I'm here almost every Sunday afternoon with my bandmates for some pre-rehearsal lunch. I always feel really comfortable here. The bartenders and servers know us and are extremely friendly. I love the new menu and I have to get a Scotch egg every time I'm there. The sandwiches are great and the pizzas are amazing. Make sure to check what specials they have when you're there. The beer is always fresh and the guest taps never let me down either. If I lived closer I'd be there during the week too. A must if you're traveling through "the region".

Having had the oppotunity to visit FFF numerous times during the past few years I feel that my last visit has prompted a review.

Hit up the pub on a late Sunday afternoon on the way home from Madison, WI. Four of us had a wonderful time going down the tap list...to include things NEVER seen outside the pub. A quite a few nice guest taps...like New Albanian Cone Smoker.

We enjoyed and shared a few pizzas...delish!

They were showing a few flicks while we were there...enjoyed Hot Fuzz and something I did not recognize.

Our waiter was good at keeping our pints from being empty and was helpful in explaining some of the characters on the FFF painting.

I know that FFF pub isn't the most impressive building nor is the place all that...but that I can ignore due to the quality of their brews, the food and the mystique that is FFF. I will continue to come back each and every time I am in the area.

Yes it's in a industrial park, but who cares. Once you walk inside, you are smacked in the face with FFF attitude. They were out of a couple of their own selections on tap which was a bummer, but the guest selection was extremely admirable. Food was extremely adequate, I've had better at brewpubs, but also had much worse. I liked that they tried to lend their own style to the standard pub fare. If you are in the area, stop by, you won't be disappointed. The t-shirt collection is pretty cool too. Hiff got a pretty sweet Gumballhead t-shirt, I would have gotten it too, but that would have been weird.

Didn't really know what to expect when making the trek to the brewery. I had heard that it was in an odd, out-of-the-way location. Quirky is the best way to describe this place. It reminds me a bit of a 1970's basement. Not that this is particularly bad. It is really quite comfortable and certainly nont pretentious like most brew pubs. It is apparent that the general vibe of the often "misunderstood" Floyds carries over into the pub. Had the opportunity to try several tap 3 floyds that I never had the opportunity to try before (Apocalypse Cow, Alpha Klaus, You are welcome). The food is quite tasty and also reasonably priced. Don't expect to be blown away by this place, but if you are looking for good beer at a reasonable price in an industrial-like setting, then this is your place.

Visited on 11-15-08

Took a trip to Indiana specifically to visit Three Floyds on a day other Dark Lord day. The atmosphere is nice, a good mix of tables and couches with lots of cool artwork. The quality was also good, and the service was helpful, if not particularly friendly. The selection however, was a real disappointment. The were maybe 8 house beers on tap, and they were out of two of them. I had a Gumballhead and a Robert the Bruce, which were both very good, but I had hoped for something a bit crazier. The fries were very tasty and the rest of the food looked amazing, next time I'll go there hungry. The prices weren't bad, $5 for a pint. Overall, a little bit of a bummer, but I'll definitely give it another chance.

I drove down here with bmoney575 to see what the atmosphere was like on a normal day (we had previously been there on the insane dark lord day). The interior seemed pretty eclectic with lots of Three Floyds signs and wooden tables and a skateboarding video being projected onto a wall. The beers were served at proper temperatures and the selection was so so. There were the standard 3F beers on tap and with a few extra ones tossed in. They had quite a few guest taps and bottles as well. I was hoping that there would have been some more crazy experimental beers there, but seeing how small the selection there was solidified how small of a brewery it really was. The only thing I had to eat was the fries, which were very tasty. The other food looked good too, with quite a large selection. I wished that I was more hungry. Overall, it was a good trip, but the brewery was not as mindblowing as I was expecting.

Three Floyd's is in the middle of nowhere, but is a special place to grab a brew. There is something wonderful about drinking beer at the brewery, which is more fresh than anywhere else one will experience it.

atmosphere is a furnished warehouse type space, with a nice mix of low lounge furniture and tables and chairs. if smoking were allowed in this space, the decor suggests that you would only be able to see a few feet in front of you. very headshop-esque with lots of color and artwork from the brewery and their beer.

quality is good. a standard brewpub in glassware and cleanliness. no complaints.

service can be good or bad. servers tend to take a bit longer than one would hope with orders and checks.

selection is great. aside from the Three Floyd's offerings, there is a healthy guest tap and bottle list that provides something for everyone. the only complaint here was upon a mid-November visit, there were no dark offerings from the brewery. the darkest beer available from FFF was a scotch ale. normally winter = black beers.

food is standard bar food. the fries were chewy, which did not spawn too much interest in the rest of the menu.

overall, the unique and amiable atmosphere at the brewpub works well with enjoying a pint, and the brews are pretty good as well. cheers!

the experience is one of the best i've had in a brewpub! i went mid-day on a weekday. seating in restaurant is limited and service was .... surley? our young waitress seemed that she had been seasoned with experience serving beer dorks.(like me). she offered no excitement about the product, but somehow this added to the experience.(its almost like saying "our stuff is so good that we know you'll be back so just shut up and order something.) the beer is outstanding which not news. i had the alpha king,rabid rabbit, dreadnaught, and gumballhead. the brewing water is the best i've ever tasted i would love to know how they treat it if at all. i visited in may and the dark lord draft had just been finished according to the bartender.(i wasnt expecting any) prices were reasonable although take home bottles were higher than expected(again i would pay even more). atmosphere was great with plenty of locals and the bartender was less than surly and must have been related to nick floyd, as he looked very similar). i would live here if i lived nearby and would highly recommend anyone in the REGION to make the trek.

This place is great! The only negative is the industrial park look of the outside. The ambience after stepping through the door totally makes up for the outside appearance. Lots of cool art by the same artists that work on the labels. The beer selection is fantastic. They had at least 8 3 Floyd's beers on tap and then 10-15 beers from other brewers across the US and Europe. Lots of good bottle options too (Stone, Hitachino, Delerium, Dogfishhead, Founders, etc). The beer options are comparable to the best places I've been to in Philadelphia, which I feel has the best beer bars in the world in terms of variety and quality. The food was good too. I had a meatloaf sandwich that was above average and it came with some very tasty fries. It looked like the pizza was Chicago style, which I love, but wasn't so hungry, so I didn't order a pie. They also allow you to buy six-packs and bombers. They had 4 options for the bombers. I imagine these rotate in style. The t-shirt were really cool too. Hiff bought the Gumballhead cat with a crashed plane in the background shirt and they had a few more cool options.

If you're in the area definitely check this place out. I'll go out of my way to get back there.

Visited on 10/5/2008.

FFF brewpub is located in a light-industrial park and from the outside it looks like it could be just another small manufacturing plant. A couple outside touches let you know this is the real deal: The metal art sculpture of the "Alpha King / Alpha Queen" out front and the beautiful gardens in front set off an otherwise non-descript metal sided building.

Once inside you can go to the right and find the dining area or turn left and visit the bar room. Everything is kitschy and cool where it counts and non-descript where it doesn't. For example, the floors are simple painted concrete and the ceiling is what you would expect in a metal industrial building, but the walls are covered in cool brewerania, FFF artwork, and wierdo TV and movie references (for example, the framed picture of Sam Elliott cracks me up). There are a few TVs scattered around that show old movies or sports games but these are not the focus of the place. The most important thing to note is that this pub is small. There are only about 10 tables in the dining room and fewer than that in the bar area.

Now for the good stuff. The beer selection was excellent, with around 8 FFF beers on tap and at least 8-10 guest taps. Between all of these taps, there was a huge range of styles and types represented. Most of these beers are $5 per imperial pint, and with several of the beers at 8+ abv, that is a deal! The guest taps are a nice mix of American and imported craft brews, but along with the extensive bottle list they were sort of expensive.

Service was reasonably good, with most of our needs being met fairly quickly. The food was very good. I have heard people bag on the food here but it has always been good or better on my visits.

In short, a relaxed unassuming place with excellent beers for mostly reasonable prices (though some are unexplicably too costly). Definitely worth a visit!

Finally made the trek. We arrived around 5:30 and quickly grabbed a table that a group had left. The place is as advertised. A funky inviting atmosphere. We ordered up the first round, I went with the Topless Witch. What an amazing beer. BOTTLE THIS!!! I stayed in big beerland with my second beer being a Dreadnaught. WOW is this amazing on tap. Our service was decent, we didnt have to wait for our next round. Food came quickly and was very good. I had the Chancellor and my wife made up her own pizza. We shared and were both very impressed. The fries are top notch. Finished off the night with another Dreadnaught. My wife surprised me with a Alpha King shirt. My only gripe would be that I really wish they cut a better deal at their premises on to go brews. But, thats just the cheap bastard in me. I will be back there. HEY NICK FLOYD, BOTTLE THE TOPLESS WITCH!!!!

Visited 4 September, 2008
We splashed our way across rain-soaked highways and suburban roads (thanks, Hurricane Gustav) to an unassuming stretch of industrial buildings. Having seen photos of Dark Lord Day on website, I recognized the 'MUNSTER' water tower and knew we were close. Pulled into the lot at the 11:30 opening time and met our three friends inside, waiting at the bar, pints in hand.

The luscious scent of 'brewing' met us at the door, sweet wort welcoming us inside. Neither outside or in is this an 'impressive-looking' place: the furniture is pretty spartan (even with a few colorful couches), the decor is an eclectic mix of old beer signage and enlarged labels of FFF beers, past and present. The bar to the left was a bit livelier and fuller (even during the lunch hour) but we opted for a table centered in the dining area, near a large window into the brewing room (Gumballhead staring angrily back at us through the glass...). A classic beer movie, 'Strange Brew', played without fanfare on the opposite wall. Overall, there's a straightforwardly simple vibe... appealing for a lengthy hangout.

Service was quick and very friendly. Our guy's name was Greg and he knew his beers, Three Floyds and others. We didn't need much help picking our beers (where to go wrong?), but asked for and received help on the food items. Greg told us a new chef had just joined the team and encouraged us to try items off the back of the menu. Pierogies were a big hit (2 rounds), sandwiches/burgers were tasty and filling, cheese dip was disappointing.

It was amazing how good most of the beers were on draught. Metalmonk's glasses of Gumballhead and Dreadnaught were phenomenal, my wife's pints of Robert the Bruce were also quite nice and my two curiosities - Ostemoeller (smoked helles) and Moloko (big milk stout) were sublime. There were about a dozen FFF beers available, but what made this pub's list so intriguing was the range of outstanding 'guest' brews (at least two dozen).

Not all beers were available to-go in bottles, but all could be had in growlers. Unfortunately, luggage space was limited for our return trip to Oregon the next day, so we 'settled on': 2 Dreadnaughts, a Moloko, a Gorch Fock, and a six-pack of Robert the Bruce (two of which were swapped for Gumballhead from my friend). Prices for bottles seemed reasonable, ranging from $5 or 6 for the smaller 22s to $10 for the Dreadnaught and $10 for sixs.

It was tough to drag ourselves away but after nearly 2-1/2 hours, it was time to go our separate ways. A great time: nice food, terrific company (including our new acquaintance, Andy, from New Orleans) and stellar beer. I'm very glad we made the effort to get to Munster and would love to go back someday.

Nestled stealthily into a boring business-park location, Three Floyds encapsulates everything that great beer is all about--not just because of the beer, but that's clearly a huge part of it. Their offerings are completely and utterly top-notch for beer lovers wanting huge flavors. But everyone already knows that. Having made the trip to this beer mecca to taste them on tap was completely worth the time and trouble. (The guest beer list was excellent too...Belgians, other great U.S. microbrewers...but I couldn't justify ordering any of them considering the scarcity of FFF stuff in my area.)

The atmosphere was great. Unassuming in many ways, though adorned with not only the great artwork that graces their many different labels, but plenty of other beer signs, from Belgians to nostalgic Milwaukee classics. Some interesting, non-related non-beer signs and artwork too. The overall vibe is a welcoming, casual one.

Service was attentive, super-knowledgable, and just as enthusiastic about everything as we were. Our waiter seemed to dig our enthusiasm for the place, its beer and its food. And yeah, the food was excellent...particularly the goat-cheese perogies. Wowza. (good call, Sharon)

Mingled with a visiting NOLA resident, encountered a couple "small world" scenarios, had a great view of the brew room in the back, and reveled in the good times with good company while the TV played the classic 'Strange Brew'. Walked out with an armful of bottle purchases, pleasantly buzzed and with the conviction that I WILL visit this very special place again.

This is a small brewpub with a cozy, stoner/hippy atmosphere. Very welcoming and not overwhelming.

I had the sampler and it was obvious that they take care of their beers. All were fresh and tasted nice.

Tom was our waiter; very nice and helpful guy. He took care of us and made us feel at home offering advice on beer selection and food.

The selection was, of course, great. Where else can you get Gumballhead, Dreadnaught, Blackheart, and Alpha King on tap. 'Nuff said.

What food we had was fine. Just a step above regular 'pub food' but was all I needed while quaffing up the FFF brews.

All in all, a great experience. I hope I can revisit this place again soon, as well as the other Chicago area attractions that rank right up there with the best beer bars in the world.

I loved this place. When I walked in with my wife, I felt like I was in someone's garage. Very funky and comfortable.

Service was excellent and informative.

Food was out of this world. Had cone of frittes with chipotle mayo. Wow. Had seared scallop appetizer with asparagus and tomitillo salsa. Gourmet!!

Brick oven pizza was great with green peppers from their garden. I'm a sausage eater and the Italian sausage on the pizza was great.

Home made cake for desert was sinful. Will be going back and recommending to anyone going near Munster, IN.

Arrived at about 6:PM and walked into what seemed like a basement with a bunch of different stuff on the walls, very homey. It was also surprisingly small, but I really liked it. The staff there was a bit slow, so they were fooling around a bit, but never forgot there were customers. They answered every question, and offered up tons of information. I really enjoyed the fact that they had all there products, as well as some nice Belgians, and a couple micros. My wife and I split the cheese dip and Aegean pizza. It was so flipping tasty. A really cool spot, great beers, great food, and great people.

i had the best burger i have ever had at this place and i am a gourmet snob. the brioche bun was so amazing. i think that this place speaks for itself in terms of beers. they had a bunch of their own on tap but also some guest beers (what's the point.) i wish i could have tried more but then i would have had to sleep on the lawn out front. the three that i had were great. they didn't have the istout which is basically why i drove all the way out to the middle of nowhere. the atmosphere is really mellow w/ a lot of locals and a cool space and bombers for sale to boot.

a must visit.

Traffic sucked once we got off I-80, it was the longest 3 miles ever. The drive from Chicago was not bad. I knew that 3F was tucked away in an industrial area. That was no lie.

As soon was we pulled into the parking lot it was clear as day this was a brewery with a restaurant as the loading bays are right of the doors to the restaurant. Again, as expected. As we walked in the door all I could smell was beer making. What a lovely smell!!

The restaurant is fairly small, it was around 2pm on a Tuesday and most of the people eating there were locals who clearly were not there for the beer. We were. Dreadnaught on-tap... score! Blackheart IPA... nice! Alphanaught... tasty! Not to mention Gumballhead and Alpha King. There was a robust helles lager (it might have been smoked) and one other specialty beer not to mention Pride & Joy and Robert the Bruce.

Since we were on our way back to Omaha we only had two beers each, I went with 5oz glasses of both Alphanaught and Blackheart IPA and Tara did Dreadnaught and Blackheart. Of course the beers was good.

We ordered a BLT and fish and chips. I liked the fish a lot, very flaky and tasty. The fries were okay. I don't think Tara was all that thrilled with BLT. It was food and we were hungry. I wasn't expecting much and frankly our low expectations were satisfied.

The service was adequate. Our waitress seemed way over worked, she was the only waitress on the floor, there was a bartender but he wasn't doing much. When we were done eating we asked if they had a gift shop. They did we were told but our waitress was too busy to take us there. I said we could walk over. She said it was locked. Then she stared at me for a couple moments and said she'd take us there in a few minutes. Okay. So, after about five minutes she grabs a set of keys from behind the bar and escorts us to the next room (next room in the restaurant) only to find a locked display case. Our waitress told us we couldn't touch the shirts! She nodded towards Nick Floyd who was sitting nearby and said he didn't allow it. Our waitress told us to look quickly. I was irritated. I asked about hats, they had the two on display, both were not my style. I did get a t-shirt as I felt some obligation after all this "hassle". Lastly, it was an ordeal to buy the damn shirt... something to do with cash or credit card. By then I didn't care. Sorry I wanted to rock some 3F gear. Don't sell it if it is so complicated.

As good as the beer was and as inviting and chill as the atmosphere was the location is too out of the way. I wonder where the nearest hotel is? I'd stop if I was driving on I-80 but I wouldn't detour from Chicago again.

We headed over for beers and food the friday evening before DLD this year. Atmosphere is cool, very relaxed, and the bar area is pretty nice looking. Some couches along the front wall make it easy to sit back and relax with a fine beverage. Food was amazing, we had the carnivore pizza I think it was, with all sorts of meat and roasted garlic. And this thing was huge and definitely good value. The beers were certainly quality as well, along a wide range of styles. This place is serious, very enjoyable.

I've been to the Brewpub a few times and overall it's a pretty nice place to enjoy a brew. It has kind of a "trendy" feel with short couches, movies playing on the wall, etc. The service has been good every time I've went, never really sat there with an empty glass for too long. There are always a shit load of brews on tap and plenty of stuff in bottles on a menu that is rotated regularly. However, it can get pricey. Five to six bucks for half pints of some stuff just kind of makes you angry. The food is good though, I've tried their Carnivore pizza, steak sandwich, garbage fries (recommend!) and buffalo calamari and they're all damn good. Plus you can get bombers and six packs to go. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area or passing through.

Atmosphere lacks pretense. It is situated in front of the brewhouse. Beer shirts, posters, and signs grace the walls. The bar is a fair size.

The quality of beer is exceptional. I really can't say anymore than that. I had Alpha King and the Alpha Naught. Both were exceptional and left me wanting more. I can only think of a few other brewpubs that the beer is this good.

Selection was nice too, with 10 or so of their own beers on tap and a handful of other brewing companies as well. 30 or so bottles from around the world.

Food was good. I had the fish and chips, the chips were far better than the fish, still good.

Prices are very reasonable especially for this kind of quality.

If you are in the Midwest you need to stop by and check it out. Highly recommended.

Seemingly unlikely location for such a fantastic place. Been here a couple times, including DLD (which is sort of an outlier from the day to day scene at FFF). Great selection of in-house taps including a couple seasonals and lesser known brews, with the staples available in growlers to-go. Some bottles were also available to-go. Guest taps are thoughtfully selected. Service at the bar was great, with a good and knowledgeable barman. The food we ordered was excellent, and Three Floyds beers are some of the best on earth. Prices were reasonable for all we bought. Overall atmosphere is modern, yet casual and seemingly fitting for a brewery like Three Floyds. And, it doesn't get much better than the warm humid smell of boiled wort wafting in from the warehouse next door.

Finally got to stop here on vacation this year.

Small bar area with table seating in another room. Lots of FFF stuff all over the walls. Other cool posters(including Godzilla!)too. While it's not oozing ambiance, it is a nice place.

Nice selection of beer on the taps. Along with the usual FFF offerings they also carry "pub only" beers. I had the Topless Witch. Loved it! They also have many guest beers on their taps.

Food was well priced with a selection that should please everyone. Scotch Eggs are the bomb! A pizza should serve two people. The sandwiches being delivered to other tables looked great too. The service could have been a little better. While our waiter was super nice he was flying solo. I don't know if they were short staffed that day, but they could have used another server.

Good prices on beer to go. A case of Dreadnaught was $100.

The pub only beers make it worth the trip. Thanks FFF, I hope to be back soon!

There is a small bar to one side of the pub, and a small section of waited tables on the other. Lots of cool 3F signage up on the walls. A nice looking place, but not too upscale. Despite the highly acclaimed 3F beers (about 10) that can be found on tap at the bar (along with some excellent, but not too unusual, guest beers[another ten]) I have found the food to be the best thing about the 3F brew pub. I am not going to say it is cheap, but it is not too expensive and it is really d*mn good. My friend is a veggie and she thought the eggplant parm sandwich was the best she'd ever had. I have had other excellent dishes there too. Also I should mention that they always seem to have one or two of their own beers on tap that are not available in bottles. Growlers are available which I always like to see. However it should be noted that although the bar is open on Sundays and you can drink to your hearts content at the bar, there are no to-go beer sales due to Indiana State law. Bottles do not seem to be appreciably cheaper at the brewery.

2011: Waited about an hour on a saturday for a party of 6, not too bad considering. All manner of eye-catching schwag on the walls, an original Dreadnaught label painting, psychotronic art, flags, posters, soccer scarves, etc. Imagine a Bennigans approach to decor, acid dipped in Willy Wonka psychedelia. Great atmosphere, efficient staff, great food. Seems they are trying to position themselves as a restaurant, which was slightly odd. Was told at the door we couldn't stand at the bar for this reason. Overall a convivial experience though, and plan to return when time allows.

I've been here several times under various circumstances, most recently this past weekend. It was a busy friday night, the lot was packed, but we got in and found a table right away. After 10pm it seemed to clear out. They had a movie or film show projected on one wall.

We had appetizers and the homemade dessert special, which was strawberry rhubarb cobbler. Mad Anthony IPA was a guest draft, along with that I sampled a Dreadnaught in a 10oz. for $4. There were a few pub-only drafts, which are worth a trip alone.

Our server Sophie was really friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. We got a couple Gumballhead growlers to go, and also bottles of their latest small batch, Blackheart IPA.
