If it was only a brewery, this place would be in the perfect spot--in the back of an industrial park. However, because there is a fun, eccentric, colorful, magical, and intriguing brewpub that hosts one of the largest (maybe the largest--I truly don't know) beerfests in America (Dark Lord Day) every April, one might think it's in an odd place. But, I think the physical location adds to the overall je nais se qua. The food is just ok, but if I were to ask a thousand people why they go to FFF's, none of them would say for the food. Some of the most magical beer on planet earth is born here. It's fantastic to sit at the bar and drink snifters of some of their concoctions. Or take the brewery tour while you enjoy a gratis bottle of Gumball Head. I love seeing that odd diminutive gardener with the long gray braided pony tail walk through the pub in his flop hat and rubber boots. Who is that guy? Certainly not Dr. Floyd. The one responsible for so much joy. Oh yes, my friend. That is him. So what's not to love about such a lovable place. The service! The servers, I'm sure, must not only pass, they must excel--I mean, Magna Cum Laude proportions in the manner that they finish "How To Treat The Customer Like He/She Is Expendable And Meaningless To Me" school. I truly despise the wait staff there. Not
just because they're jerks. Look, if you run across a Copperhead in the woods, you might not like him, but hey, you were in the woods. If, on the other hand, you're strolling along streets of gold and pass through the pearly gates to find that you were to slow in avoiding a striking, venomous viper, well, you might hate that snake quite a bit more. Snakes shouldn't be in heaven. Nor should they be in FFF's. Condescending, nasty, power-hungry devils that they are. My advice to would-be patrons: enjoy your wonderful FFF beer without interacting with the wait staff other than ordering and paying. In my educated opinion, any patron who speaks well of the FFF wait staff or seems to be their apologist is very, very likely a victim of a psychological phenomenon called cognitive dissonance. Research it if you're not familiar and the light will come on. I assure you.

The place is packed, but it took twenty minutes for anyone to take our drink order. The food is top notch and worth the wait as I had their burger that was topped with pulled pork, coleslaw and onion straws. Also, you can't beat Zombie Dust on tap! I was surprised at the size and diversity of the beer selection as most of their beers are limited in stores.

Came all the way from California and aside from the wedding I was attending, I made it a point to stop by Munster. After my flight to Chicago was delayed coupled with heavy traffic out of the city towards South Bend, a detour seemed in place as 3 Floyds was on the way.

Arrived late on Thursday, about 9:45pm, greeted by a smiling face and were immediately seated near the take out beer counter. As we sat down we were greeted with menus and asked what we wanted to drink. With all the talk about Permanent Funeral, I just had to order one. There are some quality beers in CA, Russian River to name one of the more popular ones I frequent. So the bar for good beer is set rather high.

PF did not disappoint, down to the last drop. Amazing tasting beer that can be mentioned in the same sentence as Pliny the Elder. Wanting to try something else, round two was Alpha King. Another solid beer from 3FB, very pleasing to the palette.

I had not received the second round when I went to see what I could take back to CA. Seeing PF, I jumped at that and a case of Zombie Dust. A cool $160, not including the t-shirt. Now how does one get 36 bottles back to California?

Dinner was absolutely amazing! The menu, quite impressive didn't have much for a vegan. Thankfully the waiter checked with the chef and I was provided two options. How cool! Was impressed when I order and got my pizza. Tasted great, coupled with amazing beer.

The brew up was not as I expected it, but the staff was welcoming and friendly. The music, seemed to be set to the names of the beer, hard, heavy and strong in nature. Loved it all.

So thanks 3 Floyds for an amazing experience. Can't wait to return in the future!

This place is randomly located in the back of what seems to be an industrial park. The place itself is much smaller than expected with a smaller bar than expected. I went on a Saturday night and surprisingly got a spot at the bar right away. This is basically a dive bar, with good beer. Constant metal music blasting all night. The food was really good, as was the tap selection. I also walked away with a case of Zombie Dust that night, worth visiting once but not something I'd make a point to visit again.
