Go here often - once a month-ish over the past year+. I like to describe it as high-end pub food with a great selection of beer, even from other breweries.

Expect a wait of at least 30 minutes almost every day, at any time of the day. Parties of 5 or more will have to wait much longer as all their tables are 2-tops and 4-tops plus the bar, except for one large table. Being that the Pub is so small, they only allow a couple tables to add an extra chair to make seating for 5 for fire/evacuation purposes. So, beware if you're going with a larger group and prepare to wait - you also cannot drink beer while waiting. There is no waiting area, most people wait outside or in their car for a table (give your cell # to the hostess).

Never had an issue with service, as I have heard from others. Servers are knowledgeable and always willing to help... if you ask. I also hear many people complain about them not having Zombie for sale in the kiosk. If that were the case, there would be a line of 50 people every single day, all day. Figure out you local liquor store's distribution and schedule :-)

The only complaint I've ever had is that it's too small, but they are expanding. Parking can be a bitch sometimes because of the construction and how small the parking lot is.

Love FFF - heading there tonight for some Behemoth in bombers. Cheers.

Beer is good but they are arrogant and come off as jerks. I'll buy carryout when I'm in area.

So, everyone knows that the beer here is amazing, but I see mixed reviews for the service and some other aspects. I figure I'll throw in my "2 Cents" about the food, beer, and service (I have yet to do the tour of all the times I have been there now.) Living about 60 miles north of Downtown Chicago I am about 90 miles north of the brewery but think it is worth the trip at least monthly. Seek this place out at all cost.

The Good (there are many!):
- THE BEER! Cask Zombie Dust!!! What else would your go for? Well like 19 other taps, that are simply amazing! Have your Cask Zombie, then I like to do halves of like 10 others (My wife is my DD.)
- The food, while not Michelin star quality is very good! I like the Curry Shrimp Pizza, or the Octopus Bulgogi, or even the Masa Dumplings. Get lunch while enjoying the food.
-Store Selection is great also, while you can't get Zombie Dust everyday, or fill growlers, the prices on whatever they have are awesome $10/6 Pack and the beer will be thoroughly enjoyed.
-Service: I know that this is the down-check for most people, but I have never had a bad experience with the bartenders. They are all super nice and as long as you don't try and tell them how much you know about beer in an overly DB kind of way they are nice. Greg(?) has also been super nice and helpful to me and is very accommodating. People complain that service is slow, but with the crowd influxes that they experience I over look that.

The Bad:
- This is honestly nothing that the place cannot control but the crowds suck! The lines are long to buy beer, and the place is always loud. (I have to put something bad to be fair right?)
- I totally understand their thought process but I need FFF to do growler fills again. I will buy new glass every time if that would cause growler fills to happen.

Definitely worth your time, don't just fit this into your schedule, make your schedule revolve around this place! SEEK OUT FFF!

I made the trip to Decorah from Mankato 4 or 5 times, and it was more than worthy of the investment of 5 hours (roundtrip) driving time. Excellent service, fantastic vibe, and a world-class selection of beers both on tap and to go each trip. If it's not my favorite brewery, it's certainly in my Top 3.

Rating 995. I'm sure this will get lost in the crowd. I was there once last year and once this past weekend. I swore I rated this place last year-but I guess not.

FFF is located in an office/industrial park in Suburban Chicago. Its pretty easy to find if you set your GPS-and its not far off of I-80.

Vibe- Awesome Rock music that is somewhat loud. Strange tattoo-like artwork and a lot of flags including the "Don't tread on me" trademark libertarian flag. Its a pretty small place with 3 small dining areas and an even smaller gift shop on the left side of the place.

Quality and Selection- 15 of their own world class beers on-tap, a nitro-line, and 6 fantastic guest taps. Our fantastic guest tap last year was port older viscosity and this year was Barrel Aged 12 Dogs of Christmas (I live an hour from Akron and haven't seen this on tap anywhere). Permanent Funeral was the highlight both years for me for sure-but high quality sours, stouts, pale ales, etc. This is what FFF is all about.

Food- They have a somewhat limited food menu with one page of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, and pizzas. All are fantastic- but they have a strict no substitution policy-which sucks for someone with food allergies.

Service- Yes the servers know their product and are timely. They just won't go out of their way to be friendly or nice to you. We had a member of our party with a food allergy and since they have a small kitchen they told him they could take it off but not replace it. We told them last year we drove from 8 hours away just to try the place and they were unimpressed-since they get that all the time. We had a decent waitress for 20 min this weekend only for her to stop serving our table and another girl waited on us-then since we were difficult (since someone at our table had allergies) we ended up with a male server. He was cool and would talk beer with us a little bit-but 1.5/5 is a bad ratio.

Also- they have at least a 1 hour wait no matter when you go and they have no place to wait-the two times we went we couldn't even wait at the bar-so we sat in our car and waited for them to call our cell phones.

Overall I love FFF and I am looking forward to go back. Other than their service-this place is world class.

Great beer place. You are going to wait they do not take reservations. You wait because it is worth it. Amazing beer selection. Food is very very good. Not the usual bar food. Service is a tad slow but hey you are there to spend time and have great food and beer.

Awesome beer. We know that already. Surprisingly good food. Mean people, particularly the "host" and the manager. They made my wife cry, seriously. I mean, clearly the customer is not always right, but you shouldn't treat them like shit just because you can.
