At first, driving up the FFF was a bit perplexing to think that such delicious beer eminates from such a plain building in a boring office complex but that quickly was lost when the beer flowed. A simple looking brewpub exterior adorned with some beer paraphernalia invites me to check out what is inside. First impression tells me that the FFF guys didn't just rest on their impressive laurels and slap doors on a brewery but actually took time to build a decent brewpub to compliment their excellent brewery. I liked the bar that wrapped around to the left and the couches that offer a relaxed feel with the tables. Tons of beer on tap that span the FFF bews to even include other offerings. Man, was I happy yo see so many FFF brews at once, but alas, I was driving so I limited myself to the Alpha Kong.
Their grub was decent. BBQ sandwiches and um...oh! Dark Lord barrel aged on tap!
Could you convince your Mother to go here. Yes! Clean and neat and ummm...oh yeah...they have tons of FFF on tap! Holy crap! I wish that I lived closer to here. At least I have te General Lafayette Inn to keep me happy.

I made my way to FFF driving home from MN last January. We pulled up and quickly discovered that Munster isnt on eastern time, so we were an hour early. Curses!!! Id have to make my way back. And I did. In style.
I came back for the DL release party. When the doors were thrown open, everyone lined up to get their greedy little mitts on their allotment of 06 DL. I then reflected on the ticket I had in my pocket and thought, This reserves a sixer for me. Whats the rush? So I headed inside with Enlil and his big brother. There were hundreds of blood thirsty beer fanatics outside and surprisingly no one at the bar. The three of us grabbed some counter and ordered up a round of Oaked DL. <insert nostalgic sigh here> We were some of the first, so we got the smooth little low balls instead of the plastic they were handing out later. Oh! Maybe next year, they can sell little DL low balls!!!
Any way, I then went and got BlitheringIdiot and WoodyChandler to come get some lunch and forget about the DL for now. They then got their glass of ODL and we ordered some lunch. It was a barbecue themed day, so we all got different plates of various meats. BIs order never showed! That was crappy, but it was a pretty busy day. We kept waiting for the last order, but it never came. The waitress was always running by, but we never bothered her. Turns out she forgot.
Looking around, theres the bar cutting across the left side of the building with a few tall tables across from it and a movie screen playing Star Wars. The right half is all tables, and not too many at that. Theres a bunch of large FFF bottle logos up on the walls along with some of the merchandise up for sale. Outside, I could see the stagnant line of beer zealots NOT drinking ODL. I laughed. I really like the quaint size of this pub and the number of un-cluttered windows. It gave it a really nice, small feel.
The bar wasnt that big, but they had what looked like the entire FFF family on tap, or at least a fair representation of them. They also had a good selection of bottles and a tall boy of PBR, just in case. I was impressed. Its been my experience that a brewery will only have so many of its brews up at once, but FFF really went out of the way to get a selection out.
Id really like to come back to FFF on a normal day to enjoy a pint and see what the feel is. I liked it a lot, but the hype and anxiety of the day may have skewed my interpretations. I guess Ill just have to come back.
I stopped back in Dec. of '06 to meet a few BAs and grab some dinner on my way home to MN. There I discovered that their sandwiches kick some serious ass. I got The Chancelor, which is a piece of pork schnitzle on a pretzle roll with red cabbage. Amazing. The ladyfriend got something equaly as tasty. The food's great and the service was right on too. I got brough the wrong drink so it was on the house. Very nice. This will bump up a few of my ratings.

Stopped by the brewpub on Friday, before the Dark Lord release. I was very anxious to check this place out. Quite small inside, Sixteen Candles was playing on the movie projector. Quite busy, due to the next days activities. Three Floyds giant size beer labels are hung on the walls. Room for eight to ten at the bar. Maybe ten tables and a few couchs for people to sit on. Chalkboard taplist and guest taplist, absolutely fantastic. I didn't have any food, my bad. But I did have a chalice of Rabbid Rabbit ale, very good, and very easy too drink for 8%. Next, I had the Drunk Monk, a superb hefeweizen, heavy on the banana. Very refreshing, and at 4.5% so easy too drink. Definitely a return visit is in order. Thanks for the great weekend, Three Floyds!!!!

I arrived at Three Floyds Brewpub after a long drive from Dayton. It was really exactly how Id imagined it would be, only a little nicer. It is a small place, and really cozy. There were a few couches to sit at, a projector playing movies (Im not sure what movie it was, but Molly Ringwald was in it maybe The Breakfast Club or 16 Candles?), a nice sized L shaped bar, and candles lit at the round tables. Everyone in the pub seemed like they were regulars (who wouldnt be if you lived close??!). When I got there it was around 4:30 on A Friday afternoon. We had several Three Floyds brews before deciding to order a pizza. We got the herbivore (or something like that) pizza, and it was pretty tasty! There were a few other things on the menu we wanted to try (like the fry cone w/ the neat side dippers), but after eating most of the pizza we were stuffed. There were a decent amount of people that started rolling in once about 6pm hit. Our waiter was nice and did a good job. We were never left with empty glasses, or anything of that sort. Around 7ish he disappeared and a young woman was waiting on us, and Ill have to admit that things got a bit slow, but by that time the place was packed. I wasnt at all annoyed when the service slowed down, if anything I felt sorry for the poor girl for having to deal with the incoherent drunk group that had just got out of a baseball game. I had a great time at Three Floyds. We met one of the brewers who was really personable and chatted with many of the locals throughout the night. Everyone there seemed to really be enjoying their night and laughing which made the whole experience a really memorable one and worth the trip!

I enjoyed seeing Three Floyds moderately busy and then, very busy. It gave me an idea of how they do business and I have to say, they handle things very well.
The quality was very good....the beers were very fresh (as you would expect) and the food was very tastey. Service was excellent....our waitress was very attentive, friendly and willing to accommodate.
The beer selection was good, the food selection was above average, in terms of the number of items offered....it's a small(ish) place and I wouldn't expect them to have a huge menu. What they did offer, as all very nice.
The food tased great! I had a very tastey Rueben. YUM.
I only listed it as pricey because I couldn't find any middle ground between pricey and reasonable. I actually thought that the food pricing was about average and the beer pricing a little above.
All in all, a very nice little place that I hope can continue their growth without too much in the way of growing pains.
Check them out. I'm sure that you'll enjoy them.

I have been to the brewery several times for release parties but this is the first time I have been there since the brewpub is up. They had an amazing line of 20 taps with 12 being guest taps and the rest were amazing 3F brews. They also had 23 bottles with 12 of those being guest beers and not just run of the mill guest but all were solid beers. Even the PBR in a can isn't that common.
The garden in front of the doors is a nice touch with some hops and herbs popping up in-between the rocks making this no ordinary industrial park. Inside the bar is to your left and tables are to your right. At the back of the table area there is a nice big glass window that looks into the brewery and the tasting area. It was nice to see the jumbo bags of malt stacked to the ceiling. At there bar there is plenty of seating and some tallboy tables mixed with couches. The paint on the walls gave it a hip feel with some nice local artwork like gumball head originals and tin signs.
The menu looked great but because of the large crowds they only had turkey sandwiches that were pretty dry but the fresh potato chips were great with the beer. Even though it was a full house we still got service pretty quickly and the staff was all very friendly.
I usually expect the big juicy hops in everything 4F does but at the brewpub they had some nice "more to style" beers like the saison and the malt liquor. I was impressed by their ability to change it up a bit, and big Belgian beers that were guests.
This place has a hip north side Chicago feel with crazy beer selection. I will always stop by if I head anywhere on Rt. 80.

Arrived on Friday afternoon pre Dark Lord Day. It was actually around 4:00. Wanted to try all of the 3 Floyds brews that I can't get bottled and get a bite to eat or two. We were here until 11:00 hence an expensive tab.
First thing I noticed is how small and laid back the brew pub is. For some reason I was thinking the 3 F's brew pub was going to be this huge restaraunt type deal but I like the way it is much more than my anticipations.
As you enter the tap handles catch your eye. Tremendous amount of 3 Floyds and man Very good "guest brews" also. The artwork throughout the place is really cool. They have enormous prints of their lables throughout the place with some other nice pictures worth mentioning. Including my favorite a pic from the Moloko Milk Bar in A Clockwork Orange.
The service could have been better it took a few minutes to get a waiter to our table and to keep him coming back. We did talk with one of the employee's for a good while and he was very nice, easy too talk to cool guy.
I first ordered a Rabbid Rabbit they just put on tap (Moloko Stout just ran out dammit). Tough choices on what beers to try unless you're going to be there half a day like I was. I also had all on draught a Dolomite, Gumballhead, Dreadnaught, Brian Boru, Drunk Monk (spectacular), and a few guest brews. But the brew of the night in my opinion was the Alpha Kahn. Terrific beer.Ordered a herbivore pizza that was very good although the sauce was somewhat too acidic.
I just wish we had a brewery like this in the Dayton, Ohio area. It may be a good thing we don't or I would probably be there everyday. Now to hit the showers and prepare to try an Oak aged Dark Lord and buy some bottles.

Stopped here to grab a pint and a bite while heading back to Michigan. It was midafternoon and fairly dead. Talked to a few of the locals who were extremely friendly and they said it gets really busy weekend nights and sometimes during the week. A bit smaller with a wall tv and a side tv both showing the Cubs game. Selection was quality. About 7 3F's taps and 7 more non 3F's taps which were all diverse. I ended up having 3 of their beers as I kept wanting to try more and more. All were quite good and unusual. I also had the Royale w/cheese which was solid pub grub. Service was a bit slow, friendly but not overly so. No growler fills for pub specialties which sucks but whatever, I might as well just drink them there! This is a definite stop if you're anywhere in Northern Indiana, no make that Indiana.

Stopped here a few weeks back. You enter into a small seating area with the bar area off to the left. On the back wall, there is an area for projecting television or movies. They were playing an old cheesey horror flick when we were there. The feel of the place is very comfortable and relaxed. As I sat at the bar, I had good conversation with a few of the locals. They were genuinely interested in my story and I hope to see them when I make my way back. At one point Nick Floyd sat next to me and was chatting with other folks at the bar. I like the idea of the folks making the establishment run sitting down for a beer with those there to enjoy their labor. Our server was very attentive to me, though she didn't get my attempts at humor. She never let my water go dry and always asked if we wanted more brew. We had an order of the garbage fries, loaded with all sorts of spicey and fatty things that made them really tasty. I absolutely loved my time here and can't wait to be back for more.

Went this weekend with my wife and dispholidus1. Nice little brewpub attached to the brewery in the middle of a small industrial complex. Atmosphere was pretty good. A good amount of people were milling about in there, even at noon. Lots of beers on tap, including Duvel and some other fine non-3floyds brews (and PBR for $2!). We tried thulza doom, dreadnaught, drunk monk, alpha claus, black sun, and peachball. All were damn good.
We ordered a mushroom and mozzarella pizza, which tasted good but was mildly burnt. dispholidus1 has some buffalo calimari, which i partook of and enjoyed thoroughly. I had a scotch egg that they pulled off as well as any American estabishment i've been to. And my wife had some kind of cheese dip served in a bread bowl and that was tasty too. Service was fast enough and they answered questions well (what's this bullshit about them releasing dark lord one day a year?) i'll be making another trip i think.
