Fort Wayne, Indiana Firsthand – Breweries


With the rich history of Fort Wayne
breweries, it’s just great to be a part of it. I think breweries are interesting
because you know most of them you can see the guys in the brewery side working,
you can see the beautiful stainless steel. And, once one craft brewery goes in,
another is literally it just it changes the whole city. Blaine Stuckey, co-owner
and president, Mad Anthony Brewing Company Fort Wayne, Indiana. I am Chad Hankey, co-owner of Trubble Brewing and head brewer. I’m Tyler Butcher. I’m co-founder of Kekionga Cider Company in Fort Wayne,
Indiana. We’re currently located in an original cider mill from the late 1920s.
With all the breweries coming up we just decided – hey let’s go a different avenue
and let’s try cider. Instead of just Mad Anthony being the only one waving our flag over the past 20 years, in the past few we’ve had five other breweries open up
in our city let alone the few that are right outside – it’s made it a good beer
destination. Yeah, Fort Wayne has seen huge growth. I recognized it since Parkview (Field) went in, our local guys with all these projects I mean they just keep growing
Fort Wayne. But, we have the craft breweries, local wineries, now the new
distillery, and the neat thing is we all work together. Collaborating on either
using our barrels aging our products in each other’s barrels, actually distilling
our beer to create a hop whiskey. That’s the whole point of this, you know it’s kind
of keep adding to the flock, keep it going, keep it growing. Fort Wayne’s a
fantastic place to come drink local handcrafted beer!
