After the 3 Floyds Brewery tour, the first thing anyone wants to do is sit down and try the beer, right? The brewpub next door is the best place to do it. Not only do they have familiar beers like Robert the Bruce and Alpha King, but they also feature guest beers from other craft brewers and limited run beers from their own brewery.
If you decide you need a little food with your beer, then you’re definitely in the right place. 3 Floyds has both small and large plate dish options depending on how hungry you are. On this visit, we tried the elote — spicy lime chili corn on the cob topped with cotija cheese, mayonnaise and butter. It was tasty, but we had to snap it in half with a steak knife in order to share.
The hamburger was highly recommended because the beef comes from cattle that has been fed on the used mash from the brewery. It’s like a double-dose of beer. While the beer flavor wasn’t obvious, it’s a great story and we like the circle-of-life aspect. The fries at 3 Floyds were hand-cut and seriously good. We also tried the grilled cheese which was little heavy on the mustard and smoked apples, but a nice tangy counterpoint to the beer.
It’s definitely worth it to head out to Indiana, take the tour and stop off for a great meal afterwards. For $20, you’ll walk away full of good food, beer and a little knowledge about how to make both great.
