I was there almost exactly 4 months late, in August. The review is from notes.

This place is a bit tricky to find. It's kind of buried in an industrial zone. Definitely worth finding though. The rooms are very cozy with nice couches around. We sat at the bar and ordered some fries which were pretty damn good and served in a cone like in Belgium. They have a ton of beers on tap. I was fortunate enough to try the Fantabulous Resplendence X while it was on tap. The bartenders were all very nice and helpful. Maybe I'll go back in April some time. (549 characters)

I've been to around 250 brewpubs in North America including a previous visit to 3Floyds a couple of years back when it was an infomal tap room with a picnic table. Three Floyds is one of the best in the midwest for beer.

We liked...

Playing movies on the wall (Ferris Bueller's Day Off ) with no sound.
No smoking - I love smelling my beer
Comfortable lounge feel in a bland industrial park setting
Well staffed and good service
Good selection of beers tilting towards Beligians
Ideal intial stop for trip to Chicago from the East (a very nice Hampton Inn around the corner)
The beers are all excellent*

*The Christmas ale was a little heavy on coffee and I would have liked more of a spice (ginger) approach. Just my preference. (734 characters)

I had the chance to visit the brewery on my way to a Purdue game. I had heard a lot about the beers and was very excited to give them a try. This place is hidden in the middle of an industrial park, kind of an interesting place for a brewery. I looked at it as built in cliental. It was a little late for lunch on a Friday and the place was almost empty. So needless to say the service was top notch, as was the food. I had heard about the beers but the food was just as good. I started with a Gumballhead and then switched over to a Dreadnaught with my turkey burger and garbagge fries. Both my brother and Dad were also very happy with their meals and beverages. Luck for me I was able to pick up some Behemoth and Alpha Kong in 22 oz. bottles from the brewery to bring home and share. It was a little pricey for the “to go” beers. Overall I’ll stop in at this place anytime I’m in town. Lucky me it’s at least once a year!! Three cheers for Three Floyds. (962 characters)

When I heard that they were closing (just kidding. I just had to), I wanted to make sure I had a chance to check 3Floyds out. A recent trip to Chicago for Thanksgiving offered me the opportunity to sit in lots of traffic and have one of the best pub experiences in my life.

My wife and I sat at one of the tables to the right as you walk in. The bar area was pretty occupied but I would love to have had a chance to sit there and hang out with other visitors. The design is eclectic and flat panels TV's play cheesy horror movies (Rocky Horror, Creep Show, etc). Some couches and regular and bar tables are located around the place. The beer selection was as complete as you could imagine. The usual suspects (Alpha King, Robert the Bruce, Gumballhead) are present but the real treats are the seasonals and special batches (BrooDoo, Dreadnaught, Munsterfest, Travisamo, the nitro IPA by new brewer.)

Service was good but was a times slow with beers and other beverages (not sure if the bar was backed up). Our waitress was knowledgable of the the beers and styles and helped my wife choose something different to try (my wife was getting hopped out). Beers were incredible and the prices ranged from $4-6 for most pours. The bottle and draft selection also included some guest selections (GI Bourbon County Stout, lots of Belgians) The prices of those were more expensive but understandable based on the rarity of things.

Food is not to be overlooked. I had a Royale with Cheese (cheeseburger) with frites. My wife had a steak sandwich. My burger was the best, juiciest, flavorful burger that I have ever had in a Brew Pub. The pizzas looked and smelled amazing (table behind us ordered them). Lots of standard pub fair but everything seems to be handled and prepared with care. Worth a trip just for food.

I didn't ask about growlers but they offered sixers of the usuals and 22oz of Dreadnaught ($10 per or $100 per case) and Broodoo ($7 per or $70 per case)

Overall it was the highlight of the trip and made the 3 hours of traffic in and around Chicago worthwhile. (2,074 characters)

Man, I showed up to grab a bite to eat and check out the brewery tour and had no idea I'd wind up spending over 9 hours there. This place is just full of great folks having a great time with great beer.

Certainly it's a bit of an eclectic bar, but that's what gives it character. It was the height of NFL season and the tv's had the games on, but you could still comfortably talk to the person next to you without shouting.

The staff not only knows what they're serving, but does a great job. Your glass doesn't sit empty, your food's delivered fast and when you're done, the plate's gone.

And the food is awesome. The Scotch Egg, the buffalo calamari, garbage fries, the pork sandwich...the list just goes on. Everything was cooked perfectly and were all nice inventions or creative variations on more typical fare.

I won't say much about the beer because it speaks for itself: incredible. But outside of their own amazing beer is the selection of other beers on hand. I got to try an incredible bottled German Rauchbier while there, but focused all my other efforts on the stuff on tap.

This is a great example of a pub with a unique identity serving their area in a unique way. If only all communities had such a great resource the world would genuinely be a better place. (1,282 characters)

I found myself in Northern Indiana so I decided to check out the LEGENDARY Three Floyds Brew-Pub.

What can I say.... this place is GREAT! The atmosphere... very cool. With FFF decor all over the place, bright colors, and just a lot of stuff to capture your attention. The people were friendly and it was a pleasure to visit.

Quality: The food and beer were of EXCELLENT quality. I had three different beers (Gumballhead, Dreadnaught, and Thulza Doom), all of which were fantastic. Plus, I had the Garbage Fries as an appetizer. All, I could say when I received my order was "HOLY CRAP!"... It was HUGE... but I muscled them down.... and they were terrific.

Service: Prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, friendly. My glass was never empty.... Nice meeting you Mindy. Exceptional service.

Selection: Exceptional!... 10 of their beers plus another 6 or so of guest beers on tap, plus a wide selection of bottles. I could have drank for days and not had the same thing twice!

Food: I only had the Garbage Fries, which were terrific, but I saw many other food orders scarfed down with great satisfaction.

Value: Gumballhead Imperial Pint: $5, Thulza Doom 12oz Bowtie: $5, Dreadnaught, 12 oz. bowtie: $5.... Garbage Fries: $8... (enough for 2 or 3 people!). Quite reasonable in my book.

Overall: If your anywhere close to this place.... you owe it to yourself to check it out.... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. (1,397 characters)

This was certainly one my favorite breweries I've visited. The atmosphere is almost like a quirky coffee shop with couched and bookcases strewn about and lots of odd things to look at ranging from Three Floyds pictures and memorabilia on the wall to random action figures posed along the ceiling beam. The service was great, the young lady who took care of us was very friendly and more than happy to answer any questions we had. As for the selection, .... come on, its Three Floyds. Some of the highest quality and most interesting beer your find. I had, however, had many of Three Floyds selections prior to the trip so what really stuck out to me was the food. Fantastic food. If you like Scotch Eggs or if you've never had the pleasure, then I suggest you do yourself a favor and order one or ten. Everything was reasonably priced as well. Overall an awesome brewery experience, one of the best you’ll find. (912 characters)

Stopped by on my way through to a business meeting in Chicago. A neat eclectic joint with many of their awesome beers on top. The service was quite acceptable, with only being left without a cold beer for a few minutes. Food was darn good - love the Chicken Diablo pizza. Other food choices were right up my alley as well. Watched the game while pouring through Gumballhead, Alpha King, and Dreadnaught.

It is quite a bit off the beaten path. I would say this is one gem you need to know is there or you'll miss it. (516 characters)

i stopped in for the first time this afternoon while travelling between chicago and south bend for work-related items.

i always imagined that exit 1 off of I-80 would be a strange place for a brewpub of this caliber because the area is rather crummy. i was pretty right as this place is located off a dirty-busy nw indiana road in a warehouse district underneath a watertower. diamond in the rough indeed

I was in around 4pm on a tuesday and had the joint mostly to myself. the interior was pretty sweet with cool 3F artwork everywhere and nice vibrant colors. I got the vibe that all of the employees were probably the coolest people within a 20 mile radius.

obviously, the beer is of the highest possible quality.

service was pretty strong as i was the only person at the bar.

the selection was great. There were 12+ 3F taps including a 5 or 6 that i had never come across. I had an alpha khan and a gorm noire and picked up 4 alpha kong bombers to take back to madison. there were a bunch of guest taps as well that were all top notch beers, most of which appeared to be imports. There were also a number of guest bottles and a variety of 3F bottles available. Growlers appeared to only be available for a few standard beers.

food: everything looked good but i did not eat (1,282 characters)

Visited after a job interview recently. Wanted to go on my birthday when I was passing through the area, but alas, it is closed on Mondays.

Arrived a few minutes before opening, but there were a couple locals who knew their beer. And one girl bringing back a keg who 'doesn't like beer' who was quickly chastised by all.

Once I got in, very laid back decour. Sat at the bar. Had an Alpha King (from MI, so they don't distribute to us) followed up by a Fabulous Resplendence Anniversary (amazing!). Also had a sample of Romulus, but Remus was sold out so I couldn't compare (or maybe the other way around?) Turkey burger w/ guac and pico was large, filling, and delicious for about $8. Fries were alright, just not my style.

On tap beer was relatively reasonably priced. To go was the same as retail, at least for the bombers, which are a little expensive. I still took home a bomber of Alpha Kong.

Overall, the place is eccentric, the patrons were able to talk beer, the bartender knew everything, and the food was great. I'd stop here every time I pass through. (1,070 characters)

Exactly a 12 hour drive from my house, on the way to Chicago. (its about 1 hour or so south east of Chicago, making the immediate area a decent place to stop outside of town) Casual, funky and comfortable place. Unusual location, in a industrial park, quite differant from what I am used to...great beer stop, growlers and bottles to go, 12 FFF selections on tap, with 8 quality guest taps, and 24 qual bottles. Tasty pub grub. The turkey burger and fries I had was a cut above the usual. Inexpensive compared to places in my local area, with 4 and 5 buck pints and 8-12 $ entrees on the food side. Gotta love a place that has "Good fellas" being projected on the wall, by the bar! Had a great visit...If in the area or anywhere close, check this place out (756 characters)

I drove down from Milwaukee to visit FFF and Flossmoor, and although overall it was worth the trip, I sadly came away a bit disappointed with the FFF brewpub. It is a bit small, but very cool inside... interesting furniture and decorations on the walls. They had several special brews (none of which aligned with their website’s list, but that was OK, it was all new to me), all of which were good. But, when I left, I wanted to get a growler and was informed that they only filled growlers of Alpha King, P&J, Bob the Bruce, and Gumballhead. Why the hell would I buy a growler of something I can get in the store? The whole point of a growler to me is that you’re taking something home that you can’t get anywhere but on tap. So, I figured I’d get a T-Shirt as a memento instead, but, although there are tons of different, cool, unique FFF T-Shirts on the walls, they only have common sizes in the 4 least-unique styles. Anyway, food was good, but there were a lot of mysterious ingredients (carrots, onions, peppers, etc.) on my pizza that the menu hadn’t listed. But, the portion was huge, and the prices weren’t too bad. I really like the half-pint concept ($3 for a 12oz), because it allowed me to try everything I wanted to without getting blitzed before heading to Flossmoor. But, as I said, although I really wanted to love this place when I first walked in, I came away a bit disappointed. (1,404 characters)

Stopped by 3 Floyd's the Midwest Mecca of brew on my vacation back home in Indiana.

Found the Brew Pub in a business park type area. Kind of a strange place for a restaurant. Once inside it was nice and cozy.

The walls were multicolored with tons of 3 Floyd's signage. The bartender was extra friendly and helpful when it came to the brews. They had a ton of brews on tap and several to go in growlers, bombers, and sixers. I was able to try several on tap and take a few others home.

I picked up a T-shirt and knocked down some garbage fries YUM! The service was great and the food good. As for the beer.... Holy Smoley...AWESOME. I have always loved their beer and I had a great time having it on draft.

The pub has a window which lets you peek into the distribution center and I saw casks of Black Sun, Behemoth, Dark Lord, and others. I almost smashed the glass and risked being arrested. MAN I CAN"T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS PLACE. If you are in the area stop by. If not make a detour. 3 Floyd's rules. (1,017 characters)

Visited 4 times over two days in July. Yeah, I like it here.

Nice atmosphere, often crowded but what else would one expect when the beer is this good? Courteous staff who is helpful though I was forgotten about a couple times. I'll let it slide. Oh, can we do something about the awful pink couch?

Excellent beer that exceeded my expectations. I had all the 3F beer available on tap and got a couple more at a liquor store nearby, and had only one bad experience. Gumballhead is the best American Pale Wheat beer I've had. Dreadnaught is amazing. the 10th anniversary beer was a treat that reminded me a bit of Fish Tale's 10 Squared. Moloko was a nice tasty break from the hops. Enjoyed a 1/2 pint of each of the Remus/Romulus twin pale ales side by side - excellent, though to be honest neither was in the class of Alpha King. Decepticon?...meh, you can go read the review I just typed up. And so on...

I had a really good burger here, a tasty chicken white pizza, so-so fish and chips, and some fantastic lemon blueberry cheesecake.

Yeah, I'll be back. (1,069 characters)

I just recently returned from my trip to this great little brewery in Munster. The atmosphere was very relaxed and chill. A place you could hang out in for a little while if you wanted. I got a one of thier burgers. I was gonna get thier steak but upon recommendation from a friend I got the burger. It was a GREAT burger! I consider myself a burger-nut and the Three Floyd's Burger beat out my 2 of my top ten. Let's remeber this is a brew pub. She had a BLT. I must say that is some of the best bacon she's ever tasted. IT's juicey and thick and yummmy! OK lets not forget about the beer. There's the Gumballhead. Ok I'd give this beer a 98. Then there's the Dreadnaught. OK so this one is PERFECT! then the X (tenth year anniversary)..another perfect and delicous creation. Not to forget like 5 other amazing beers. I'm sure they've won awards up the wazoo....This is a cool great brew pub! Highly recommended and only an hour ourside of Chicago... (951 characters)

This review is based on the visit to the brew pub the eve before DLD. After checking into our hotel and visit to Flossmoor Station for food, FFF was our last stop of the night. We arrived in time for last call. We needed to quick order and find some friends. I got a Deuce WiezenBock and Deuane shared with me a Barrel Aged Behemoth Barleywine. The beer was exceptional. The atmosphere is so laid back, with couches to lounge on spread out around the space. The bar is large enough and wraps around like a rounded corner 'L' shape so you can mostly see and socialize with everyone seated. There are also high barstools and table to eat at if you choose. My favorite seat was the couches beside a big bay window that stares into the warehouse/brewery and right there are the big oak barrels marked with the beer aging in them. They are aesthetically cool to look at and make me salivate to consider the beer inside. This is just such a laid back feel it is awesome.

Now Dark Lord Day, that was intense. With people everywhere. but it is not usually like that. I look forward to sitting on the couch with my feet up and a Barrel Aged Dark Lord on my next visit.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers! (1,196 characters)

Stopped in the night before DLD so I could see what it was like under normal circumstances.

As others have noted, it is really small! Probably no more than 20 tables in two rooms, and seating for another 10-15 at the bar. Lots of wood, walls are painted funny colors, and plenty of interesting stuff to look at (beer bottles, Star Wars collectibles, flags, a skull). Very cool and inviting. In one corner over by the bar, there are a couple of couches if you really need to relax.

Quality of the beer was fantastic. I tried 6 different beers that night, and they were all very well done, and fresh as you could want. I had enjoyed Gumballhead before, and it was even better fresh out of the tap.

Service was a little slow, but the place was full when I got there, and the bartender was swamped. After it cleared out, service was very prompt. They warned me that the Garbage Fries was too big of an appetizer for one person. Probably saved me from myself on that one.

Selection was great. It looked like there were 15+ 3F beers on tap, and 5 or so guest beers. I think they had a couple of Stone beers, and I saw them pour a GI Bourbon County also. I enjoyed a Hyena, The Deuce, Slave Princess, ArchAngel, Gumballhead, and Decepticon. Half pints over three hours, so still upright upon departure. Only disappointment was that they didn't have Dreadnaught or Alpha Khan on tap -- I survived it somehow.

Food was tasty. I had a BLT with a chardonay mayo. Very good. The folks next to me at the bar ordered some other sandwiches that looked equally appealing. I think others have mentioned that it is basically pub food, but each item is "tweaked" in some way so that "It's Not Normal". Quantity is pretty good as well - you won't walk away hungry.

Overall, a great place to go. Just wish it wasn't so far off the beaten path! I have a feeling that I will probably wind up here again one of the next times I am in Chicago. (1,936 characters)

I finally made the pilgrimage to Dark Lord Day this year, and subsequently I stopped at the pub for a few draught-only released from FFF that I had forever longed to try. Unfortunately they weren't serving some of the beers I most wanted to try (Moloko Plus, Alpha Kong, etc.), but they did have plenty of other tasty offerings, and I was not at all upset by that, particularly considering I was able to try the Barrel-Aged Dark Lord and the Slave Princess.

The pub itself has a small room with a bar and some tables as well as a side room with additional seating for those hungry pilgrims. Above the taps was a mural depicting the last supper consisting of the cast of weird Three Floyds cartoon characters. I almost bought a poster of it, but alas I already spent too much money on beer, as well as a cool nonic Imperial Pint glass branded with the Three Floyds logo. Anyways, the place has a kind of carnival feel to it. The walls are painted in bright colors with equally bright posters of their various beers. Overall, the place seems kind of campy. No worries. I'm here for their renowned beer, not their sense of interior design. Anyways, it kind of fits the theme of "Not Normal" for a place that would otherwise seem quite the contrary if not for the great beer on tap.

Admittedly it is also kind of hard to judge the service, atmosphere and food of the place on Dark Lord Day, since the bar is obviously packed to capacity with beer nerds who are very enthusiastic about chatting up others in regards to their beer. Can't comment on what the clientèle is like on a "normal" day at Three Floyds, though. I'll have to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. Furthermore, on DLD, the only food being served was a barbecue plate consisting of beef brisket, pork tenderloin, and brats with a side of potato salad, Ruffles potato chips, and a few slices of plain ass white bread for $10. Very disappointing. Half of my meal was fatty gristle, and it was astronomically far from the best barbecue I've had. To be fair, the Dark Lord barbecue sauce was probably the best sauce I've ever tasted, but they gave you less than a thimble full. The Rabid Rabbit saison mustard was good too, though a little too vinegary. To be fair, yet again, they usually have a full menu, and from what I hear from the regulars I talked to, it is usually pretty damn good. To be no so fair, these same people said they loved the barbecue, for what it's worth. I hope to be back in the future to find out for myself.

Additionally, service was hard to judge. The waitress was pretty good, but a tad bit slow. Understandably so, since she was working with a full house ALL DAY LONG. I'll give her additional credit for that. She also knew a bit about the beers they were serving, which is also a very good thing. I am just going to assume that she would have been more attentive and speedy if the place wasn't completely packed. Overall, it was good. The people working at the door seemed kind of dick-ish on the other hand, but I suppose that's what they're paid to do.

Anyways, on to the beer... the primary reason I'm here. They had what seemed to be a dozen (maybe more) house beers in addition to an equal number of guest beers. They had their standard fair of Alpha King, Bob Bruce, and Pride & Joy, a few seasonals such as Gumballhead, Midnight Sun, and some special release stuff that isn't bottled, such as Slave Princess (a small beer made from the second runnings of the Dark Lord), Decepticon IPA, Deuce Weizenbock, and a couple others that I didn't get around to. For guest beers, they had something from Stone (I think smoked porter), some belgians, and PBR, as well as several others I can't remember (I obviously wasn't here for the guest beers, particularly Pabst). All of the beers were excellent, with exception of the Decepticon, which I thought was actually kind of poor. The beer was also served in a hodgepodge of random glassware it seemed, though they had obviously gone through quite a bit throughout the day and maybe didn't enough enough of each appropriate style. At least the weizenbock was served in a proper 22oz weizen glass, but each of the four people seated at the table with me was served the Barrel-Aged Dark Lord in a different glass. The beer was fairly expensive as well, though not surprising for FFF. It was all worth it in the long run, though if given the chance to take anything back I sure as hell wouldn't have paid $10 for a plate of excessively fatty meat. I will be back in due time, however. (4,543 characters)

You have to admit this place is not normal. The decorations are a hodgepodge of foreign flags and 3 Floyds logos mixed with odds and ends memorabilia. Not to mention the TV is almost always playing some 50s era B-quality Sci-fi flick or the equivalent. Combine this with some of the most adventuresome and successful brewing in the Midwest and you have the 3 Floyds Pub.

The selection and quality of the beer is amazing. The 3 Floyds taps are numerous, fresh, and often unavailable outside the brewery (i.e. Hyena, Lord Admiral Nelson, Slave Princess, etc.) The guest beers are an homage to the brewers these guys respect and drink themselves. These beers are some of the best period.

The food I have had has been good. Not amazing but good for pub grub. If the food was as phenomenal as some of these beers the legend of Three Floyds would be epic.

The service... I gave it a demerit because last time I was in on a Saturday and a tour bus was in to visit the brewery. The place was full and wait staff was limited. (i.e. I could not get my beer fast enough). But they were friendly and helpful with selections for those who need it.

Everytime I am home in Munster, I stop in to grab a beer at the Three Floyds Pub and it is worth it every single time. It is especially worth it on last special day that comes only once a year. (1,333 characters)

located in a flat, gray industrial/office park-type area, and nothing special to look at from the outside. but this place is the proverbial diamond in the rough and the only reason i would ever go to munster indiana. the decor consists of random, wierd, and cool shit. an extremely impressive lineup of taps (20?) and a nice bottle selection. no crap beers here whatsoever. there were 14 3F taps and i focused on drinking these. alpha king, pride and joy, brian boru, dark sun stout, slave princess, decepticon (double ipa), behemoth, dreadnought and much more were available. sadly, you can only get alpha, pride, and robert the bruce in growlers to go. and at $12 per growler a little pricey. why no discount on a refill growler? i had no idea they made this many beer styles, can't even remember them all. everything was good. and here, super fresh on tap, their exceptional beers were even better. the only non-3f i tried was bell's hopslam because i can't get that in illinois anymore thanks to sab miller, and that was phenomenal as well. the pizzas we ordered were quite good as was the service. if you ever have the misfortune to find yourself in indiana you must visit this place. note to management: the japanese printed cloth with the sumo guys on it is supposed to hang over an open doorway.

have been here many times(once a month for years now), the atmoshpere is awesome, great selection of guest beers on-tap and bottle, great food, etc. most of the staff is good (although if you apply to work here you must have a certain % of your body covered in tattoos, piercings, african giant earhole things, etc), although there is one bartender here who can be a real dick. (1,682 characters)

I went here with a group of friends for my birthday. It was...interesting. Most certainly a brewery with a pub as an afterthought. But we all knew that it was the beer they're known for and the beer we were there for. It's located in a sketchy little industrial area, so you'll most likely think you took a wrong turn when you pull up to it. Inside is very small - there's a bar and then very few tables, but the place was pretty well packed with people. They didn't have a great selection of food and not too many veggie options, but what we had was good and the portion sizes were very large. I think the garbage fries and fried green tomatoes were the most popular appetizers. Their beer selection was fabulous and they'd give you half-pints as tasters if you didn't want a full pint, so we got to try pretty much everything they had on tap (which was extensive). Our server was a little overwhelmed and stand-offish because we told him he looked liked the guy from Soundgarden. I'm not sure how much that had to do with his service being really slow. (1,054 characters)

Stopped by on my way out of Chicago to check out Three Floyds. As everyone has previously mentioned, this place is in a little unusual location, basically an industrial park. I wonder what made this choose this location? Maybe they were just a brewery before they became a brew pub?

The decor is fine by me, fits the style of 3F labels. Stained concrete floor with bright color walls. Paintings of 3F characters mix with brewery signs from breweries around the world. A good, eclectic mix of music was playing in the background. Unfortunately, there was a really annoying couple a few tables away talking way too loudly; arguing back and forth about who was a bigger dipsh$t. The remaining customers kept turning around in wonderment about the stupid things they were saying.

Service was okay, not as bad as some have said, but not exceptional. I had to hunt down my server to pay the bill, but everything else was fine. There were only three tables in the dining room in use, so I am not sure what the delay was. I think the 3F people might have been avoiding the annoying couple, everytime someone from the brewery came out, they liked to point out how something they were doing could be improved.

The food was good, definitely above average for a brewpub. It is nice to see a brewpub move beyond burgers and fries. I had a sandwich, but a lot of things looked great. (1,378 characters)

Three Floyds has not only great beer but great food as well! Really like their fish and chips as well as their pub burger. Just got back from trying their Black Sun Stout and once again they have made an excellent hoppy brew. The only thing that surprised me is that even though they have all their beer on tap they would only let me take home a growler of Alpha King. I can understand that seasonal beer usually isn't allowed to be growlered but I was really hoping for some Robert the Bruce. Overall, a great place to go for good hoppy beer! (543 characters)

Stopped here on a mini brew-pub tour of the area. It was quite nice to see the home of some of the most sought after beers in the area.
This is my kind of place. It's off the beaten path in a industrial park. You wouldn't find it unless you were out looking for it. Very nice, small pub area in front of the brewery. A very casual, laid back, decor to say the least. Just as if I was over a friends house and we were drinking in the basement. Incredible beer, good music, and a really good "my '80's-90's generation" vibe being displayed everywhere.
I was here during the holidays, so was a little upset to see no specialty, non-bottled beers available. I did find comfort in a Black Sun Stout off the nitro tap.
They have a just as impressive guest tap lineup. Gouden Carolus Noel caught my eye here. Food was decent, just had an appetizer. Mostly was trying the beer and taking in the atmosphere. This is a very good place to have in the area. It definately warrants another pub visit in the near future from here in Cincy. (1,028 characters)

The first three visits were with just brewery tours. they were great. Atmosphere was nonchalant, service good, selection their own three or four. Food did not have any at the time. Last was with the brew pub. Service was good, atmosphere was great. Quality is always good here. Selection several of their own with some guest beers. Food was good. Value is reasonable, pints were well priced, with cases the same as always. Growlers did not get one. But they are available. This is a very nice place to visit. (508 characters)
