WoW. Simply AMAZING beer. Had lunch before the tour at 3pm today. The manager was our tour guide, very knowledgable but EXTREMELY cocky and full of himself. He must've mentioned that 3 Floyd's beer is the NUMBER ONE RATED BEER IN THE WORLD about 17 times. We get it, you're the best in the world and you could be billionaires cause you could have so much business but you don't want it cause then it would be a JOB, not a "lifestyle" like you like it. okay, okay...
The food is incredible for what looks like a tiny warehouse in the middle of crapville, Indiana. Couldn't believe what they had on the menu! Although a few of my favorites that I had had before and that were also on the Website menu were NOT available when we went. Disappointing.
No samples offered during the tour! Mostly just listening to this guy go on and on about how FFF is the God of all breweries and everything else is garbage. Hey, believe me, 3 Floyd's has STELLAR beer, but is the attitude really necessary?
After the tour I rushed in to get a seat at the bar, (not a lot of seating in the whole place, especially when you have 40 people running in from the tour)Ok...this was my second time here. The first time my group of 6 was amazed by the quality of the beer, we couldn't believe this place was almost in our back yard (we're 20 minutes away in IL)and were loving it. But the DISGUSTING ATTITUDE from the servers, bartenders, and EVEN the manager was UNBEARABLE. We were trying SO hard to be nice, make conversation, TIP VERY WELL, etc...nothing would stop those jerks from being out right MEAN. They were literally making fun of us and laughing at us from behind the bar. We heard a few "illinois" jokes...um, really? We live 20 minutes away, and paying you right now, you're really going to make fun of the state we're from? Nice business tactics.
This time was a little better, the bartenders were quiet, but did their job. They didn't seem like they WANTED to serve us, and we had to flag them down and practically beg to order another beer, but they did their job none the less. I'm just used to FRIENDLY, conversational barkeeps, who want to EARN their tips, who want to EDUCATE you on their beers. You won't find that here!! It must be a requirement that you're a stuck up, pompous ASS to be a bartender here. (Our server for lunch was actually pretty nice)Maybe they have TOO many customers (cause its the best beer in the world remember?) and they want to hire the rudest staff they can find.
I was disappointed that THREE of the beers I was looking forward to were out. Instead of the Alpha Kong, they had santa kong, which was ok, but nothing like the original A. Kong. I can't elaborate enough on how the 3 other beers I drank were DIVINE. I swear, if it weren't for the horrible service, I'd come here on a daily basis.
They actually have pretty good desserts too, their chocolate cake was superb, and their warm, fresh apple fritters were out of this world.
3 Floyd's you are AMAZING! Just don't act like you know it!
