This place is great! The only negative is the industrial park look of the outside. The ambience after stepping through the door totally makes up for the outside appearance. Lots of cool art by the same artists that work on the labels. The beer selection is fantastic. They had at least 8 3 Floyd's beers on tap and then 10-15 beers from other brewers across the US and Europe. Lots of good bottle options too (Stone, Hitachino, Delerium, Dogfishhead, Founders, etc). The beer options are comparable to the best places I've been to in Philadelphia, which I feel has the best beer bars in the world in terms of variety and quality. The food was good too. I had a meatloaf sandwich that was above average and it came with some very tasty fries. It looked like the pizza was Chicago style, which I love, but wasn't so hungry, so I didn't order a pie. They also allow you to buy six-packs and bombers. They had 4 options for the bombers. I imagine these rotate in style. The t-shirt were really cool too. Hiff bought the Gumballhead cat with a crashed plane in the background shirt and they had a few more cool options.

If you're in the area definitely check this place out. I'll go out of my way to get back there.

Visited on 10/5/2008.

FFF brewpub is located in a light-industrial park and from the outside it looks like it could be just another small manufacturing plant. A couple outside touches let you know this is the real deal: The metal art sculpture of the "Alpha King / Alpha Queen" out front and the beautiful gardens in front set off an otherwise non-descript metal sided building.

Once inside you can go to the right and find the dining area or turn left and visit the bar room. Everything is kitschy and cool where it counts and non-descript where it doesn't. For example, the floors are simple painted concrete and the ceiling is what you would expect in a metal industrial building, but the walls are covered in cool brewerania, FFF artwork, and wierdo TV and movie references (for example, the framed picture of Sam Elliott cracks me up). There are a few TVs scattered around that show old movies or sports games but these are not the focus of the place. The most important thing to note is that this pub is small. There are only about 10 tables in the dining room and fewer than that in the bar area.

Now for the good stuff. The beer selection was excellent, with around 8 FFF beers on tap and at least 8-10 guest taps. Between all of these taps, there was a huge range of styles and types represented. Most of these beers are $5 per imperial pint, and with several of the beers at 8+ abv, that is a deal! The guest taps are a nice mix of American and imported craft brews, but along with the extensive bottle list they were sort of expensive.

Service was reasonably good, with most of our needs being met fairly quickly. The food was very good. I have heard people bag on the food here but it has always been good or better on my visits.

In short, a relaxed unassuming place with excellent beers for mostly reasonable prices (though some are unexplicably too costly). Definitely worth a visit!

Finally made the trek. We arrived around 5:30 and quickly grabbed a table that a group had left. The place is as advertised. A funky inviting atmosphere. We ordered up the first round, I went with the Topless Witch. What an amazing beer. BOTTLE THIS!!! I stayed in big beerland with my second beer being a Dreadnaught. WOW is this amazing on tap. Our service was decent, we didnt have to wait for our next round. Food came quickly and was very good. I had the Chancellor and my wife made up her own pizza. We shared and were both very impressed. The fries are top notch. Finished off the night with another Dreadnaught. My wife surprised me with a Alpha King shirt. My only gripe would be that I really wish they cut a better deal at their premises on to go brews. But, thats just the cheap bastard in me. I will be back there. HEY NICK FLOYD, BOTTLE THE TOPLESS WITCH!!!!

Visited 4 September, 2008
We splashed our way across rain-soaked highways and suburban roads (thanks, Hurricane Gustav) to an unassuming stretch of industrial buildings. Having seen photos of Dark Lord Day on website, I recognized the 'MUNSTER' water tower and knew we were close. Pulled into the lot at the 11:30 opening time and met our three friends inside, waiting at the bar, pints in hand.

The luscious scent of 'brewing' met us at the door, sweet wort welcoming us inside. Neither outside or in is this an 'impressive-looking' place: the furniture is pretty spartan (even with a few colorful couches), the decor is an eclectic mix of old beer signage and enlarged labels of FFF beers, past and present. The bar to the left was a bit livelier and fuller (even during the lunch hour) but we opted for a table centered in the dining area, near a large window into the brewing room (Gumballhead staring angrily back at us through the glass...). A classic beer movie, 'Strange Brew', played without fanfare on the opposite wall. Overall, there's a straightforwardly simple vibe... appealing for a lengthy hangout.

Service was quick and very friendly. Our guy's name was Greg and he knew his beers, Three Floyds and others. We didn't need much help picking our beers (where to go wrong?), but asked for and received help on the food items. Greg told us a new chef had just joined the team and encouraged us to try items off the back of the menu. Pierogies were a big hit (2 rounds), sandwiches/burgers were tasty and filling, cheese dip was disappointing.

It was amazing how good most of the beers were on draught. Metalmonk's glasses of Gumballhead and Dreadnaught were phenomenal, my wife's pints of Robert the Bruce were also quite nice and my two curiosities - Ostemoeller (smoked helles) and Moloko (big milk stout) were sublime. There were about a dozen FFF beers available, but what made this pub's list so intriguing was the range of outstanding 'guest' brews (at least two dozen).

Not all beers were available to-go in bottles, but all could be had in growlers. Unfortunately, luggage space was limited for our return trip to Oregon the next day, so we 'settled on': 2 Dreadnaughts, a Moloko, a Gorch Fock, and a six-pack of Robert the Bruce (two of which were swapped for Gumballhead from my friend). Prices for bottles seemed reasonable, ranging from $5 or 6 for the smaller 22s to $10 for the Dreadnaught and $10 for sixs.

It was tough to drag ourselves away but after nearly 2-1/2 hours, it was time to go our separate ways. A great time: nice food, terrific company (including our new acquaintance, Andy, from New Orleans) and stellar beer. I'm very glad we made the effort to get to Munster and would love to go back someday.

Cheers!

Nestled stealthily into a boring business-park location, Three Floyds encapsulates everything that great beer is all about--not just because of the beer, but that's clearly a huge part of it. Their offerings are completely and utterly top-notch for beer lovers wanting huge flavors. But everyone already knows that. Having made the trip to this beer mecca to taste them on tap was completely worth the time and trouble. (The guest beer list was excellent too...Belgians, other great U.S. microbrewers...but I couldn't justify ordering any of them considering the scarcity of FFF stuff in my area.)

The atmosphere was great. Unassuming in many ways, though adorned with not only the great artwork that graces their many different labels, but plenty of other beer signs, from Belgians to nostalgic Milwaukee classics. Some interesting, non-related non-beer signs and artwork too. The overall vibe is a welcoming, casual one.

Service was attentive, super-knowledgable, and just as enthusiastic about everything as we were. Our waiter seemed to dig our enthusiasm for the place, its beer and its food. And yeah, the food was excellent...particularly the goat-cheese perogies. Wowza. (good call, Sharon)

Mingled with a visiting NOLA resident, encountered a couple "small world" scenarios, had a great view of the brew room in the back, and reveled in the good times with good company while the TV played the classic 'Strange Brew'. Walked out with an armful of bottle purchases, pleasantly buzzed and with the conviction that I WILL visit this very special place again.

This is a small brewpub with a cozy, stoner/hippy atmosphere. Very welcoming and not overwhelming.

I had the sampler and it was obvious that they take care of their beers. All were fresh and tasted nice.

Tom was our waiter; very nice and helpful guy. He took care of us and made us feel at home offering advice on beer selection and food.

The selection was, of course, great. Where else can you get Gumballhead, Dreadnaught, Blackheart, and Alpha King on tap. 'Nuff said.

What food we had was fine. Just a step above regular 'pub food' but was all I needed while quaffing up the FFF brews.

All in all, a great experience. I hope I can revisit this place again soon, as well as the other Chicago area attractions that rank right up there with the best beer bars in the world.

I loved this place. When I walked in with my wife, I felt like I was in someone's garage. Very funky and comfortable.

Service was excellent and informative.

Food was out of this world. Had cone of frittes with chipotle mayo. Wow. Had seared scallop appetizer with asparagus and tomitillo salsa. Gourmet!!

Brick oven pizza was great with green peppers from their garden. I'm a sausage eater and the Italian sausage on the pizza was great.

Home made cake for desert was sinful. Will be going back and recommending to anyone going near Munster, IN.

Arrived at about 6:PM and walked into what seemed like a basement with a bunch of different stuff on the walls, very homey. It was also surprisingly small, but I really liked it. The staff there was a bit slow, so they were fooling around a bit, but never forgot there were customers. They answered every question, and offered up tons of information. I really enjoyed the fact that they had all there products, as well as some nice Belgians, and a couple micros. My wife and I split the cheese dip and Aegean pizza. It was so flipping tasty. A really cool spot, great beers, great food, and great people.

i had the best burger i have ever had at this place and i am a gourmet snob. the brioche bun was so amazing. i think that this place speaks for itself in terms of beers. they had a bunch of their own on tap but also some guest beers (what's the point.) i wish i could have tried more but then i would have had to sleep on the lawn out front. the three that i had were great. they didn't have the istout which is basically why i drove all the way out to the middle of nowhere. the atmosphere is really mellow w/ a lot of locals and a cool space and bombers for sale to boot.

a must visit.

Traffic sucked once we got off I-80, it was the longest 3 miles ever. The drive from Chicago was not bad. I knew that 3F was tucked away in an industrial area. That was no lie.

As soon was we pulled into the parking lot it was clear as day this was a brewery with a restaurant as the loading bays are right of the doors to the restaurant. Again, as expected. As we walked in the door all I could smell was beer making. What a lovely smell!!

The restaurant is fairly small, it was around 2pm on a Tuesday and most of the people eating there were locals who clearly were not there for the beer. We were. Dreadnaught on-tap... score! Blackheart IPA... nice! Alphanaught... tasty! Not to mention Gumballhead and Alpha King. There was a robust helles lager (it might have been smoked) and one other specialty beer not to mention Pride & Joy and Robert the Bruce.

Since we were on our way back to Omaha we only had two beers each, I went with 5oz glasses of both Alphanaught and Blackheart IPA and Tara did Dreadnaught and Blackheart. Of course the beers was good.

We ordered a BLT and fish and chips. I liked the fish a lot, very flaky and tasty. The fries were okay. I don't think Tara was all that thrilled with BLT. It was food and we were hungry. I wasn't expecting much and frankly our low expectations were satisfied.

The service was adequate. Our waitress seemed way over worked, she was the only waitress on the floor, there was a bartender but he wasn't doing much. When we were done eating we asked if they had a gift shop. They did we were told but our waitress was too busy to take us there. I said we could walk over. She said it was locked. Then she stared at me for a couple moments and said she'd take us there in a few minutes. Okay. So, after about five minutes she grabs a set of keys from behind the bar and escorts us to the next room (next room in the restaurant) only to find a locked display case. Our waitress told us we couldn't touch the shirts! She nodded towards Nick Floyd who was sitting nearby and said he didn't allow it. Our waitress told us to look quickly. I was irritated. I asked about hats, they had the two on display, both were not my style. I did get a t-shirt as I felt some obligation after all this "hassle". Lastly, it was an ordeal to buy the damn shirt... something to do with cash or credit card. By then I didn't care. Sorry I wanted to rock some 3F gear. Don't sell it if it is so complicated.

As good as the beer was and as inviting and chill as the atmosphere was the location is too out of the way. I wonder where the nearest hotel is? I'd stop if I was driving on I-80 but I wouldn't detour from Chicago again.

We headed over for beers and food the friday evening before DLD this year. Atmosphere is cool, very relaxed, and the bar area is pretty nice looking. Some couches along the front wall make it easy to sit back and relax with a fine beverage. Food was amazing, we had the carnivore pizza I think it was, with all sorts of meat and roasted garlic. And this thing was huge and definitely good value. The beers were certainly quality as well, along a wide range of styles. This place is serious, very enjoyable.

I've been to the Brewpub a few times and overall it's a pretty nice place to enjoy a brew. It has kind of a "trendy" feel with short couches, movies playing on the wall, etc. The service has been good every time I've went, never really sat there with an empty glass for too long. There are always a shit load of brews on tap and plenty of stuff in bottles on a menu that is rotated regularly. However, it can get pricey. Five to six bucks for half pints of some stuff just kind of makes you angry. The food is good though, I've tried their Carnivore pizza, steak sandwich, garbage fries (recommend!) and buffalo calamari and they're all damn good. Plus you can get bombers and six packs to go. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area or passing through.

Atmosphere lacks pretense. It is situated in front of the brewhouse. Beer shirts, posters, and signs grace the walls. The bar is a fair size.

The quality of beer is exceptional. I really can't say anymore than that. I had Alpha King and the Alpha Naught. Both were exceptional and left me wanting more. I can only think of a few other brewpubs that the beer is this good.

Selection was nice too, with 10 or so of their own beers on tap and a handful of other brewing companies as well. 30 or so bottles from around the world.

Food was good. I had the fish and chips, the chips were far better than the fish, still good.

Prices are very reasonable especially for this kind of quality.

If you are in the Midwest you need to stop by and check it out. Highly recommended.

Seemingly unlikely location for such a fantastic place. Been here a couple times, including DLD (which is sort of an outlier from the day to day scene at FFF). Great selection of in-house taps including a couple seasonals and lesser known brews, with the staples available in growlers to-go. Some bottles were also available to-go. Guest taps are thoughtfully selected. Service at the bar was great, with a good and knowledgeable barman. The food we ordered was excellent, and Three Floyds beers are some of the best on earth. Prices were reasonable for all we bought. Overall atmosphere is modern, yet casual and seemingly fitting for a brewery like Three Floyds. And, it doesn't get much better than the warm humid smell of boiled wort wafting in from the warehouse next door.

Finally got to stop here on vacation this year.

Small bar area with table seating in another room. Lots of FFF stuff all over the walls. Other cool posters(including Godzilla!)too. While it's not oozing ambiance, it is a nice place.

Nice selection of beer on the taps. Along with the usual FFF offerings they also carry "pub only" beers. I had the Topless Witch. Loved it! They also have many guest beers on their taps.

Food was well priced with a selection that should please everyone. Scotch Eggs are the bomb! A pizza should serve two people. The sandwiches being delivered to other tables looked great too. The service could have been a little better. While our waiter was super nice he was flying solo. I don't know if they were short staffed that day, but they could have used another server.

Good prices on beer to go. A case of Dreadnaught was $100.

The pub only beers make it worth the trip. Thanks FFF, I hope to be back soon!

There is a small bar to one side of the pub, and a small section of waited tables on the other. Lots of cool 3F signage up on the walls. A nice looking place, but not too upscale. Despite the highly acclaimed 3F beers (about 10) that can be found on tap at the bar (along with some excellent, but not too unusual, guest beers[another ten]) I have found the food to be the best thing about the 3F brew pub. I am not going to say it is cheap, but it is not too expensive and it is really d*mn good. My friend is a veggie and she thought the eggplant parm sandwich was the best she'd ever had. I have had other excellent dishes there too. Also I should mention that they always seem to have one or two of their own beers on tap that are not available in bottles. Growlers are available which I always like to see. However it should be noted that although the bar is open on Sundays and you can drink to your hearts content at the bar, there are no to-go beer sales due to Indiana State law. Bottles do not seem to be appreciably cheaper at the brewery.

2011: Waited about an hour on a saturday for a party of 6, not too bad considering. All manner of eye-catching schwag on the walls, an original Dreadnaught label painting, psychotronic art, flags, posters, soccer scarves, etc. Imagine a Bennigans approach to decor, acid dipped in Willy Wonka psychedelia. Great atmosphere, efficient staff, great food. Seems they are trying to position themselves as a restaurant, which was slightly odd. Was told at the door we couldn't stand at the bar for this reason. Overall a convivial experience though, and plan to return when time allows.

06-09-2008:
I've been here several times under various circumstances, most recently this past weekend. It was a busy friday night, the lot was packed, but we got in and found a table right away. After 10pm it seemed to clear out. They had a movie or film show projected on one wall.

We had appetizers and the homemade dessert special, which was strawberry rhubarb cobbler. Mad Anthony IPA was a guest draft, along with that I sampled a Dreadnaught in a 10oz. for $4. There were a few pub-only drafts, which are worth a trip alone.

Our server Sophie was really friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. We got a couple Gumballhead growlers to go, and also bottles of their latest small batch, Blackheart IPA.

I stopped here on the way to spending a few days in Niorthern Indiana, so planned to arrive at lunch, which we did. The place wasn't hard to find, it's tucked back in an industrial area. The inside of the place is divided in two, the left half has tables and the bar, the rigt half is all tables. The place was not crowded, we sat down and were given menus immediately. The advantage of the place being divided in two be came apparent when right away a couple came in with a very poorly behaved kid. Not wanting our lunch ruined by an unruly kid, we moved to the bar side, and the server was very understanding.

I ordered fish and chips, my wife ordered a steak sandwich. The food was good, they use tilapia in their fish and chips, a rarity. It was very light and had a good flavor. My wife had a steak sandwich, which she said was good, but messy. I had two beers, a Gumballhead and a Rabid rabbit. Everything was good, and although I found the decor a bit plain, to me it says this is a place to come and enjoy the food and beer, not the wall decor. It succeeds in that very well.

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.

I think I have to give the Three Floyds brewpub an all-5 review. We stopped (at my urging) while on the way back from a Chicago trip. I wanted to go mainly for the beer, although there are no take-away sales on Sunday (Indiana law), but we ended up stopping for dinner, too. By the end of dinner, everyone in our group of 8 was raving about the whole experience.

The brewpub itself is a little hard to find, but that lends to its charm. Once you drive you way onto the back streets of an industrial park, you're there. Unassuming building - plenty of parking out front.

They had a big selection of their beer on tap, as well as some guest taps. Amongst our group, we order about six different beers and passed them around: Rabbid Rabbit, Alpha Kong, Topless Witch (one of the best porters I've ever tasted), Pride & Joy, Gumballhead, and Robert the Bruce. All the beer was fantastic.

Service was excellent - they were willing to seat and serve a group of 8 instantly. Everything came out quickly, they answered all of our questions, and were willing to split the bill.

The food really surprised us with its excellence. I expected standard pub fare, but it went above and beyond. The salads were great. I had an excellent reuben sandwich. The fries - which were cut thin and generously salted - came with a curry ketchup and horseradish aeoli. We also tried their beer cheese bread. Everyone made comments about how good their meals were.

I will gladly stop by Three Floyds any time I'm passing through Munster. Amazing beer, top-notch food, great staff.

I've lived close enough to this place for a long time. Just never had a chance or even thought about going. Until now. What a great place to sit down and have a few pints. Either sit at the bar with a good friend. Or chill out on the couch with a group. Just a great atmosphere. They have a nice selection of 3 Floyds brews. A majority of beers that you may not be able to find at the retail level are available here. I was very happy to get to try some new beers that i have not had a chance to try. Overall a great place to visit.

Stopped at the brewpub on the way to visit friends in Chicago the day before Dark Lord Day 2008.
We arrived shortly after noon on a Friday and were promptly seated. Even though much of the staff seeemed to getting for the next day, service was excellent and the beer selection selction was good. The food items were a bit limited (or at least the waiter told me this) but there was still a great selection. The food and beer were presented nicely, The food portions were perfect, and it was a very positive experience.
I would recommend stopping if you are in the area.

Visited the pub the night before DLD last week. Being from SC, where we can't even get any FFF beers, it was pretty exciting to be sitting in the pub. We ordered several pints, as well as some garbage fries, pizza and salad, all of which were great, but a bit salty. Be sure to ask for light salt when you go. The fries were monstrous. I couldn't believe how much food one could get for so cheap. The staff was courteous, casual, and knowledgeable, albeit a bit arrogant (but come on, they work for FFF). They had all of their beers, of course, as well as a bunch of others including a few belgians and even PBR. The beers were typical prices, although high gravs were perhaps a bit pricey, $7-$12 for a 10-oz pour. If you live in the area, or are around for any length of time, I'd highly recommend stepping in here for a few fresh pints.

Hung out here the night before DLD. Arrived at about 9 after spending some time in Flossmoor, IL. Sat with several friends from Alabama who were there for DLD as well. The On-tap offerings were many and varied. I was thoroughly impressed. The beer was fresh and mighty good. I had the Decimator Dopplebock, Blackheart IPA, Alpha Kong and an Alpha King at last call. The Alpha Kong was AMAZING, to say the least. Our waiter was not overly attentive but attentive enough. Bettlejuice on the big screen TV helped add to the mystique inside. It's in a warehouse district where all the buildings look the same. You would never know this jewel was there.

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.
