So since our first visit over two years ago, things have changed vis-a-vis the popularity: no longer is it possible to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon there as we discovered on a cold February day. That was really off-putting, but we did manage to score a table at lunchtime on a Wednesday as our first stop on Dulcie and Aylwin's Big Beer Adventure vol V. Not a lot has changed in two years, except the food has improved - like where in a bar are you going to get haricot verts, prosciutto and a poached egg? And don't forget the mussels. No need to say anything about the beer part.

This place is one of the best in America. Totally weird it's in Munster.

Our first visit to FFF was DLD, which made for an insane experience, like trying to get into a night club in Piccadilly Circus with bouncers and girls sneaking in saying they had to use the lav. It was complete mayhem but quite amusing. So when we returned a couple of weeks later we didn't quite know what to expect.

It was actually remarkably quiet in the late Saturday afternoon and all the tattoos and piercings had been replaced by fairly normal looking people. We were shocked to see that some were not even drinking beer! How come? As I mentioned on my blog at the time, it's because the food is really good; I mean shockingly good for a place like that. Not fine dining by any means but quality and fit for the beer. So locals go for the food but don't necessarily booze.

Beer of course incomparable, with their own offerings superbly balanced by several guests. You can't go wrong.

Most of the time one can get a decent table, although the logistics are a little strange - it just about overcomes the fact it's stuck in this industrial park in the middle of nowhere.

One of the coolest tap rooms you will ever visit. Death metal, amazing food ( try the scotch egg and the Ramen), and $5 for an imperial pint of Zombie Dust. It is all assigned seating, even the bar, so there is no standing around.

Went on a Friday night so there was a wait. We were told 20-25 min so o figured I soulful go buy a couple cases of gumballhead to take home while I waited. As I'm walking back from me car I got a text letting me know or table was ready. ..only about 10 min wait. I've heard bad things about the service here and I didn't experience any of that. ..much the opposite for me. I thought the service was outstanding and even though they were busy the servers had no problem taking the time explaining a new beer to me or the food on the menu. Beers were outstanding and came out quick and the food was even better (try the wings. .best ever! ) overall my experience there was outstanding and I can't wait to go back again. Being in indy that means a long drive but worth it on the way to a cubs game or visit family in chicago.

This place is great and lives up to all the hype. They can't make a bad beer, and love being able to try a lot of their coveted beers on tap; which, in my opinion, is the best way to have a beer. Food was good. Staff is good and knowledgeable. Worth the hour wait to get in on a busy Friday night.

Went for Dark Lord Day so a bit skewed, but enjoyed it a lot. Fun festival, very good beers available for purchase in the brewpub and out, a very cool place. Love the metal influences, looking forward to going back on a "normal" day.

Awesome place, all kinds of cool kitsche all over the walls, almost intentionally kept really small. Quality top notch beers. Service can be spotty, again, intentionally kept sparse to keep that cool kind of high demand at times. They know people love their product.

Selection usually has 1-3 one off's you can't get in bottles. Great merch, hopefully you can get some bottles of hoppy stuff.

The waiting staff is a little too laid back, and the service wasn't all that great. They have a huge beer selection on tap and bottled, I've loved three floyds for years now.

Always busy and jumping, food is better than most, loud but what a mecca for craft beer fans. They recently remolded. Artwork on the walls were something I remember going ten years ago. I usually have a designated driver if I stay awhile. Go when they open.
