    Hey everybody, I'm planning a trip to Three Floyds brewpub in Munster. Does anyone have any tips for me? What's the best day to go? I'm planning on getting there on a Sunday afternoon. Also, I have to bring back beer for some friends. Do you have to order beer to go from the bar or is there a sperate area to buy six packs, bombers, etc.? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
     
  2. Heads up- you may want to plant this in the great lakes forum, they cover Chi town/IN

    Get there early and order Zombie Dust...my two pieces of advice...went there for the first time last Sunday, and it was awesome...the beer to go area is just to the left of the bar...you'll see it...food is fantastic as well...had the octopus appetizer and the braised short rib burger...might be the best french fries I've ever had too...cheers!

    Sunday is usually very crowded with a wait to get into the pub if you're not in the first wave of people to get in when they open. Just a warning
     
  5. Cancel your trip...Three Floyds burned down yesterday.

    Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it. I definitely plan on getting there early AND getting some Zombie Dust. Sorry to post in the wrong forum. I guess I need to work on my reading comprehension skills. :D
     
  7. Don't shoot the messenger but they are sold out of ZD right now.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm most likely not going there for another month, so hopefully it'll be back in stock by then.

    I would also recommend going to the bottleshop or gas station (cannot remember which it was or the name of it) that is right by the brewery to pick up beer. If I remember correctly they had some FFF that was not available at the brewery along with other beer.
     
  10. If you can't get Zombie Dust to go, then don't go. But, they usually are only out of ZD for a few days. I would buy a couple cases if you can spare the $70. Food is good and they will have special drafts you can't get in bombers or sometimes any where else.

  11. Just curious, is it $70 a case?

    Prepare to wait because the pub is always packed and is small to begin with. Definitely get whatever seasonal they have there and some of the specialty beers that they don't sell in 6 packs: Arctic Panzer Wolf

    Thanks for the tips everyone! I really do appreciate it.
     
  15. Get a bottle or two of Rich Life and Ryed da Lightning, both are fantastic.
