I have stopped in at FFF a few times now and finally decided to review. First and foremost, the beer is outstanding. Large selection and all high quality. As far as the brew pub overall, I like the place. It is usually crowded so timing is everything. I try to get there early and make an afternoon of it. I have talked to several people who have had problems with service and attitude but my experiences have always been good. The staff has been friendly and accommodating. Quick with recommendations, descriptions, or a sample. The food is also a great attraction. Nothing I have tried is bad. My friends really enjoy any bbq item on the menu. The atmosphere can be loud, between the music and the usually large crowds, but still not as bad as a college bar.
This should be a destination for any beer connoisseur who is within two hours of Munster, IN.

3 Floyds is the Founders of NW Indiana. By that I mean they have a high quality product, a large and apparently loyal following, and when they release certain beers, it is an event. However, unlike Founders, 3 Floyds apparently is not in a hurry to expand. My wife and I paid a visit on a fairly quiet Wednesday afternoon, after an aborted trip a few months earlier when, at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon, wait times approached 1 1/2 hours. As soon as we were seated, we understood why--the brewpub is way too small. A 100-person capacity may be a generous estimate. Also, the ambiance is not very welcoming. The heavy metal music didn't bother us, but it was loud enough that we had to practically shout at each other. There was some weird fantasy/horror movie playing on the TVs. And the whole place in general was dark and cold. There is no outdoor seating even though they have plenty of space. Their "gift shop" is just a counter where you can buy some cases of beer and a few t-shirts. It's almost as if they don't want people to hang out and relax.

That being said, 3 Floyds produces some excellent beers. Looking past the Zombie Dust, their menu is heavy on the IPAs but all the beers we tried were good. Their food menu is smallish and full of funky ingredients like pork cheeks, but the cheese curds we split were also good. Service was fine and prices seemed reasonable. We were glad we went but just can't get over how they could be bigger and more inviting (and just maybe make more money) if they wanted to.

First time I ever had Zombie Dust was when I was passing through Indiana here at this pretty dark dimly lit place. Service was good but I felt a little out of place as I didn't think I had enough tattoos or piercings on my body to fit in with the rest of the crowd. Call me old school, but yeah, just an odd place, still their beers are phenomenal, so I'll give them that. No food that day for me.

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.
