After 2 years in the planning, renovation and building stages, Hop River Brewing Company, in the historic Wells Street neighborhood, is opening its doors and its taps this Saturday.

The heart and soul of the Hop River enterprise is its brew house, at the corner of Fourth and Harrrison Streets, now producing at full speed, thanks to head brewer, Kevin Debs.

As Fort Wayne’s downtown riverfront activity continues to grow, Paris McFarthing and Ben Jackson are adding to the excitement, with a new business venture called Hop River Brewing Company.
