One of Indiana’s most well known craft breweries, Three Floyds was founded in 1996 by Mike Floyd and his 2 sons Nick & Simon. They moved to Munster in 2005 and have since added a brewpub across the street. The Floyd’s started with just a few hundred dollars, a small system, and a love of brewing. They always strive to make the best and most memorable beers that leave no doubts in drinkers mind that they just had a Three Floyds lager or ale. This is especially true for 2 of their most well known brews – Gumballhead and Zombie Dust.
Zombie Dust is an intensely hopped pale ale that was created with their friends in the comic industry. The head has a yellow tint from the body of the beer which is a slightly hazy dark yellow. The Citra hops used give off tropical fruit notes of tangerine, mango, and lemon grass. The taste is impressive, with a bittering pull towards the front and middle palate, followed by a short malt kick, and then grassy, lemony, lingering hop dryness.
Gumball head is a hopped session American wheat beer brewed with a boatload of Amarillo Hops. A vibrant straw yellow, Gumballhead is a crisp refreshing beer perfect for summer. The Amarillo hops produce notes of grapefruit and lemon zest with a slight pepper smell. The flavors balance out perfectly with a burst of lemongrass and citrus fruits and during the swallow the wheat character shines through and the finish is somewhat tart and dry.
Three Floyds refuses to compromise on the quality and flavor of their beer and you shouldn’t either. Zombie Dust and Gumballhead are available for a very limited time. Contact us to find a 6-pack today.
