been meaning to come here since my first few visits to the area. walked in to a long bar area, which was completely empty except for the chill bro working the bar. tap list was legit, with over 36 beers on tap and 12 of them three floyds. Menu was pretty much pizza/ bar food but the sausage roll was awesome. I will be back if I ever have time when I can chill around the Fort Wayne area.
Large tavern with multiple rooms and a patio. Service was very friendly and helpful. Tap list was expansive with lots of 3 Floyd’s. Food was pretty good. Only issue is the high price of sample tray. $15 for 5 is way too high.

Put prices on your menu! No prices on menu and I was shocked when my 2 beers were $15! Other than that its a great place. Largest selection of FFF I have seen outside of their own brewpub. Recommended for sure.
Was in Fort Wayne for a wedding. Ratebeer told me that this was the best beer bar in the city, so I took a cab (it was about 17 minutes away from downtown). Very impressive selection, tons of good taps, and a huge selection of Three Floyds, even. On one side, the menu is sorted by region, on the other, it’s sorted by style, very cool touch. One of the bartenders seemed to be serving us, she was patient and never kept us waiting long. There is a long bar with lots of taps, decent decor, and a separate dining area that I didn’t really check out. My company griped about the heavy metal that was being played, but it wasn’t very loud so I hardly noticed it, personally. I ordered a bunch of local DIPAs that all came in pints, I’m not complaining about that. I think most were $6. At some point we were handed a half-pitcher of Zombie Dust by someone, that was a nice surprise. A bit out of the way from Fort Wayne, but a very satisfying experience overall. I would have liked to spend much more time there.
This place has an amazing amount of taps just waiting to be tasted, there is definitely a beer for just about everyone here (lots of bourbons as well). It looks to be an average bar from the outside and also in the inside until you see the taps. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. The food menu consists of standard bar items but the ace kitchen staff knocks them out of the park when they prepare them. It was pretty amazing. Overall a great place and the outdoor patio is a nice option to have also on warm summer nights.
There’s no question about it. This bar has the best draft beer selection in northern Indiana. They get numerous great beers and are continually changing the selection. That’s the good part. On the other hand, I don’t know how the service ratings here are so high. Unfortunately I get consistently poor service. It’s slow. The staff often know little to nothing about the beers. The menus have no prices for what can be quite expensive pours.
My most recent visit was during a special tasting night with 15 beers from Bell’s. The food menu had been whittled down to just 3 items, presumably to make things go faster. It didn’t work. They weren’t THAT busy. We got a table immediately and a couple others were empty nearby. It took ages to get any service at all. Finally I flagged someone down. It quickly became clear that the waitress didn’t know anything about the beer, even the beers that were the feature for the special event that night. Of the food items, one was a burger and fries, but when we asked if we could just get the fries, we were told no. So they’re making fries to go with the burgers, but they can’t sell the fries separately. Slow was the theme of the night and we saw at least one table of people get up and leave because they didn’t get served at all. I went in wanting to have a couple beers and stay awhile. We left after one beer even though there were other great choices on tap that I’d have loved to try. It just wasn’t worth it.
Multiple prior visits have been almost as bad. It’s not a one night thing. I hate to knock an overall rating down so much when the beer is so spectacular, but there have been too many bad experiences.
An amazing little spot....easy access, friendly and knowledgable staff.....didn’t bat an eye at our beer geek conversations, comparisons and note taking.....gifted us with a little free swag and discounted T-shirts.....
Startling display of taps...if you can’t something that piques your interest here, go home to your own cellar and stay there...nice variety and rotation......
Just slightly pricy, but worth every penny.....6 pints, one flight of samples, 4 meals@90 bucks......had a fabulous time...Big thumbs up!

I feel compelled to update my original review. I still maintain the craft beer tap selection is the best available in this part of the state. However, over the last few months and visits, I’ve watched the quality of the food go from standard pub fare, to downright tragic. On my last visit, my entree was inedible, so I sent it back to the kitchen. The replacement they sent was no better, so I left the plate untouched and let my waitress know it wasn’t edible. The waitress made no attempt to offer any type of compensation, or get a manager involved, and I was still charged full price for the meal. I was pretty put out, because my tab included quite a bit of beer and two other sub par meals for my companions. Obviously, this also changes how I feel about the service. Having worked my way through college as a waitress, I know that being rude and unpleasant to the wait staff is out of order, but I was feeling rather tempted to throw a fit. The place is still a great destination for beer, and I absolutely love their BrewHaven festival in August, but buyer beware the food.
Great bar for Fort Wayne area. Their selection is pretty damn good, with a huge selection of dank beers on tap, somewhere in the 50s. Surprised to find some good sours here. This is a must stop for any beer fan since there really isn’t any other place with such a stellar selection in the area.
Easy to find corner location with street Parking. Quiet mid-afternoon visit with bar on right and another room on left with tables for food and beverages. Freindly bartender and she had good knowledge of beers and seemed to be bartender, cook and server and did all well. 58 taps and I had three new beers. Did not get to eat. Enjoyed the visit and this is the second time there.
