Figure 8 is indeed in a small building right now on the outside edge of town.

But, this brewery is definitely going places. You will not see anyone that has craft taps within any sort of driving distance in Indiana that doesn't consistently or occasionally feature Figure 8 beers.

There's a reason for that. They brew very good beers.

When you enter the taproom, on the left is a painting of the owner rock climbing. That's where the name of the brewery is from - it's a very basic and handy knot used in many things, but especially rock climbing. The taproom has 6 or 7 tables, a counter, and an Addams Family pinball machine in the corner. It's a modest facility right now, but we hear they're going to be moving to larger digs in the future.

The same tenacity and spirit of rock climbing is channeled into his beers. A wide range (11+?) is available at the tap room.

There's a little bit of food available here, but we've seen folks carry in food without any worries too. If you're trying one of the higher ABV beers, you may want a little cushion.

We've tried over 15+ beers from there, either on premises or at various bars around Indiana. From hoppy to malty to everything inbetween, they brew complex and high quality beers.

I'm excited about their beers - and excited to see what they offer in the future.
