The brewpub and the brewery itself are already sonically suffused with dark heavy-metal music in the morning. The walls of the bottling hall are adorned with fantasy and zombie pictures, and comic cartoons. The people working here are punk rockers, nerds, and bearded fans of tattoos and long hairstyles – the same sort of people who also constitute the biggest fan community of the beers concocted by Three Floyds Brewing in Munster, Indiana – which are, of course, also savoured by many “quite normal” beer aficionados. “It’s Not Normal”, the motto to which the brewery has subscribed ever since its foundation, is still putting fire in the bellies of those creating ferociously fiendish beers that trigger taste explosions in people’s mouths, and out-of-the-ordinary designs for labels and packaging. “People think we’re just a bunch of crazy head-bangers – and they’re perfectly right,” says founder Nick Floyd. Demand for the “Not Normal” beers had meanwhile soared to such heights that in the end Three Floyds Brewing could actually invest in a “normal” filling line – in fact they had to. In the summer of 2015, the brewery commissioned a complete non-returnable-glass line (including a Varioline for end-of-the-line packaging) from Krones.
