Ft. Wayne, IN has had a great history of breweries.
Up until prohibition we had probably two dozen or more.
The 60's-90's of cheep nasty beer killed off the remaining bigger breweries.
Berghoff - 1954
C.L. Cenrlivre/Old Crown - 1973
Falstaff - 1975/90
Fort Wayne Brewing - 1995
oyster bar brewery - 2003
Warbird brewing - 2009
we have two left.
Mad Anthony Brewing
Granite City (I think this is actually a chain restaurant...not sure if they brew on site)
Both of these are more eateries than Breweries.
I think the last few to close shows how hard it may be to not just start a micro brew but to keep one in business.
