Second of two breweries that my girl and I visited on a trip to Chicago in July 2011. Our final stop on the way back to Ontario.

VIBE: the restaurant section of the brewpub is very cramped and uncomfortable. The chalkboard list of all the retail offerings is located in the dining area so you have to walk over and peruse the menu (disrupting patrons who are eating) or squint from the bar while you waste the server’s time. An awkward, inconvenient set-up.

SERVICE: although the host and one of the locals were nice enough, the bartender was a complete douche bag. I was buying beer to go and tried to order as quickly as possible, but because the menu was tough to see, it took me a couple minutes to decide which bombers I wanted. The barkeep made his frustration known by asking me to "hurry up." Since the beer is world class, and in light of the fact that I came here to grab my haul rather than West Lakeview Liquors (by this point far behind us), I tolerated his childish behaviour. But it was disappointing to receive such abysmal service.

SELECTION: every 3Floyds beer that I’ve heard of along with guest taps from Stone and Left Hand. I bought two bombers each of the Dreadnaught, Admiral Lord Nelson, Gorch Fock, and Arctic Panzer Wolf, two 6-packs of Alpha King, and one sixer each of the Gumballhead and Pride & Joy. These 32 beers came to $115, which is okay value given the outstanding quality of the brews.

OVERALL: if I were to return to Three Floyds in the future, I would snag some food and drinks in the restaurant section before purchasing any beer-to-go. Seems like this place is more focused on the brewpub front than the retail element, and my guess is that we would’ve received better service had we sat down and ate. I’m glad that I scored a bunch of brews from one of the best micros around; however, the bartender should be much friendlier to eager patrons who are willing to spend their hard-earned money here.

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.
