Large place with multiple rooms and a patio, very eclectic. Service was friendly and food looked good, although I didn’t eat. Decent sized beer selection, primarily their own. Beer was average. Nice stop but I don’t think I would pop in again.
(Visited 05/2015): Mad Anthony’s Fort Wayne brewpub is on Broadway and Taylor on the southwest part of town. There is a parking lot next to the building.
A patio is outside, and the inside opens to a table seating area, with a bar running along the rear. Checkerboard floors, beer related stuff on the walls and hanging lights (and a wooden propeller) in the dining area. The beers on tap are listed on a board behind the bar.
In terms of beers, Mad Anthony carries around 20 on tap. Aside from the year-round flagship beers they have a lot of seasonals, and samplers are available. On my visit the selection included an Anniversary Ale, Sour Ginger, Hopsquatch II, Bent Rim Black and a Honey Cream Ale. The beers were all slightly above average to decent with nothing standing out in particular one way or the other.
Service on a weekday lunch was good. The server was friendly and knowledgeable about the beer menu.
Food at Mad Anthony is pretty good, my colleague and I both enjoyed our lunches.
Overall the beers at Mad Anthony are lacking in some areas but it’s a nice location with a pretty large beer list and solid food. I would go back.
This place has kind of an old-timey diner feel. Pleasant live acoustic band was playing on this Saturday night, a little patio is available too. The bartender was great. It probably helped that there were only four patrons at the bar. Beer selection has a little bit of everything including a smoked amber ale which I enjoyed. The food menu is standard pub grub. My cheesesteak was tasty. Definitely worth a stop for some local brew.
I am an Indiana boy and am in Fort Wayne often for business, but have never been to this location, my loss. I was riding my V-rod to my mother’s cottage near Warsaw and stopped here. Off the standard path but the location is large and visible. Bar is old wood and has a large food seating. Server was very freindly and offered a sampler quickly and was good at discussing the beers. People came in and asked about the bike and offered food and beer recommendations. I had the grouper sandwich. Great. This would be a great addition to a beer tour from Indy up I-69 to Muncie, Fort Wayne, Marshall and turn right or left to finish the day.
Stopped in on an early Friday evening. The parking lot was full, but I took a cab here so it didn’t impact me much. Despite the full parking lot, I had no trouble walking up to the bar, sitting down, and ordering some beer. It was brought to me pretty quickly. I ordered a sampler and a pint of my favorite form the sampler and it was under twenty dollars. 9 samples and a pint for under $20 isn’t bad. The service was friendly and one of the bartenders seemed to be knowledgeable. Overall, it was a decent experience, the quality of the beer just wasn’t all that great.
came here since summit brewerks was a dog pile of noobs and I did not want to eat a hot dog with PBJ. Large seating and bar area near the heart of FWA. Not much of a crowd. Menu was the same as the Mad Anthony’s in Warsaw. Beer selection was also the same. Nothing wild or crazy but a few solid drafts for sure. I ordered the brats which were good, service was adequate. I may be back, hopefully my travel to fort wayne stops and people learn how to railroad otherwise I will be myself some more until people resign. they we can get some where.
My brother brought me here while I was visiting Fort Wayne and I was very glad. The beers were all very well produced and the taps had a wide range to meet everyone’s need. The service was spot on and my waitress knew a lot about the beer with history to back it up. I recommend a stop if your in the area.
The main Mad Anthony’s is on Broadway and has a real hippie/green feel to it. Food is good, espesially pizza and sandwiches. They have their own beers plus some other bottles for those not into craft brew. Nice selection of seasonals. If you have to go to Ft. Wayne, it is a must stop.
