4th and final stop on my great midwest brewery tour.

I visited this place on a Monday at lunch. We actually got there about 10 minutes before it opened so we had to wait outside. A few other people were doing the same. By the time we left (about 12:30PM) it was filling up.

This is Three Floyds production brewery with a small taproom and restaurant. It's located in an industrial park in Munster, IN. The inside of the restaurant was decorated with Three Floyds posters as well as some pop culture stuff. A bit of a hipster feel to it, including the employees. Can't complain about the service though, it was very good. They have about 15 beers of their own on tap plus a few guest taps. They have a taster of four of their beers. Unfortunately, no Zombie Dust on tap when I was there but I had a Alpha Klaus porter which was outstanding. Prices were very good. They also sell bottles to go.

The food was pretty good. It's a bit eccentric with some unique ingredients and combinations.

Highly recommend. Great beer (obviously) good food and a good atmosphere. The only downside is the industrial park location but that is forgotten while inside.

Walked into "holy diver" cranked on vinyl, the super friendly bar tender poured me a tall zombie dust and I was in heaven. Had the brisket tacos with another zombie dust and finished it off with a gumball. Great vibe even better beer and good people. Will come back anytime I am in the area. I highly recommend.

Took the drive down to IN during a quick business trip to Chicago. Definitely glad I do so. I arrived just after noon and there was a short line to sit and eat. Since I was by myself they let me order a beer and wait at the "holding table". The greeter was helpful and I was sat within 5 minutes.

I was there for lunch of a Friday, bartender was super nice and helpful. I had great service all around.

The beers speak for themselves, poured in proper glasses and super fresh

Food was really good, I had a steak sandwich and mac and cheese which were just what I needed to enjoy a few IPAS.

Glad I took the trip, I definitely recommend the visit.

I visited with my brother, who lives just across the border in Illinois.

Awesome vibe! We had to wait about 15 minutes before they could seat us (at the bar), but it was worth it for the intimate atmosphere. The decorations all over the walls are intriguing. I'm not sure how to describe it--sort of nerdy with a dark side.

We just had a few beers. The serving sizes seemed a little on the small size, but the beer was excellent in quality. The menu includes a number of unusual items (such as a scotch egg). The food I saw being carried to others looked very good.

Service also seemed good, but we were just at the bar and did not order any food.

The menu offers a dozen or more 3F brews on tap in addition to a variety of options from other breweries (but why would I drink anything other than 3F while visiting 3F?). Also a good (and unique) selection of food items.

Didn't try any food, but it looked good.

3F is definitely worth a visit for anyone who enjoys drinking very high-quality beer and visiting interesting brew pubs. Just try not to arrive at a busy time.

Nice beer pub with plenty of artworks located in the middle of an industrial zone. Nice selection of different style of beers. Merchandise shop is also offering plenty of interesting merchandise. Waiters are nice and helpful with fair prices. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the surrounding area.

Three Floyds is one of those places that can do no wrong. Beers are amazing, food is amazing. Music is played on vinyl. Just wish Zombie Dust was always available for carry out, but when you make something that good, it's not always going to last.

Located at the back end of an industrial parkway and medical center mish mash of an area, is the entire Three Floyds operation from kettle to table. From what I understand, if you get here early on a weekend, you are going to be in line, outdoors, like we were. So, if you're alone, choose wisely: to-go bottle line, or brewpub line.

For those of you that haven't been and expect a beer mecca, check those expectations at the door, or frankly the parking lot. As you can see, this picture shows a very small rectangle of a building, and it isn't lying. The brewery itself is pretty huge, towering over the brewpub, which is a tiny fraction of the size. While bigger than your average local pub, it is only moderately so. It may seat around 100 people, but they are keeping it cozy and it doesn't look like that's changing any time soon.

The taplist is also relatively small, and the size of most pours are as well. While we were there, about 10 FFF drafts, and 3 guest were flowing. Some are moderately to very rare, but most are easily accessible, outside of Chicago, that is. I find that Chicagoans have a harder time picking up regular FFF beers like Zombie Dust, Gumballhead and Alpha King than non-Chicagoans.

Where they are killing it is the food--extremely wide variety of really delicious and unique dishes. Some are twists on classics, (the burgers and mac and cheese were on just about every other table multiple times over). Others are pretty original, like spicy pork ramen with house made chili paste, green beans and blueberries, scrumptious cheese curds with herbs and veggies that make them taste exactly like Cool Ranch Doritos. We also had a thyme sponge cake and sage ice cream dessert that was oddly delicious and went very well with the smoothing effect of Backmasking.

This place has a cool atmosphere, with some oddball or hardcore movies playing silently to a never-ending heavy metal soundtrack overhead. For us, Fear and Loathing was playing, and then, when someone decided to let the children come in and sit at the high chairs (yes they allow kids, a pet peeve of mine), they started playing Finding Nemo (scratching that pet peeve itch to a bleed).
