In 1996, Three Floyds Brewing Company LLC was founded by brothers Nick and Simon with their father Mike Floyd in a rundown warehouse on in a rundown warehouse 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 and today they have grown to be known the world over for their famous “Dark Lord” as well as many other brews.

3 Floyds’ flagship beer, Alpha King is a big American pale ale that pours a deep amber with a creamy head. This ale is brewed with Centennial, Cascade, and Warrior hops giving it an intense citrus aroma and a crisp hoppy finish. Another exceptional brew Gumballhead, an American wheat brew which was initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer is brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat to give it a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach.
