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It was actually remarkably quiet in the late Saturday afternoon and all the tattoos and piercings had been replaced by fairly normal looking people.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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
