Do you love craft beer and good food? Then you'll love exploring the Northern Indiana Beer Trail, a network of more than two dozen of our area's best local breweries. Traveling the trail gives you the opportunity to try new beer, meet people, collect stamps, and explore all the great things Northern Indiana has to offer.
Our Fort Wayne real estate agents love trying new breweries on the beer trail. Since so many of them are pet and kid-friendly and offer comfortable outdoor seating, visiting breweries has become a top weekend activity. Here are six of our favorite spots on the Northern Indiana Beer Trail:
- Hop River Brewing Co. - 1515 N Harrison St, Fort Wayne, IN 46808
One of the best beer halls in downtown Fort Wayne can be found at Hop River Brewing Co, a popular place to grab a beer and snack. You'll find 10 local house beers, 2 regional guest beers, and a food menu with appetizers, sandwiches, and salads. If you enjoy your time at this great local brewery, we recommend touring one of these Fort Wayne homes for sale just down the street.
