Three Floyds Brewing
|Barrels per year||20,000 barrels |
Three Floyds Brewing is an American microbrewery founded in 1996 by Nick, Simon and Mike Floyd in Hammond, Indiana. Since 2000, the brewery has been located in Munster, Indiana. Three Floyds is known for a variety of beers, and are perhaps best known for their once-a-year brew, Dark Lord, a Russian Imperial Stout that is issued every year at a brewery-based festival known as "Dark Lord Day".
Three Floyds produce eight year-round beers and several seasonal beers. Production of these seasonal beers is 4,800 barrels a year.
Dark Lord, described as "a gargantuan Russian Stout brewed with coffee, molasses, and honey; 13% abv." is the beer for which Three Floyds is most famous, and is rated as one of the best beers in the world. It is sold only on Dark Lord Day, the last Saturday in April. Numbers attending are now limited to 6,000 via pre-sold tickets after crowd control problem in the past.
In 2005, Three Floyds opened a brewpub adjacent to the brewery in Munster.
