their further developing flavor when we recently revisted them. Mad Anthony's IPA is a favorite amongst many of the KOTBR - though we haven't reviewed it yet - and we're all quite fond of Warbird's Shanty Irish and Thunderbolt Wheat as nice sessionable beers.
Since we're all located in Indy, I can't give suggestions at to which Fort Wayne liquor stores are best, and I'm sure we're missing a few locations worth visiting. Can any readers weight in?
