the breweries
It’s all about the beer. Sounds simple, but it’s not. Too many times breweries start out with a great ale or lager, get a following, grow and forget what brewing is all about. At Mad Anthony, we will never forget. Because at Mad Anthony, it’s all about the beer. That’s the way it was in the late 90s when three friends decided their love of great beer and good food was more than an obsession, it was a calling. A calling that could become a career. It’s all about relationships.

When three friends, Todd Grantham, Blaine Stuckey, and Jeff Neels joined forces in 1999 the goal was simple: Brew great beer and serve it with tasty food in a fun atmosphere. And what started as a component of Fort Wayne’s eclectic Munchie Emporium has become one of the Midwest’s most successful brewpubs. According to Jeff, “I can’t think of anything better than being with a bunch of friends and having a business together.” For over ten years, that partnership has blessed Fort Wayne with everything from the Gabby Blonde Lager to Snowplowed Winter Ale and more than 50 beers a year. It’s all about doing it right. Visit Mad Anthony and you can see the difference. Whether it’s Todd’s never ending search for the perfect brew or Blaine’s endless stream of ideas (not all good), everyone associated with Mad Anthony has a vested interest in your experience… and your beer. Blaine notes, “We want to create an atmosphere, a vibe that is all our own. From the person serving you that pint, to the brew you pick up to take home, we want it to be the best possible experience. Best possible taste.” To that end, Mad Anthony does everything from brew to distribute to stocking the shelves, because in the end…

It’s all about the beer.
