Did you hear that? That cheer that just swept across the city? It the collective shout of "hell yeah" by beer geeks rejoicing the news that Three Floyds may open a brewpub in the city.
Owner Nick Floyd tells the Trib's Josh Noel that he is scouting spots to open a bar in the city, about 40 minutes away from the original location at his Munster, Ind., brewery. He's pretty tight-lipped on where, but said it would be "anywhere but the Loop." As for timing? Sometime in the "near future."
And if you're planning a trip to Europe, keep an eye out for a possible Floyd-owned pub in Amsterdam, London or Copenhagen; Floyd said he's talking with Mikkeller beer owner Mikkel Borg Bjergso about opening something in Western Europe. Definitely news to raise a pint to.
