3floyds has the best beer around. They also have amazing food!! They don't have the best service in the world but it is not the worst service either. They also have a TO GO Counter to buy beer to go and merchandise from. I highly recommend going to 3floyds if you have the chance!! I can't wait to go back myself!!

Awesome experience! Plenty of amazing beer on tap including the standard year round Zombie Dust and Gumballhead. Death metal on the speakers, but not too loud for conversation. Cool, outgoing, and helpful bartenders with good knowledge of craft beer. Not a huge menu selection, but really amazing food that isn't too expensive. A great time at a place as unique as the beers they brew!

I have been excited to visit this brewpub for years and when I finally did they were very rude and had way too many rules. They refuse to accommodate any request that might make them work a little harder and their service is slow and unfriendly. I wont ever go back. I have had bad service in the past but this was like meeting your hero and getting punched in the face by said person. Sorry 3 Floyd's but you have lost a loyal customer.

I try to get to 3 Floyds every chance I can. I live about 2.5 hours south west of the pub and since this seems to be the only place where you can get Zombie Dust and Gumballhead in any real quantity, it's worth the trip. My friends and I have made it a bi monthly trip for the last year or so. The beer selection is fantastic. Normally have quite a bit on tap and get to try limited runs. The restaurant is good, but nothing I'd write home about. They want to have an exotic twist on bar food cuisine and being so close to Chicago, others are just doing it better. Prepare for a long wait. Have gone on the weekends and you should expect at least a 45 minute wait. The last weekend trip I made, we waited for 1.5 hours. Even went on a Wednesday once and waited for 40 minutes. The place always has a crowd. The eating area is always very clean and the bar has a ton of interesting trinkets all around that really could keep you finding new things for days. The staff have always been attentive and very friendly as time allows. They are serving around the clock. Any merchandise bought such as shirts and glassware have been high quality and have held up through multiple washes.
Let's face it, It the beer you're after and the availability down right sucks. Do not prepare to get your favorite beer on a Saturday night. Stock has run dry. They almost always have Robert the Bruce, Alpha King and Pride and Joy. But, if you're looking for Zombiedust, Gumballhead or whatever the latest bomber bottle is(War Mullet is AMAZING!), go on a Wednesday or Thursday as they most likely will have a decent stock on hand. Just remember...Ugh...2 Case limit.

World class beer, world class food, world class beards, world class tats. Easy ride from Illinois if you can survive the highway of death(Indiana toll road). If it snows good luck! Just hop in your V8 interceptor and you'll be ok. They don't refill bombers so don't even try it!

Somewhat eccentric. Everyone comes here for the beer obviously. But once youre in, youre hooked. With odd, random objects all over as decoration, you will find yourself forgetting about your phone in order to take in the atmosphere. Having been there several times, its somewhat of a more hardcore version of Vegas, in the sense that there is stimulation wherever you turn. There might be a rerun of "Pee Wees Playhouse" on a bigscreen tv while Rob Zombie is blaring over the speakers. The food is amazing quality. From someone who tries to eat local, fresh, non frozen or processed foods, its great that a place with such great quality beer also takes that much pride in the food they serve. The staff is very friendly, although they look like they just left a biker/tattoo/piercing convention. Their knowledge of the beer and food, and quality of service, is top quality. Truly one of my favorite places to visit whenever Im in the area.

Everything I imagined it would be and more. A bit cramped and inconvenient waiting situation (long wait times, no standing room)are the only downsides. Awesome aesthetic. Excellent draft selection. Recommend War Mullet, the bacon fat popcorn and cheddar wurst-came on a pretzel bun.

This is my homer brewery. But 3F beer reputation speaks for itself. The beer is always beyond your wildest dreams. Are indidvidual wait staff members snobby once in awhile...yes, but that's the exception, not the rule. Does the death metal thrash get tiresome on occasion, yes...but other than these small complaints...the brewery and beer are PERFECT!

Love FFF brews! Do NOT love the wait for a table. Seriously. The wait here is worse than Kuma's Corner. At least with Kuma's you can get a drink at the bar and hawk a bar seat within 15 mins if there are just 2 of you. Not so here. Last time we actually went to a nearby BUffalo Wild Wings to have a couple of beers while we waited.
It's hard to give a high rating on selection because they are mostly limited to their own beers -- the good news is that it is mostly great and they usually have several on tap that they either don't bottle, or bottling is very limited. Most of the food I've had has been pretty good as well. Ask for no oil on your tortillas if you get the tacos. You'll thank me.

We arrived about 30 minutes before the brewpub opened to find a large line snaking into the parking lot from the main entrance. This was no special event day, but apparently the place is always packed. Luckily it was a balmy 50 degrees and sunny in small-town Indiana that day, but I wouldn't brave the elements in the middle of winter for it! Squatting beneath the bulbous Munster water tower, the brewery building is essentially a large warehouse with an attached small brewpub. There is a pub entrance and a second, smaller, door for walk in bottle sales. A few minutes before official opening, an employee, using his best carnival barker's voice, explained the rules to those of us in line. He explained the free tour times and allowed us to sign up for them. Interestingly once in the brewpub, if your tour time comes up, they will save your seat for you until you return. A nice perk since tables are hard to come by. I do have to say, that the staff was great and despite being busy they really knew how to deal with crowds.
They offer samplers of their four "regular" beers: Dreadnaught IPA, Alpha King Pale, Mild and Robert The Bruce. All are good beers but RTB is far and away the best--a wonderfully malty and complex Scottish ale. They had an extensive list of other beers, and offered most in full or half pints, though some were only served in 8 oz snifters (mostly double IPAs.) I enjoyed the War Mullet and Permanent Funeral (both DIPAs) very much. Bryan and I were very surprised that in addition to over-the-top hoppy, the brewery had several very restrained examples of classic Continental beer styles like and Oktoberfest (Munsterfest) and Schwarzbier (Das Kleine Schwarz Einhorn). Several of the beers on tap were collaborations with Metal groups, and similarly themed loud Metal music pervaded the pub.
We hit the free tour after our drinking was done. You get what you pay for. The entire tour took place in about 15 feet of warehouse space. Our tour guide was good and knew his stuff, but this was a very fast tour that barely scratched the surface of such an infamous brewery. I did like the artwork on the walls, including some old D&D art from the Dungeon Master's Guide of my youth. Looking at the bourbon barrels filled with future incarnations of rare Three Floyds beer was intriguing.
