Yup. All 5's. It really is that awesome. The food was insane. The beer lived up to its hype, and then some. The server we had was chill. I even saw a sticker from a really small brewery by my house behind the bar at three floyds (Bad Brewing Co. in Mason, MI). (260 characters)

This place is amazing. I have been here multiple times and always can not wait to go back. The food is great. Always get the short rib burger, it's just that good! And nothing needs to be said for the beer. Everyone knows it is AMAZING! Always great stuff on tap that you cant get anywhere else. Experiencing FFF on DLD is a must for any beer lover. (349 characters)

no need to google the definition of perfection. it is here. the combination of the delicious beer with pizza, fear and loathing being projected on a wall, and constant grindcore music playing was absolutely divine. i want to crawl into the wall and live there. we were seated right away, and the staff was awesome. after it was done we walked a few steps over to get a shit ton of bottles to take back to michigan with us. it was such a great time (447 characters)

Perfection !!! Top rated microbrewery in America. Can't find anything I would EVER change. Robert the Bruce is the best beer ever created. I love beer, but this one is perfection bottled. Great fun staff and growlers to go... Heaven on earth !!! Munster IN is just across the border into Indiana from the Chicago area and 60 miles from my house but the drive is minor compared to the reward once you are there. If you love beer you must put this on your Bucket List !!

My only wish is that they would put their kegs into The Beer Market in Lincolnshire IL more often. Lots of 3Floyd's lovers there but not much availability from the brewery so far so 3Floyd's guys.... help me out here!!! (690 characters)

I've been up here many times and finally gonna get around to review it...

This is like a dive bar, biker hang out, and tattoo parlor rolled into one. Of course, some of the best beer in the Midwest is available ontap, so that always means a good time.

The food is much better and fancier than I expected from the decor-- though some dishes seemed high priced.
The tap list is nice-- usually about 8 to 10 FFF handles and the same number of visiting ones.
The prices for beer are about average for a brewpub, and it is tough to beat brewery fresh dreadnaught.

Growlers and various merchandise items are available for sale. The waiters have always seemed friendlier and more approachable than the bartenders. (710 characters)

I consider this one of the best breweries in the US. And that is purely based on the beer. The brewpub is a beautiful thing.

Brewery meets coffee house. Couches, funky artwork (think tatoo art), a projector movie (With no sound), and room for maybe 30. Not quite punk rock, but close.

Food is awesome and unexpected. Try the steamed mussels. They'll make your eyes rolls back in your head.

Beer is better. There are some beers they only serve on tap. They had a sublime Belgian on tap that was just amazing.

Go there. Try the beer. Eat the food. Take the tour (on saturdays - Get the EARLY).

10 out of 10. (611 characters)

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. (1,558 characters)

Okay so if your going to three floyds you know what to expect, and it does not disappoint! Expect to get there at least 20min before they open on weekends otherwise you'll have to wait outside because they are so small. I actually like that they do this because unlike some snobs on here I'm not fat and lazy and actually know what to expect. Since they keep it not crowded it's very enjoyable, I can actually sit down, relax and enjoy my food/beer. The atmosphere is metal/brewery themed. It reminded me of Kuma's comer in Chicago which also is very small and you have to wait to get in if you don't show up right when it opens. I found the staff to be very courteous and nice. I feel like if you go in there well mannered and without you head held up high expecting people to wait on you hand and foot then you will receive some of the best service in the world. The food there is PHENOMENAL. Now this is not some five star quizene but it is some of the best bar food I have ever seen. And the presentation is GREAT. The selection is awesome, they have 3floyds beers you can't get anywhere else and they allow you to pick up cases of whatever you want. I got a case of Zombie dust a case of gumballhead and 2 bottles of behemoth. Over great place with a great and friendly staff I will be going there for many years to come. And for all you nay-Sayers out there I say get you head out of your ass and stop loveing the smell of your own farts. (1,444 characters)

2013 boys weekend to Chicago from Toronto with stops in Marshall (Dark Horse), Kalamazoo (Bell's), Grand Rapids (Founders, HopCat) and then 3F. Stopped for Sat lunch at 3F. Beers are obviously awesome, no Zombie at the Kiosk that day but grabbed Dreadnought, Alpha, Gumballhead and Artic Panzer so a fine haul. Wonderfully eclectic crowd in line, had a great talk with some conspiracy theorist hunter guys on their way to fishing and a yuppie couple who were probably taking the Audi for a trip to a Republican convention. Everything you can imagine and in the words of Cyrus from the Warriors "Nobody is wasting nobody". Very fine line up. Short wait to get into brew pub and the food was somewhat surprisingly really good. Decor was great, i am not going to lie I tried to buy the Ultimate Warrior jacket they had framed on the wall (this was before his untimely passing. RIP Warrior). They had Zombie on tap which was awesome. Everyone should visit this place and if you live in Ontario and have 4 days I highly recommend this excursion.... (1,043 characters)

No question, these are the beer gods of the universe, if not the suburbs of Munster. You won't get a bad product from them. They attained cult status years ago. Give a FFF beer to a prohibitionist, and and watch them forsake their vows! (236 characters)

We stopped by August of 2014 and there was a 1-2 hour wait on a Saturday, nowhere to wait but a parking lot so we left. I gave it 5/5 because I like the beer. If you can go on a weekday, do that. (196 characters)

I wanted beer, I wanted metal and I wanted beards. I got everything I asked and a t-shirt taboot.

The atmosphere was a mix of horror, comics and metal. Heavenly. I heard an old Butthole Surfers album and a High on Fire album while I was there. Not my favs but I don't think I've ever heard either at a bar before. Our server was attentive, knowledgable and had proud viking beard.

3F had all their current offerings on tap which is enough to earn a 5. They have a guest bottle list which may be nice if you're a Munster inhabitant but being from MA it was merely cute. We are are here for 3F, were are here to dominate.

The food was phenomenal and one of the best meals we had during our whole mid-west trip. This includes being visits to Michelin rated and similar high end restaurants. For apps we had beef jerky - why don't more places do that? As a fitness meathead sometimes I just want a cheap, easy protein option to go with my beer - in house made jerky is perfect. My favorite part of our meal was the jerky but my wife liked a flight of ice creams that came paired with 3F beer - I believe coriander with Dreadnaught, Maple with Robert the Bruce and Orange with Zombie Dust.

As with most things mid-western 3F was dirt cheap. For an app, 5 beers, 2 entrees, and dessert it was under $100. That's silly cheap.

So good the only other times I've been so beerily blessed have been at Ebenezer's. (1,409 characters)

World class beer, world class food, world class beards, world class tats. Easy ride from Illinois if you can survive the highway of death(Indiana toll road). If it snows good luck! Just hop in your V8 interceptor and you'll be ok. They don't refill bombers so don't even try it! (278 characters)

70 mile drive each way does not deter me from making the trek twice a week, or more. This is one of my favorite places on the planet, and the mussels steamed in Gumball Head--with bacon-- are the best seafood item this East-coaster has ever had in the midwest, no exception, full stop.

My wife hates beer and loves this place. Last week, we had farmers' market radishes with herb butter as an appetizer for two bucks. If that's not Chef activism! Love something so much that you want everyone to try it whether they're likely to order it or not. The beef the burgers are made of is fed spent grain that made your Alpha, Dreadnaught, or Gumballhead, and these guys know how to make food that not only tastes like food but that helps sustain a community and builds a community around not only craft brewing but sustainable agriculture, local food, and organic small farm living.

When I get to Three Floyds, I want to hug the servers and bartenders and hear about their week. I'll probably end up institutionalized; I know they must think I'm crazy and wonder why I say hello to everyone. Go there. Reward yourself. Alpha King really is better on tap, and anything I've tasted has just been so well presented and offered with honest craftsmanship and care. If this is the postindustrial future, I'm all for it! (1,309 characters)

I went on a friday afternoon in the middle of the summer. The atmosphere is perfect for those who are like me and don't take life too seriously. It's fun with lots to look at all over the pub. The employees fit right in. As far as the service goes, I was immediately greeted by the bartender who poured me a 219. Great beer but didn't get to try the food this time around. I also picked up a couple cases and some bombers from the store next door. The cashiers were also very friendly. The pricing on beer to go was extremely reasonable. $35 for a case of Zombie Dust and $10 for a bomber of Dreadnaught with no sales tax. (622 characters)

Wow after all this time it was worth the wait! The brew pub is awesome! I will admit that I might just be a little biased as a loyal Three Floyds patron, just kidding, this place rocks! As soon as you walk into the pub, you instantly feel at home. When you sit at one of the many couches it feels like having a beer in your buddies basement, only your buddy has 20 kinds of amazing beer on tap and there are about 75 people around.

I won't even get into the beer here, just look at their many reviews, you will quickly get the point.

The food is top notch, I have tried everything from the buffalo calamari to the royal with cheese to the pizza and I have never been disapointed.

One last thing, the service is also great. Bonnie you kick ass! (754 characters)

Amazing food and beer. I love the environment it's a place for younger people and super fun. Prices are very reasonable and I got a pizza which was incredible. Tried because local but I will go back many times for more. If you haven't been here you have to go at least once! (274 characters)

FFF has been described as a "cult." I have drunk deeply of the kool-aid.

The honest truth is that you're either going to dig FFF, or you're not. If you have a problem with any of the following: people with lots of body mods (tattoos and piercings), metal music, weird 60s/70s "exploitation" type films, dark/evil themed decor and beer names, or "honest, but not Applebee's stupid-fake-friendly" type service... FFF might not be your kind of place.

I happen to like all of those things, so FFF is my kind of place. I live in Lafayette; it's a 95 mile drive to FFF. My wife and I still go fairly often. (More than we should!)

The food is awesome. A brewpub with sweetbreads on the menu? Bone marrow? House-made beef jerky? Plus FFF's kick-ass small batch beers on tap? HELL YES. Sign me up!

The guest beers also don't suck.

(And no, Steve, we're not going to talk smack about FFF on Yelp... :D ) (898 characters)

Three Floyd's is honestly the best brewery I have been to. Most brewers have a flagship beer that is indicative of their best style of beer. It is kind of natural to be better at one or two styles of beer over others...the difference is that 3 Floyd's not only does every style well, they are also extremely innovative. There is no question that every brewery sometimes misses, but the ratio of hits to misses is amazing! (421 characters)

These guys have the midas touch. Not a bad beer in the house and the food was equally as fantastic. Mountains of meaty goodness with arguably the best beer in America. (169 characters)

Wow! This place lives up to it's motto "It's not normal". The atmosphere was great. The location is a perfect oasis amidst several commercial, light industrial, buildings. I had thought I was in the wrong area, but then I was welcomed by the "Alpha King" with a keg under arm (a sculpture at the entrance). Walked into the brewpub and was just spinning with excitement. The beer logo artwork helped light the place up. Couches, tables and a small bar made for a cozy getaway. There are over 20 taps that include the house beers, plus several other guest beers. They offer belgian, american craft and other beers on tap and in bottle. They offer nearly all of their beers in 12oz or 22oz bottles. The staff was really helpful and were happy to talk beer. If you like really good beer, you won't be disappointed here.
The food was amazing! The Scotch Egg (hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage and panko crumbs and deep fried) is served with a spicy garlic aioli and was excellent. I followed up with the meatloaf sandwich, which was very good. It was served on a glazed pretzel roll (I think the glaze was maple syrup) and a side of hand cut fries. I couldn't stay long, but I would definitely make a trip to Three Floyds again. If your in the area this is a MUST on your list of places to visit. (1,293 characters)

Zombie Dust is one fantastic beer! Thanks Floyds! Initially the label creeped me out a bit, but I soon got over that when I tasted it! Wow, a real true to life complete beer! I am from South Bend, IN and I hope you fellow Hoosiers have great success with your quality product!!!! (279 characters)

Atmosphere - The atmosphere is very lively, though they normally play too much soccer for my tastes, which would prefer it to be none. (I'm hilarious, I know)

Quality - It's Three Floyd's, come on.

Service - Every time I've been, they've been nothing but cordial, kind, and high quality. Last time I went to pick up a six pack, the service person was a former rugby player, so we had a lengthy conversation and it made my quick run through very enjoyable.

Selection - They have a great selection of their own beers as well as some imports. If you're looking for craft beer, it's definitely a go to.

Food - Fish and chips. Fish and chips. Fish and chips.

Living so close to FFF, I've had quite a few visits under my belt. It's a place I would go out of my way to visit if I had to. Luckily, I don't.

And yes, if you're under 21, you can come eat and/or hang out. I've done it many times when I was underage. (912 characters)

I live very near 3 floyds and visit the brewpub often for a beer or to grab stuff to take home. I have to say overall that since I discovered floyds it is one of my favorite places to have a beer, not only because their beer is excellent but also i think that the atmosphere is pretty laid back. People will obviously point out that there usually is a wait to get a table or sit at the bar, it is worth it. Metal and punk playing in the background, a projector playing movies on the wall and good food and even better beer.

I have to say some of the changes they've made to the food menu over the last few years haven't always been great, I feel like they have gotten too fancy pants with some of their offerings and some people won't enjoy some of the intense flavors of some of the dishes offered. That being said they have some really great menu items and I really like their french fries. The service has always been pretty good, the servers and bartenders are always knowledgeable about beer and food offerings. I think that the staff could be a little more "friendly" but to be honest as long as I get my food and beer in a timely manner I don't really care.

To summerize, great atmosphere, great service, world class beers, and good food. Worth every second of the wait if you are in the area so don't pass up the opportunity to check 3 floyds out. (1,359 characters)

Awesome experience! Plenty of amazing beer on tap including the standard year round Zombie Dust and Gumballhead. Death metal on the speakers, but not too loud for conversation. Cool, outgoing, and helpful bartenders with good knowledge of craft beer. Not a huge menu selection, but really amazing food that isn't too expensive. A great time at a place as unique as the beers they brew! (385 characters)
