    Boyfriend’s birthday was last week and to celebrate, a bunch of us took a trip to Munster Indiana for a tour of Three Floyds Brewery.  This small brewery is known for their high quality, unique beers and their “it’s not normal” attitude which is apparent in their beer names and artistic labels. 

      I don’t know much about beers or brewing but the tour was very interesting just the same.  The brewery was started in 1996 by 2 sons and father and they’ve been  growing ever since!  They pride themselves on using only the freshest ingredients and their beers have won several awards and a strong fan base as a result.  

 As far as drinks go, I am not much of a beer girl (as you might be able to tell from my blog name).  But it was a veritable heaven for the beer fans in our group.  I tried a few of the different brews and my favorite was definitely Alpha King (pictured below).  And on the girly side, I love the labels!  Each beer has it’s own character and unique drawing on the front. 

    This was a special treat for my dad because Gumballhead is his favorite beer!

  So if you ever find yourself in Munster Indiana looking for something to do, the tour is free and the beer is cold.  But be prepared to wait in line at the brew pub on a weekend night.  Since the establishment is still very small and the demand keeps growing, they’re running out of places to put people!   You can also find 3 Floyd’s beer at liquor stores and certain bars throughout the midwest.  Locally, I know for sure Chalet Party Shoppe and A Constant Spring in Goshen carries it! 

Hope you’re having a good Monday!
