Long before people chased down the haziest IPAs that stay fresh for two weeks or the sweetest pastry stouts with ingredients that you’d never expect would make it into a beer, craft beer enthusiasts chased 3 Floyds Zombie Dust.
The Dark Lord Himself Has Arisen.
I recently had the honor of conducting a 3 Floyds Brewing tasting that I never thought I would have the opportunity to do. About two and a half years ago, when I was just starting out with craft beer, I did some research and threw together a short bucket list of beers I wanted to try before I died. Well, I’ve completed that list already because, in back-to-back days, I tried Pliny the Younger and engaged in a Dark Lord vertical tasting.

In 2015, 3 Floyds Brewing Co. and Mikkeller opened up WarPigs Brewpub in Copenhagen. Now the two have teamed up to open up a location here called WarPigs Brewing in the United States, and now their beers are available throughout the Midwest. Their flagship beer, Lazurite, is a big fruity IPA that is quickly becoming a fan favorite.

As 2015 comes to an end I wanted to look back at all the great beers I drank that came out of Chicago this year. The Windy City has become a booming craft beer city up there with Denver and Portland. With so many craft breweries popping up, there is no shortage of fantastic beer to try here.

One day, every Spring a vast percentage of my social networking feeds suddenly revolve around one topic: Dark Lord Day. Some will actually score tickets. Many will not. Either way, this “golden” ticket release day serves as a reminder to a couple very important things for me. 1. Spring is here. (DLD is always held the last Saturday of April.) 2. Beer Festival season is officially beginning. Just three short weeks after DLD, Chicago Craft Beer Week will begin… and it starts. 3. There will inevitably be a trip planned in the near future where Chicago pals will bicycle along the Lakefront path to the Three Floyds Brewery and enjoy the day. And lastly, 4. I remember why I love Three Floyds and that is, while they serve as a great beer year round, the majority of their portfolio is made up of great summer delights.
I am an unabashed advocate and lover of all beers brewed in Colorado. In fact, prior to my Memorial Day weekend trip to Chicago, my top five breweries all resided in this grand, rectangular state: Avery, Great Divide, Renegade, Oskar Blues, and Left Hand. You have to admit that Colorado does indeed have a mighty fine selection of brews, right? And those five only scratch the tip of that clichéd iceberg! So, please forgive my Colorado Brew Bias (CBB), for it is ever present throughout my writing.
With that being said, over Memorial Day weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago, Illinois, home to sellouts and pretty-solid breweries alike (Goose Island and Pipeworks, respectively). However, the true grail of this mid-western region lies just across the border in Munster, Indiana, at a little brewery and brew Pub called Three Floyds Brewing.
