Brewery Description:

Three Floyds Brewing Company LLC was founded in 1996 by brothers Nick and Simon with their father Mike Floyd. The original brewery was built by Nick and Simon in a run down warehouse located in Hammond, Indiana. The first beers brewed by the brothers were designed to be a departure from the fairly bleak craft brewing scene in the region. Nick and Simon brewed intense balanced beers that were and still remain “not normal” by conventional standards. The first brew house was an old 5 barrel (155 gallon) kettle fired by a wok burner with old open Swiss cheese tanks as fermentation vessels. This very small and eclectic system was utilized to produce full flavored draught ales for the Chicago and Northwest Indiana region. With increasing support and demand for Three Floyds ales the brewery slowly and methodically grew, eventually outgrowing the Hammond location. In 2000 the whole operation was moved to Munster, Indiana where it remains today. This new era for the brewery included a new 15 barrel (465 gallon) brewhouse and three 30 barrel bonifide closed and temperature controlled fermentation tanks. With new quality control measures, equipment and space to grow Three Floyds looked toward bottled products. Due to limited resources the first bottles of Alpha King Pale Ale were contract brewed and bottled. This lasted until 2002 when a reconditioned Italian bottling line at the Munster facility started to spit out beautiful 12 and 22 oz bottled Three Floyds beers in house. – www.threefloydspub.com
