Big brewhouse that always has young, bearded people moving stuff around? Check. Fantastic, bright and stimulating signature artwork adorning the walls? Check. Practical, hip, old school...3F is all these things and the only thing that keeps it from getting a "5" is 1) the bland industrial area that it is located in (which I'm sure saves all kinds of money so whatev) and how small the brewpub is. It is relatively big compared to others, but weekends are just annoyingly crowded. Heck, 1PM is pretty crowded if the weather is nice.

What can I say? The beer is exceptional. However, I have heard that the brewery is relatively unreliable as far as keeping their staple beers similar from batch to batch and while I can't say that I have experienced this to an extreme degree, there are bottles and pints of Gumballhead that are less hoppy than others, so... still great, though!

Service is great when it is not crowded and as good as anywhere when it is. I can say this, the staff is knowledgable about the beer. Unlike a Rock Bottom or other expansive breweries you are waited on by grungy beer geeks instead of beautiful and buxom, though ignorant, waitresses and, I'm sorry to say, I enjoy this style of server much more.

They have their standard brews, which are great, and always have some seasonals that are not available outside the brewery. However, few beers, besides Darklord and barrel aged stuff, is limited so you can get a one-of-a-kind brew without having to take off work to get there at noon to beat the other beer geeks. Plus, a good selection of guest beers that are somewhat rare and balance their own selection pretty well.

Not as fancy as other brewpubs, but food is satisfying, traditional to fancy yet tweaked nicely to suit the *achem* upscale clientele...myself included.

Food is not as fancy as some brewpubs I have been to, but compare the 3F $9 burger with the Goose Island Stilton Burger. Sure, the Stilton is pretty fancy, but it is nice to have a cheaper option. I had the Tagliatelle: whole wheat pasta, pork sausage, shaved white asparagus, peas, parmigiano. At Goose Island or Rock Bottom this would be $15+, but here it was $10.

Also, beer price is cheaper than buying 3F in Chicago so, DIG!

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.

Like going metal heads basement... in heaven. Went for the beer, which is awesome, but the food was amazing. Offering many styles I did not expect, all damn good.

Stopped by at opening on a Monday. So didn't expect too many people. But the place actually filled up pretty quickly. Not completely full or anything. But, about half full (half empty). I can imagine how busy this would be on the weekend or for dinner. As far as the vibe, I was also fairly surprised at how non-metal and all that the experience was. It's a brew pub, not a death metal club that also has beer. Didn't feel one way or another about the tables, bar, tvs, decor. Fine enough. The beer quality and selection was fantastic. I really only went for their beers, and they were delicious and well poured. The beer descriptions are helpful. Really helps you just make a choice yourself pretty easily. Service was good. Checked on very frequently. Bill on time. Server responded differently to different tables needs. Food very good. Got hot chicken and the fries. Both were fantastic, with many more interesting options I'd like to check out again.

What a great place!
The beer is exceptional, so fresh! Bottle shop is efficient and yet with very polite and respectful service.
The food was really good, the price was a bit high, but they seem to take pride and use quality ingredients.
And right next to an Ultimate Warrior bomber jacket in a picture frame, there was Rowdy Roddy Pipper starring in 'They Live'!!

I love 3fff beer but both times I have been to the brewery it has been terrible service. They really could give a shit whether you stay or not. Really shitty because one of my favorite breweries but never going back again.
