Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Last week I had made plans a couple of weeks in advance to go up to Two Brother’s Brewery for a visit on Thursday. I finally got around to visting the site last Wednesday to get directions. To my dismay, they only have tours on Saturday’s. I still wanted to hit up the Two Brother’s eatery to catch a bite as it is only a short 30 minute drive from home. Well, that fell through also and I didn’t get a chance to go. Needless to say I was the kid in the candy shop that didn’t have enough money – I had high hopes.
Along comes Friday and I start thinking that Three Floyd’s Brewery is out in Northwest Indiana and my cousin’s house, where we were going to spend the fourth, was about five minutes away. What better way to enjoy something while still having to spend time with family! 😛 Went to their website and it took a few minutes for me to realize they have two sites: one for the beers and one for the brew pub. I noticed that tours would be Saturday at 3:00pm. Perfect! Stop there on the way to the fourth jubilation.
The brewery is in an industrial park and is located in a rectangular, medal sided building. Reminded me of a pole barn. As we got closer I noticed the parking lot only had two cars (probably from drunks on Friday night and/or shackers) and no Air Jordan Femme real activity. So my joy turned quickly to disbelief as I knew they were closed for the fourth even before I read the piece of paper taped to the inside of the door.
Over the course of three days, two brewery hops denied. So now I am planning a trip up through Wisconsin and into Minnesota in the next few weeks to hop between three to five breweries. I will be picking up the phone and calling ahead this time around!
