On a long road trip down south, the girlfriend and I managed to make it 45 minutes outside of Chicago before giving in and going to a brewery for lunch. It turned out to be a great move given the quality of beer and food that we got.

Aside from the beer and food, however, the experience could have been a bit better.

The atmosphere was open and inviting when we arrived, but after the slow-to-react bartender approached us with a fairly aloof and stand-offish attitude that openness seemed to slip away just a bit.

The other complaint I had was that the selection, particularly in the to-go department was very limited. Managed to get a few Jinx Proof bottles out the door, but they were pricey and they were the only beer they had to go that I could not easily get anywhere in Chicago.

That said, there was one completely amazing beer that I had never been able to try before - the Behemoth Barleywine with Cherries - holy crap that was a good beer! It was served on tap and it was amazing. The only reason we even had it though was because one of the very friendly servers with giant gauge earrings told us we should try it and that it would only be available for a few days. I'm so glad that I did, but when I then asked the bartender for a growler he said it was only for on-premise consumption. I can understand that, but given that they were out of almost everything else, it would have been nice to catch a break there. I would have gladly paid the outrageous $35 price tag they had on the regular Behemoth for a growler of the Cherry, but no dice.

As much as I am getting down on the place, though, they are still one of the greatest breweries in the country, and on the planet for that matter. All of the beer we had was delicious and the food was surprisingly good. The burger (for those of you in Chicago) was Kuma's-esque and the Mac n' Cheese reminded me of the stuff at Shuba's on Southport and Belmont.

We'll be back again, I just hope we catch them at a time when they are better stocked and they have a bartender that isn't sick of people who are excited to be there.

Doesn't get much better than the tap room at FFF. What more could you ask for? Great food, amazing beer, great service.

Food is great. Selection is great, including many things that are draft only. Zombie Dust is always available. More seating than you would expect makes for reasonable wait times. Overall never disappointing and worn the trek from wherever.

Never had a bad experience- mainly because I go around lunchtime. Service has always been courteous and timely. Great list of house beers and guest taps and bottles. The food is great, pairs well with the beers. Decor is cool- toys, tap handles, comic book art, metal on the radio, a cult movie of some sort usually playing with no volume. Dark Lord Day is usually a blast. Try arriving at the brewpub when they open to avoid a lengthy wait at both the pub and the to-go kiosk. Long lines whenever Zombie Dust is available

I had a good experience picking up my beer. I have heard about their customer service being terrible, but the person who helped me was friendly. She does get bonus points for being attractive so the service wasn't quite as good as I'm giving it. The beer is great and this is a must stop if in the Chicago area.

3 Floyds is top notch. Amazing beer, great food and one of my favorite places to take a small road trip to. Can't get enough of their beer and their food leaves nothing to be desired. It is all delicious and most of the offerings are not your typical "brewery" fare. Check out their pizzas and their house made beef jerky. Both are unique and great. Oh and Dark Lord Day was fantastic.

Vibe is a combo of funkiness and trash metal so You better love Metal if u r gonna hang at 3F for any length of time. While not a metal fan I'll put up with it for the opportunity to enjoy the selection of 12 3F beers on tap. Also 3'solid guest taps available.

Doesn't brew enough beer to meet demand, blames Indiana laws, but instead of opening a facility in IL or MI they open a place in Denmark. They really love their fans. Let's open a distillery too!

Three Floyd's is honestly the best brewery I have been to. Most brewers have a flagship beer that is indicative of their best style of beer. It is kind of natural to be better at one or two styles of beer over others...the difference is that 3 Floyd's not only does every style well, they are also extremely innovative. There is no question that every brewery sometimes misses, but the ratio of hits to misses is amazing!

One of my favorite places in the world. The waits and lines are tough to stomach and the service could be better, but they have the best beer and food of any bar or brewpub I've ever been to. It's worth the wait and lives up to the hype. I stop in every time I'm on my way to or from Chicago.

Yup. All 5's. It really is that awesome. The food was insane. The beer lived up to its hype, and then some. The server we had was chill. I even saw a sticker from a really small brewery by my house behind the bar at three floyds (Bad Brewing Co. in Mason, MI).

Been coming here for years and still try and make it out once a month or so. Food is excellent (although the menu is a bit limited) and they always have several standards (Alpha King, Zombie Dust, Gumballhead) as well as several rotating taps and a few guest taps. The down side is that there is almost always a wait, especially on the weekends. I have waited anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

I stopped over here on my way to Indianapolis, back in mid October, mainly to pick up about two cases (that was their buy-limit, by law if I recall correctly) for some friends back home, but I stopped in to say hello and try a few things. I waited for 30 minutes or so to be seated, busy place and not even lunchtime, but it was worth it. I had Robert the Bruce scotch ale and Drunk Monk hefeweizen, both great beers. Let's just say I had to sleep it off before continuing my trek. I also had some sort of bizarre steak sandwich. It was a single piece of bread, followed by chunks of succulent medium rare beef, topped with the hardest hash browns I've ever had. I enjoyed it, but I wish the food menu had had a wider selection. I sat at the bar, just so happened it was next to a gentleman who was passing through on his way to a brewing school somewhere. Very memorable experience for me considering how few brewpubs I've been to.

Oh yeah! And how could I forget the loud music?! Not that I minded! \m/

3 Floyds is geared toward a specific crowd. Between the underground metal scene blasting on the radio, the 80's/90's B movies playing on the TV's and the tattooed staff they are clearing marketing towards a specific demographic that I am fortunate to be. I love the feel of the place and frequent the brewpub quite often. Although the staff gets a bum rap for past rude employees and entitled yuppies they are quite nice and very knowledgable of their menu. The food is out of this world and is just the icing on the cake of this gem of an establishment.

The Hype is Real, this place is amazing. Good people work there and that translates to everything. I could do without the death metal but different strokes for different folks!

Awesome food! and of course Zombie Dust is great, they also have several rotating guest taps that are usually pretty good. they have a mikkeller tap too which is the only place ive ever seen have. all around, a really solid place aside from the fact that its not very big and usually packed
