I stopped by the brewpub for dinner, and a couple beers the night before DLD. The place was full, but not as packed as I expected it to be. They had their usual suspects on tap with four or five rotating offerings. My favorite was the Alpha Kong. I'm not sure if the menu was scaled down because of DLD, but it only consisted of a handful of deli sandwiches, and pizzas. A couple of the guys I was with ordered sandwiches, which they said were mediocre. I split a pizza with a buddy of mine which was alright. Our server was prompt, but copped a really bad attitude when we asked for separate checks. I would go there again if I lived in the area, but I sit at the bar and stick to the beer. (691 characters)

We stopped by the brewpub on the day before DLD, to stock up on fresh Alpha King and enjoy the place.
In my opinion it is a very nice looking brewpub, if not special. Music was very loud, which I do appreciate.
Service was a little bit slow, but they were probably getting ready for DLD. Food was impressively good, and the beer selection is outstanding. If fresh FFF was not enough, the line-up of guest breweries is very good, although I was disappointed to find out they ran out of Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier.
All in all, a great brewpub. (545 characters)

Having heard wonderful things about this brewpub, I decided to make the three and a half hour trip on my spring break. The location is bizzare, since it sits in the middle of an office park-like area. However, the place is pretty cool looking.

It felt really small. When you go in, you can see that the place is divided into the bar section, and the restaurant section. It feels really laid back! I am sure that the three small couches in the corner really helped that feeling. The servers are dressed very casual (my waitress wore a Three Floyds t-shirt and ripped jeans) and there is plenty to look at on the walls. There are lots of cool things hanging up, such as posters of other breweries (showing just how unpretentious this place is really) and taps. They played good music, and they played two good movies while I was there ("Time Bandits" and "Thank You For Smoking").

My group was quickly asked what we would like to drink after we had found our seats. I wanted to start light, hoping that I could consume more beer that way, so I went with Gumballhead which is 4.5% ABV. However, when I was presented with this said American wheat beer, I was stunned. They served it in a pint glass, sans head. What sort of wheat beer is supposed to look like this? It smelled intensely hoppy, and when I brought it to my lips, I was greeted with a heavy alcohol presence. I was dumbfounded, and when I asked the waitress if that was supposed to be their wheat beer, she told me how their beers don't fit into any categories. Oh well.

The food was decent. They mostly have various styles of pizza on their menu. We started with a four cheese dip, which tasted like it was just four different brands of Cheese Whiz. Then I went on to have a couple slices of Agean Pie (pizza) and a steak sandwich, which was tasty, but not very fancy. It came with some deliciously salty fries (very good). For dessert, I had a chai cheesecake which was great.

I made it through more beers than I expected because they offer half-pints, which was great since their beers are insane! They are so potent... In fact, if I were to go there more regularly, I would definitely take advantage of the fact that they have "guest" brews there; beers from other breweries which were actually mostly great beers.

I would encourage anyone to try one of their beers, but i don't think a 4 hour drive to the brewpub is really worth it. Maybe if you got a tour and some merchandise, then it might make it worth your gas. (2,488 characters)

We stopped at 3Floyds for lunch and I had the Turkey Smoker with a Hyena! in tulip glass. Afterwards, had the Alpha Kong (a monster beer!) and Black Sun on nitro-tap. There were all sorts of beer knickknacks behind the bar, including a Surly Darkness poster which was cool. This place has definitely taken on more character than when I first visited it after it opened so it definitely has presence.

We started out with buffalo calamari - an awesome spicy appetizer. The waitresses were helpful and knowledgable about beers. They had the usual 3F beers on tap plus some specials (Hyena! and Alpha Kong for instance) and a guest list of beers. The place felt cozy - there was a basketball game on and we didn't feel rushed at all.

Since I don't get the chance to enjoy their special beers often, I focused on drinking these rather then their usual beers I can easily find at the store.

I recommend everyone stop in there when they're in the vicinity. It's a easy drive if you going in between Chicago and Detroit/Indianapolis. (1,029 characters)

I had heard not so glowing reviews of the service here but was pleasantly surprised. I was there by myself at noon on a Sunday so I felt a bit like a drunk. I was the only patron there when I walked in and the only two employees were playing air guitar to AC/DC. Immediately I was hit with a great impression.

My preconceptions couldn't have been further from the truth. The bartender was knowledgeable and more than willing to answer the questions I had about the place, which were many(thanks Heather).

The beers were obviously great but I may have come during a down time cause they didn't have as many FFF brews as I had heard from other reviewers. This just gives me more reason to come back in the future.

The food was great as was the overall experience. As I said I was there by myself so I got a chance to meet some people and have some nice conversations. Actually I met a group a of guys that invited to me another one of their favorite breweries in the area after we were done at FFF. All of that being said I will be a regular visitor at Three Floyds from this day forth. Fact. (1,095 characters)

A bit off the beaten path, yet easy enough to find with minimal direction.

In Munster for a week, and boy was 3 Floyds a nice bonus, worth the trip alone!

Upon entering you can take a righty and sit on a couch, or peer into the brewery and watch the brewers at work through the huge window.

A turn to the left, and you enter the bar area. Grab a seat at the bar, on a couch or at table. I was there twice and 2001 A Space Odyssey was playing both times. Then it switched to Dumb and Dumber on night and A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on the other. There is a large wall projector in the bar area and a flat screen and various TVs on the other side.

Get the fry cone - and split it with someone. It is huge and worth every penny of the $4 they charge for it.

The Scotch Egg at $3 is another gem you should order up.

I tried the Alpha King, Alpha Kong, Black Sun Stout, Gumballhead, and Hyena! They were all top notch - pick your style, then pick your poison, they are all good here. They also have a very impressive selection of bottles if you need to wander outside the realm of Three Floyds.

A quick look around and you will see Sci-Fi memorabilia and artwork everywhere. Not one theme, but Boba Fett and Homer Simpson are definitely represented. Their artwork is also prominently displayed. IMHO it rivals the artwork of any brewery anywhere - seriously, it's just cool. I grabbed a few Alpha King shirts to go.

I had the muffuletta sandwich - delicious! and the house rueben - also very good. The price is right and the food does not disappoint.

Be sure to get here at least once your life! (1,608 characters)

The Mecca of American brewpubs! I finally made it! Of course there's no Dark Lord but I can't expect everything to go right.
A very small pub/resturaunt with a cool interior. Very relaxed, somewhat friendly vibe. The servers were a bit distant (but busy). As expected the beers were great!
Fantabulous Resplendence was their hoppy, unique 10 year anniversary Strong Ale coming in at 10% abv.
Gorm Noire was a very nice spiced Black Belgian Ale.
Deception was a nice big IPA at 7.8 abv.
Remus and Romulus were 2 pale ales that had different hops. Remus with Bravo and Romulus with Apollo. Both 5% abv.
Last was the Gorch Fock Helles. An easy drinking lager with 20 IBU's and 5.2 abv.
A lot of buzz surrounds Three Floyds and I can imagine people having very high expectations when they visit. The buzz almost hurts more than it helps. If I had wandered in not knowing the place I would have left thinking, "Wow, what a cool place."
The food was good and affordable, the beers were great and had names that sounded like Gwar songs. You can't beat that. (1,050 characters)

Just went here today to celebrate a graduation with my girlfriend. We went at about 630 and the place was kinda dead but the atmosphere was pretty good. It was a relaxing place to have a drink and the walls were covered with FFF memorabilia all along the walls. It was divided into 2 parts, one that is the bar and another that was more of sitting area that was chill. We ate in the chill area and they even have little couches there that would remind one of Starbucks.

The food was pretty good as we had a pizza which came out hot and fresh. It also had fresh pieces of garlic on it which added a nice hint and the pepperoni were more spicy than usual a happy addition. The waiter came by here and there but was nothing special and really seemed bored.

The place is worth the trip of the beer. They have a ton of it and all pretty good. Want to say they have 8 FFF beers on tap and a few guest. additionally, had a ton of great beers in bottles from other area as they had Chimay, Duvel, Old Rasputin, Founder's Breakfast, Old Bastard and so on. Nice place and definitely will visit it again. (1,096 characters)

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)
