Having only been here during the last couple of Dark Lord days my brother and I decided it was time to check it out on a normal day and see what it was like. We were up in Chicago getting beer anyways so we stopped in that night after we were done getting beer. We walked in and the place seemed pretty packed for a Wednesday night around 8 but we managed to get a table pretty quickly without much of a wait at all. The atmosphere was really great, kind of laid back and lots of cool stuff on the walls, good music and not to loud. Our waitress was very nice and was always quick getting our drinks and checking on us. I'll start with the food. The menu was a bit small but everything sounded good but we decided to split a pizza which was excellent. We devoured it pretty quickly. Next time I'm in I will try something else for sure. As for the beer. I've had most all their year round beers and some seasonals and I've had Dark Lord and I've enjoyed if not loved all of them. So I started with a favorite Alpha King, great as always. Next I got the Alpha Klaus since I've always wanted to try it and it was fantastic. One of the better porters I've had in a while. And for my last drink I got Arctic Panzer Wolf which was amazing. I wish I didn't have to drive four hours home or else I would have had a lot more, instead I bought a bomber of Dreadnaught to go (I figure it will the freshest I've ever had it). Overall it's really great beer with really great food. I will be back again and hopefully soon.

A small little brewery tucked away in an industrial park. I would highly recommend this brewery to a friend.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and you can typically find a seat just about anytime of the day. The crowd appeared to be mostly locals and the pub was not too loud.
Quality: The quality of the beer was great. They have very interesting graphics on all of there bottles. I have enjoyed just about every beer I have had from them
Selection: The selection can vary but I believe they offer something to just about everyones taste.
Food: The food here is completely wonderful. Their menu is full of varitiy and everything Ive had here has been soo good. I almost get more excited about the food than I do about the beer. No joke.
Value. The whole place is a good bang for buck visit.

Quite simply, I love this place. The beer is just awesome. You can look at the reviews elsewhere. I want to talk about the food. This place is a foodie's dream. The starters (called Small Plates), Large Plates, and Pizzas seem ordinary by name, but careful examination shows that creativity at 3 Floyds is not just limited to the beer. The best example I can give is the Grilled Cheese. Thus named on the menu. A simple, unassuming name. But read the description and you soon find out that this sandwich is made with "English cheddar on rye with smoked apple, frisee, mustard, and lyle's golden syrup butter, served with french fries." Yes, it's as good as it sounds.
Seating is very limited in the dining area. And the service is friendly but infrequent. I have always gotten a table, but I can imagine having to wait on the comfy couches for a while. With a beer. Or two. And that doesn't sound all that bad.

While on a trip for Dark Lord Day 2010, my friend and I stopped at Three Floyds for lunch and a couple beers. It was a great overall experience. We didn't have to wait for a table because it was in the late afternoon so assumable most of the lunch crowd had dissipated by the time of our arrival.
The beers at Three Floyds were incredible. We had Gumballhead, Dreadnaught IPA, and Alpha King Pale Ale. This was my first time having any of three Floyd's beers and they were great.
The food at Three Floyds was quite good and the service was excellent. This is a must-stop place if you are in the area.

When I die, I want to come here.
After a seven hour drive we got here about 10 mins after the opened on Black Friday. The place was already half full. We seated ourselves and our waiter was over to drop off menus and take drink orders. Within 20 mins the place as full with a line at the door.
I think they were getting hit harder than they expected and over the two hours we were there I saw more and more staff appearing.
The service was great despite how busy it was, the food was amazing. Between us all we had the duck, cheese pizza, chicken sandwich, and brisket sandwich. The brisket really stood out.
The inside of the brewpub looks like a biker bar/tattoo parlour and is really a lot of fun, despite making what is some of the best beer in the world they don't take themselves too seriously.
The beer was phenomenal, bought a ridiculous amount to go along with some swag. I had three non beer fanatics with me and they loved the entire experience.
Oh, and they have samplers here now along with wooden trays to serve them on.

8-10 house taps
Middle of nowhere IN, small parking lot, can't believe that they have Dark Lord Day in that parking lot. The loud metal playing was entertaining but I could see it being a turn off for some people. Not me though.
Good food, nice staff but unattentive, surprisngly good beer on tap compared to that mess that is Dark Lord (last couple years anyway). Would definitely go back.
Visited again 10/12/2010
This time there were more like 15-20 house taps. The service was much more attentive and more knowledgeable/accurate than the descriptions on the beer menu. Ended up ordering and splitting half a dozen half pints because they don't offer samples. Oh well. They also had a funny/crappy sci-fi movie being projected on the wall.
I really enjoyed some of the non bottled offerings but was bummed that I still havent been able to try Arctic Panzerwolf. Oh well, some day. Food was good again.

Atmosphere- Great feel to the place I love the kung fu movies that were playing on Friday night. Its just a very laid back its a great place to go and relax.
Quality- All of the beers were amazing as always.
Service - IMO this is where they could a lot better. We waited 40 mins to get in which I understand the place was very busy. But the whole reason I went to the brew pub was for the new beers that they released that night (Chocolate Rain, Hell's Black, Aotearoa, and The Creeper) when we got there CR wasn't tapped yet because they were waiting to go through Aotearoa, I understand. But later in the night I asked the waitress when they were tapping the Chocolate Rain she told me that they weren't tapping CR that night. I was a little bummed but ok there are still a bunch of other beers to try. So as I am on my way to the bathroom I looked up on the chalkboard and they had CR on tap. So I went up to the bar and ordered a glass. I still got to try it but one of three possible scenarios happened the waitress lied to me, she was lied to by the manager, or they decided on the spur of the moment to tap the keg of CR.
Selection - I got to try some many new beers that night it was amazing.
Food - My group only ordered French fries so I will have to go back so I can really rate this section better. Anyways the fries were good and the dipping sauces were amazing.

First of all, this was my first time visiting 3Floyds brewpub. My lady and I got there a bit late, so we missed out on the tour, but watched most of it from a window beside our seats that faces directly into the brewing area.
As you walk in, your greeted with the presence of great beer and great people. The atmosphere was exactly what i had hoped for; Cool, knowledgable people that will answer any question you throw their way. Brew Art covers the walls, along with many, many tap handles (which I cant wait to be on the opposite end of, receiving the brew), Chalk boards with take home lists and prices (very reasonable) and couches when waiting for seating.
The selection is grand, they have a lot of stuff you can not get bottled or growlered, and even some of those are so popular they deplete rather quickly (sodom). They have available all of their yearly products, aged brews, once brewed- brews, etc. And even THOSE sell out quickly! 3F is definitely worth its hype.
Menu, was to say the least, was almost perfect. You have something for everybody- Soup, salad, pub burgers (LEGIT pub burgers too, like 3 inches thick) and appetizers. The service is very friendly and prompt. They do not sit around and hassle you and try to get you to buy their shirts and extra items, which is what i've experienced at some of the bigger brewpubs (not naming names). And the coolest part is, if you don't know what you want, you just spout off what you'd like to see in the next beer (characteristics wise) and they throw names at you with a big smile on their face.
All in all people, if you enjoy beer, good conversation, good drink and good food- you will love 3Floyds brewpub.

So my wife and I finally got to visit the mythical Three Floyds Brewing! With such high expectations surrounding this place and the beers, I was bracing myself for a disappointment. It did not happen.
Three Floyds is one of the best brewpubs in the nation!!!
The location is weird (in an industrial park) and so is the atmosphere, kind of college-town-coffee-place-meets-the-beer-industry-in-Chicagoland. But it is quirky nice inside, and comfy.
You're here for the beer, of course. 18 taps of 3Floyds, plus 4 guest beers. Good? I thought so! :-) Some rarities like Gamorah, Sodom and Barrel-Aged Moloko, plus a variety of styles and ABV's (from 3.4% to 11%).
Food is extremely good. No nachos or spinach dip here! Tapas-style, fancy grub that would go well in a NY or SF restaurant.
A great chorizo taco, pig's head terrine (yum!), boudin (made of pork liver)... pizzas look good. I love how meat-centric they are, and that they make everything in-house.
Service was very good on a busy Wednesday night, and not so good on an empty Tuesday afternoon at lunch time (they had only one waitress and one cook).
Prices are good for the food but HIGH for the beer. $9 for a snifter of Barrel-Aged Moloko!! $30 for a growler of Dreadnaught!!! And they don't refill growlers for some sanitary reason only they know. But other than these minor issues, 3 Floyds is DA BOMB!!!
Beers I tried: Dreadnaught (kind of disappointing), Sand Pebbles (disappointing), Alpha King (got growler, drinkable and nice), Owd English Barleywine (weird, too hoppy/citrusy), Barrel-Aged Moloko, Sodom RIS. On my second trip I had: Robert the Bruce (disappointing), Gamorah/Gomorrah (interesting) and Broo Doo Harvest Ale. From a bomber I bought at the brewpub I tried Moloko, which I also had on tap at The Sugar Maple in Milwaukee along with Arctic Panzer Wolf DIPA. This makes eleven 3Floyds beers I've tried!
Also: Lord Admiral Nelson, Thick White Freeks.

This place is incredible, not only do they brew some of the best beers on the planet, the pub is just about as good. We got a full hour long tour of the brewery by a very knowledgeable guide. Every step of the process was covered and it was really awsome to see just how a world class microbrewery operated.
The pub area is awsome. Having original comic book style artwork all over the walls along with beer signs representing some of the top breweries in the world.
Huge tap selection mostly their brews, some great tap only pub exclusives, and a few impressive guest taps.
The food here is very good as well and fairly priced (I had scotch eggs and mussels). Wasn't blown away by the food but it definitly was good enough to stand up to the quality of the beer!
They sell cases of their year round line up and bombers of their seasonls for a cheaper price than at the stores. They also do growler fills at a very good price. (I believe I paid $12 for a growler and fill of gumballhead)
This is place is a must for any craft beer enthusiast!
